Hello all. I'm attempting to make beef jerky for the 1st time. I bought a Weston jerky cutting board that came with some seasoning for 5lbs of meat and a packet of their pink cure. I assumed the packet of cure was for 5lbs as well, since no instructions were provided. I used half of the seasoning and half(about 2.25 tsp!) of the cure with 2lbs of meat and 1/2 cup water. Now after some reading on the forum and further investigating, guess I should have only used about 1/2tsp. Do I have to throw this meat out, or can I somehow salvage it? It's been about 4hrs since mixing it together. Thinking about taking it out, rinsing it off real good with cold water, and then just adding some seasoning without anymore cure. Thoughts? I can handle if it's salty, but don't want to get sick. Thanks in advance for your advice.
