Accidental Jerky

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Found a new way to make Jerky ...

About 3 weeks ago I tried the Curlys Beef bacon mix or whatever you call a prepackaged spice and cure and ground my beef to lean so it didn't make a great bacon.

What to do?

Well I had 7 lbs of these nice neat slices of beef about 2.5 iches wide and 9 inches long ... Hmmm ...

JERKY! I whipped up a quick terriaki marinade with a bit of canjun spice and dipped them in and smoked them. The BEST jerky I ever ate!

I'm making another batch today and I'll smoke it tomorrow night - sometimes mistakes are good!

Sure - It was supposed to be Beef Bacon. A premixed spice package from Curley's Sausage -


but I ground my beef to lean (about 85% so it was to dry for bacon. I sliced it real thin and made about 7 lbs of it and had to find soumething to do with it so I mardinated it in soy sauce, and a bit of Italian salad dressing and smoked it. It makes the best jerky I ever ate!
