Preparation : Day II
Today we decided to experiment with making jerky. An obvious staple. We researched several ways to do it, and came up with; the ghetto jerky maker 5000! AKA The oven and a box fan.
We did beef first, we were going to do more beef but the one of the cuts we bought for our jerky test ended up having a lot of fat (boo for putting it on the bottom!) we mostly just got it to mess around anyway. We’re going to look for a good cut of meat tomorrow when we check out solar panels/chargers at a shop in Brooklyn.
Beef is going great, still cooking as we speak. We kept it very basic;
Teriyaki, soy, LOTS of ground pepper (because we love us some pepper) and salt.
Because the best sites said to wait a total of 6-10 hours we’re going to do that, but in the mean time we cut up some chicken to make as well. We didn’t want it to be the same as the beef (as that would just taste odd, plus the Cat Guy hates soy sauce) so we mixed it up a bit!
Onion powder, garlic salt, honey and Teriyaki sauce.
We’ll have to see how that one turns out. He’ll probably love it, me? Not so much.
Either way I know someone who is loving it! It’s driving her crazy!
