I’m a huge fan of beef jerky, I love it for the simple fact that it’s just a nice chunk of protein that’s quick and easy to eat but also satisfying. Lately, the stuff from the store is feeling less healthy and more full of junk than I want to eat, so I set out to find or come up with a beef jerky recipe for something I can enjoy again. I didn’t have to look far, I’d found this recipe a while back, pinned it and I started from there. The spices looked solid and I only had to tweak it a bit for our tastes, and I left out that wretched beef broth too. That stuff is full of nasty chemicals, I’m pretty sure she used homemade, although it’s unstated.
Why ground beef jerky?
I have a couple reasons for making ground beef jerky:
- I happen to have a lot of ground beef because our beef order came last month, it always feels like so much beef but somehow we ration it out to the end of the year.
- And I bought a dehydrator last fall too, with it came 2 jerky guns. I was like what are these for?? Did some research and never looked back.
- Ground beef jerky is delicious and cost-effective
Both solid reasons for making ground beef jerky but this stuff is so tasty you don’t need a solid reason just a jerky gun and a dehydrator.
This is a Ground Venison or Ground Moose Jerky Recipe too
You can use game meat for this recipe as well. Try Ground Venison or Ground Moose! I bet Elk or even Bison would work too. I know for sure it’s going to be lean enough. I think the only adjustments you’d have to make would be to the spices. That will depend on your meat and how gamey it is. What I recommend is starting with some of the spices in the mix. Then cook up a small amount. How does it taste? Remember it’s going to get stronger the longer it rests in the fridge. If it needs more spice, add more and cook up another small bit. Add spices until it’s almost strong enough, then figure it’s going to get more flavorful after resting. Boom, a Ground Venison Jerky Recipe! Or Moose. Or Elk. Well, you get the picture.
