Great recipe/method Pops has for this.
I made some especially for my for my wife. She loves SOS. I'm not a fan of dried beef, or SOS, but that is because I've only tried it in army, or with store bought stuff. ICK!
First time I ever made it. Followed Pops recipe/method best I could. Turned out fantastic!
This stuff is good enough to eat as a snack. Try THAT with the expensive Armour® jar crap!
Very hard to slice whole hunk into slices! I ended up cutting it lengthwise in thirds, then I could get a knife to go through it, for fairly thin slices. Some were still a little thick.
I was very happy to see the iridescence appear, that Pops mentioned, about it showing it was cured right.
Took a couple of photo's before vacuum packing.
Iridescence doesn't show up very well in the flash. I should've taken the photo during daylight.
I think the next time I will make two kinds. One for SOS (salty), and one w/less salt for snacks/sandwiches and my BP.
