My boyfriend, A. happens to make the best beef jerky — and like me, he never really sticks to one, standard recipe.
He discovers the meat, and then decides what he feels like tasting — and adds such spices and sauces to the marinade for the top round beef cuts he discovered when I FINALLY took him to one of my favorite grocery stores: CERMAK!
Once the beef was sliced (which was the hardest part) — it was placed into Ziploc baggies with marinade for flavor-blending! A. uses a variety of spices, and sauces like: Worchestershire, BBQ, soy sauce, steak sauce, etc.
It’s best to marinate overnight — so this was a waiting game!
Some pieces in this batch got slightly crispy, because SOMEONE fell asleep! (Making homemade beef jerky is tiring — apparently!)
It’s definitely a great, healthy, protein-filled snack, and can even be made Paleo!
