Beef Jerky

while on holiday in Portugal I stumbled upon a supermarket with a rack full of Jack Links beef jerky. Various flavours, original, terriyaki, pepper, sweet and hot etc. Very expensive..... unless you think about it. €6,50 for 100g, but it has 50g protein. I bought loads of the stuff and snacked on it6 on the beach etc. and I really liked it. Have a few packs back home with me. Now I'm looking for ways of making it myself. Any ideas ?

    This has been covered before I think, quick search should pull it up. It's pretty much dehydrated beef with flavourings, mmmm. Could have a few bags now actually...

    found the recipe Tony, going to give this a go. Nutrition values look good.

    Watch the salt content - can be horrific.

    update. I made a batch of ca. 400g Jerky based on the recipe in James' newsletter. Skipped the Worscester Sauce, used cayenne pepper instead of chilli and added a few drops of tabasco in the marinade.
    After 3 hours I dropped from 110c to 80c as I thought they were getting too dark, did them for 5 hours. Result ? really fantastic, excellent texture and much better tasting than the packeted product. Highly recommended.

    stay away from the chilli ones in selfridges, i bought like 3 strands and my throat was burning the next day, and i eat hot stuff on a regular basis.

    Hazard a touch of narcissism without shame.
    There is no room for junk food in any diet whatsoever, leave the junk in the bin.

    kindof defeats the purpose. I like hot things too, but I just ate the equivalent of 250g beef as a snack at my office desk.
