JALAPENO DR PEPPER BEEF JERKY
Olivia found this great recipe on a website called Hey Grill Hey. This quirky recipe can be made in either a smoker or an oven and makes this delicious beef jerky. The spicy sweetness of it makes a great jerky combination.
I don't know if you have ever tried to make your own jerky but it can be great fun. My father used to make a teriyaki jerky using a food dryer when I was a kid. Boy was it good. Beef jerky seems to be all the rage these days, at least it is around where we live. It is a great protein snack, but you may have noticed it can be kind of pricey as well.
The biggest complaint I have about store bought jerky is the consistency. Sometimes it can be melt in your mouth tender and other times it is so tough it can rip out your dental work. Making your own can help you control the amount of dryness, the texture, and the amount of spice or salt you use If you have never tried making your own beef jerky, I would recommend you try it and experiment until you get something you really like. . Don't worry if you don't have a smoker. Try the oven and enjoy!
