The best barbecue beef jerky recipes are simple, but you’ll need a few tricks to get the job done.1.
Start by getting a few ounces of BBQ beef jerkey.
Barbecue jerky can be very tender and tasty, but if you want to get fancy, you can use beef jerk that’s a little softer, and it will take longer to cook.2.
Get the meat.
Barbecued meats can be incredibly tender and delicious, but they can also take on a spicy flavor.
A good barbecue jerky will have the meat, spices, and seasonings well balanced.3.
The meat needs to be juicy, tender, and flavorful.
Try to add a little salt and pepper to the meat before cooking.4.
The spice of a barbecue beef jerk is often used in recipes that call for the use of spices.
In other words, the spice of the barbecue beef can be used in cooking the meat to create a more complex flavor.
For example, use a little curry powder, or chili powder.
If you don’t have those spices, use ground cloves or cayenne pepper to spice the meat and make it more intense.5.
Cook the meat for a longer period of time.
The longer you cook the meat the more flavor will be lost, and the longer the jerky cooks, the more the flavor will return.6.
Serve the jerkey as is.
You can put the meat on the grill or broil it in the oven.
If the jerk is too tender for you, you could add a small amount of seasoning to give it a nice rub.
If it’s too soft, you may want to cook it in a saucepan to soften it up.7.
Serve it hot.
Try adding a little lemon juice or vinegar to the jerki to bring out the flavors.
You may also want to add some barbecue sauce to make it a little smoky.8. Enjoy!
