• [...] Beef marinade is a little bit trickier than making a chicken marinade. Not because it requires any special skill, but because beef has a much stronger flavor than chicken does. So when you’re deciding on your flavors, you need to use things that not only enhance the flavor of the beef but that can really stand up to it. [...]

    Not gonna lie, you sound more like you’re living with a 5 year old than a grown adult man….You shouldn’t try so hard for someone like that ;)

    The jerky post rocks and it’s high time I get myself a hydrator, but your relationship post brought tears to my eyes. (Maybe it’s just that sort of day for me ….but wow, what a great guy you’ve got.)

  • [...] Before I made these yummy treats I decided to get a little input from Craig.  I’m not sure why I did this, but every once in a while I have a lapse in judgement and seek his commentary.  I suppose it has something to do with that “get your kids involved” mantra (yes, I roll Craig and our dog into the children category on a regular basis).  So I asked him if he liked Rice Krispie treats as a kid.  I got the expected shoulder shrug, but when I pressed further I learned that he really liked them better with Corn Chex.  When he saw that I came back from the store with Corn Flakes he proceeded to tell me how much he disliked Corn Flakes and marshmallows and would not be eating any of these.  (I wasn’t overly convinced of this statement after having heard the same thing when I made the homemade beef jerky.)

  • Okay, first of all, your ‘about’ page is spot on. I am a dude, and an engaged one, and I do a majority of the cooking in the house, just because I enjoy it. However, when the fiancee decides to cook, it’s awesome, because she can. Just my two cents ….

    Now, about the jerky – that looks fantastic. I love beef jerky with all my heart, and also happen to have a nesco dehydrator – but my jerky has never turned out as well as yours appears to have. So, I will be following your direction on my next jerky endeavor!

  • I love beef jerkey and I asked, my step daughter to send me 10 packets from the States and I have a balance of 2 packets right now. Now with your recipe I guess I should try to make it myself. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  • Charcuterie is a great word. Even though I don’t make much that falls into that category. I imagine a homemade jerky must taste amazing compared to the store-bought variety!

  • The dehydrated form of beef jerky is just so “off” compared to the Asian style: https://www.htyusa.com/productDetail.php?productType=BEEF%20PRODUCTS&&sku=1HF6 I can never ever get used to eating these things, though the chickie loves it so.

    Nonetheless, beef jerky for dinner sounds kinda awesome. Kinda like bottomless boba milk tea for breakfast.

    • I haven’t tried the Asian style…is it softer? But based on that link, now I want to try it.

      How about you bring the boba and I’ll bring the jerky? My guy loves the boba.

  • I’ve never had beef jerky. Isn’t that awful? Thanks for the recipe so I can see how it is prepared. Now I think I have to try some because its really interesting.

    October 18, 2010
  • Love the seasoning in this jerky. One more reason for me to get a dehydrator – any brand you recommend?

    October 18, 2010
    • The one that I use is the Nesco dehydrator. It’s highlighted in this post. I love it!

      October 18, 2010
  • First off, i loved your relationship advice! The jerky sounds delicious! My boys love jerky and I don’t buy it often because it’s expensive. I think I will be making some soon !!!

    October 18, 2010
  • I am so going to try beef jerky when my fall travels calm down a bit. I love how you packaged them!
