We all know about the wild bills beef jerky recipe, super popular in the USA. But do we know the history behind it? Domesticated and game animals are both used to make jerky. Game animals such as deer, kudu, springbok, kangaroo, and bison are also used to make jerky from domesticated animals like cattle, pork, goat, and mutton or lamb. Jerky made from beef is a popular and convenient snack. The Quechua term “ch’arki” means “dried, salted meat.”
Beef jerky is produced from lean slices of beef marinated in a variety of sauces, spices, and other ingredients. Jerky is a finished product that has been fully cooked. There is no such thing as raw meat. Cooking meat does not, of course, make it safe to consume. Because jerky has so little moisture, it may last a long time without rotting.
Know about the Ingredients and the Recipe
Steak: Steak is the main ingredient of this recipe. Steak is actually a slice of meat. Steak can be grilled, pan-fried, or baked, here we are using 4 lbs of flank steak for baking.
Black pepper: Black pepper is the most used and famous herb all over the world. It can add a huge amount of flavor with little use. In this recipe, we wll use 2 tsp of black pepper. Its better if you freshly ground it.
Chili powder: Chili powder is used to add a little spice to our steak to eventuate the taste of the beef jerky.Measure 2 tsp of chili powder.
Garlic Powder: Garlic powder is used to marinade our beef here.” tsp of garlic powder will just go fine.
Cayenne Pepper: Set aside 2 tsp of cayenne pepper and it will give the dish a flavorful blast.
Onion Powder: Onion powder has a sharp aroma with the flavor of sweetness. I love using onion powder instead of fresh onions in this recipe. 1 tbsp or 3 tsp of onion powder is equal to ½ cup of chopped raw onions. Here you will need 2 tsp of onion powder.
Liquid smoke: Liquid smoke is used to add smoky flavor without the actual fire, so it can be used on any dish that you want to taste as it came from a smoker. Here we are using liquid smoke to add a smoky flavor to our jerky
Frank’s red hot sauce: It provides an amazing tang to this dish. So, we will use ½ cup of it and it is widely available on amazon or the supermarkets.
Soy Sauce: It’s made with soybeans, wheat, salt, and a fermenting agent. Here we are using soya sauce as a table condiment for adding extra flavor to our recipe
