I like beef jerky, being somewhat of a semi-health-conscious-nut who occasionally goes to the gym to push lumps of metal towards the sky.
What I don't like is the price: $100 a kilogram here in New Zealand. I also don't like the weird-ass junk additives that they chuck into it. And finally, I don't like that the stuff tends to be "wet" (aka not properly dried) so they have to seal it in cute plastic packaging - with whatever that has in it.
Result: 650 grams of damn delicious, high-protein, properly-dried beef jerky.
Roughly 40g of protein and 200 calories per 100g - damn good snack, helluva lot better for you than the crap you buy in a store. Especially the so-called protein bars: that shit is fulla processed soy.
Cost of electric current for drying, while negligible, not included.ReplyDelete
Probably far less than a dollar, realistically. Like running a crockpot for 6 hours.Delete
Hmm - lean beef. Apparently roo meat is especially lean, wonder if that would make decent jerky? Of course, it would still taste like dogfood.ReplyDelete
You might be surprised. I'd give it a go if I had a local source.Delete
Got a mate who's gonna try some venison.
