Makin' Jerky

Whole Eye of Rounds were on sale so I picked one up yesterday and had it sitting in marinade since yesterday. I just put it in the dehydrator so it can go overnight and it should be done when I wake up. I like it thick and chewy so it should take at least 8 hours. Her it is now. I'll take a pic tomorrow when its finished.

No matter how much beef jerky I make, it's so delicious I finish it all off in less amount of time than it took to make it.

I'm perplexed by this stuff, got some in Costco as my son likes it, it looks like something you would feed to a dog. I mean that in a nice way.

Packaged jerky is popular and has an 18 month shelf life. It does resemble rawhide doggie treats compared to freshly made. I still buy it that way, only... I check the package's date code in order to buy the freshest. I try and buy it freshly made from a swap meet or a county fair. Chewing on tough beef jerky has caused me to need root canal or two over the years. I have a really strong bite.

Oh Princess, the beef jerky I used to get everyone as an Xmas gift years and years ago was so fresh, so thinly sliced, with even some fat in it, you could gum it.

Due to Degenerative Bone Disease, I have no teeth and dentures just don't quite chew well enough. I haven't had a steak in almost two years and jerky...well. Tough for a carnivore to become old and toothless.
