How Is Allergy-Free Beef Jerky Made: 3 Steps
Want to learn how allergy-free beef jerky is made?
Read below to find out how: from the cow grazing all the way to the supermarket shelf!
#1 From the grasslands…
All cows live on the field. But not all cows eat grass during their lifespan.
To cut costs, most farmers feed their cows with soybeans: it fattens them up quickly and requires less land mass than natural grass grazing.
And while allergy-free beef jerky doesn’t have to be 100% grass-fed and grass-finished, PREVAIL Jerky is.
100% grass-fed beef jerky means that the cow ate grass throughout its entire life. Not only was the cow healthier during its lifespan, but a grass diet also adds more flavor and protein to the beef jerky.
Regular, soy-fed cows build up fat which means the beef jerky is fatty too. Also, since soybeans aren’t natural for cows to eat, farmers give them antibiotics and hormones to counterattack infections that arise from a soy diet.
#2 The cut and marination of the beef
To make proper jerky, you need to cut against the grain.
What’s the grain, you ask? Its ridges on the beef, which mark the muscle fibers. You need to cut against them to make sure the beef jerky stays tender, not chewy.
Then, once the beef’s been sliced, it has to be marinated for around 3 hours or overnight.
Most beef jerky is marinated in soy sauce, which can cause food allergies. PREVAIL Jerky is allergy-free and marinated with coconut aminos and other organic spices, making it safe for everyone to eat.
#3 The cooking
Once the beef has been marinated to gain a spectacular flavor, it’s time to make it into proper beef jerky!
The slices of beef go right into the smoker grill and cook over a rack for around 4 hours to become tender and delicious.
Then, to make the final touches, the beef is cut up into pieces that are a perfect snack.
Yum! That’s the story of beef jerky, short and sweet — just like it’s meant to be!
