Diy Teriyaki Beef Jerky Easy, Healthy Snack!

Diy Teriyaki Beef Jerky Easy, Healthy Snack!

Slice your brisket against the grain into 1/4 pieces. Cut off any obvious pieces of fat. In a large mixing bowl, combine the Worcestershire, soy, teriyaki, liquid smoke, and molasses. Next, add the garlic powder, onion powder, brown sugar, and sesame seeds to the mixture. Combine well. Take your slices of brisket and drop into the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for 24 hours. Place the marinated meat in a dehydrator at 160F for 6 hours discard remaining marinade. Leave the cooked beef jerky out to cool/dry for 24 hours once dried out make sure you store in zip lock bags or an airtight container. Should be good for 4-6 months. *This seems like a lot of sugar for what were calling a low-carb recipe but most of the sugar stays in the bowl when you remove the meat the amount of sugar that is actually absorbed into the meat is minimal but if staying truly zero-carb is important to you, you can find sugar-free teriyaki sauces in most grocery stores and sub a sugar-free maple syrup for the molasses. For the brown sugar, mix 1/2 tsp molasses into 1/2 cup granular sugar substitute (we like Stevia in the Raw) until well blended and then use 2 tablespoons for the marinade (reserve the rest for your morning coffee, its amazing.) If you slice your own meat Place the meat into the freezer about 30-40 minutes before you need it, makes it easier to slice. Another time saving tip If you have a meat market with a butcher in the store they will be more than happy to cut the meat to your specifications, even remove the fat for no extra charge:) Bonus!! Notes on buying your brisket When you go to the store, they usually have two cuts of brisket, a whole brisket or pre trimmed brisket. The one that you would be looking for the trimmed brisket, this saves you time. No Dehydrator No Problem Y Continue reading >>

Thank... no changes, will not do this one again just because it was too peppery for my liking. Could try it with less pepper. This was my first time making jerky in my new dehydrator.

One of my favorite low-carb snacks is beef jerky. It's really hard to buy good jerky and I took to making my own awhile back. Today I Picked up 4 London Broil steaks on sale. I found some apple chips for the smoker also, which was a nice find for Albertsons. Got the jerky marinating in soy sauce, worcestershire sauce and maple syrup. Time now to make a batch of my jerky rub and fire up the smoker. I like it hot. I love jerky. I am very fotunate to live near some great smoke houses. They sell all sorts of jerky from turkey to classic beef. Making your own is a money saver too I'll bet! Ha. I just bought some jerky today to gnaw on while I paint my den. I hate painting, but love jerky. Got it all in by 10 pm. Got the wireless digital thermometer hooked up. I try to keep the temp about 110 degrees. Past experience says it will take between 12 and 18 hours. The trick is to not "cook" it. It's a lot of work, but it lasts a long time and you can't beat it. At the 12 hour mark now. The thinner pieces are starting to get close to finished. For the next few hours I get to taste test them as I pull pieces out of the smoker. I love making my own jerky, have you tried using a dehydrator?? (sp?) it comes out pretty good, but you really dont get that spoky flavor, I make up for that using liquid smoke in the maranade, I usually make a batch every couple weeks, and it takes anywhere from 6 to 10 hours to make.. Have any of you tried deer jerky?? Oh man, talk about heavenly. I love deer season every year cause I know we will have jerky. YUMM YUMM !!!!!!!!!!!! Have any of you tried deer jerky?? Oh man, talk a Continue reading >>

Healthy Snacks For Diabetics

Healthy Snacks For Diabetics

Meat Jerky If you’re looking for a high-protein, low-calorie snack, jerky fits the bill. While some beef jerky may be on the “do not eat” list for having unhealthy ingredients, a quality jerky can be a healthy and convenient snack choice. Choose one with natural ingredients made with lean beef, chicken or turkey. Avoid those with artificial preservatives like MSG or fillers. For example, an all-natural Simply Snackin Beef Jerky has only 60 calories and packs 8 grams of protein. Couple it with a piece of fruit for added fiber. (From: "> Choosing healthy snacks on-the-go can be challenging, especially if you’re diabetic. Your medications, calorie needs and the amount of carbs in each snack all need to be considered.

These Bbq Tofu Jerky May Help With Type-2 Diabetes

These Bbq Tofu Jerky May Help With Type-2 Diabetes

These BBQ Tofu Jerky May Help with Type-2 Diabetes Flavoring tofu can be tricky; for me, working with tofu has meant trial and lots of error. This recipe came out especially delightful, so I decided to share it with you! BBQ Tofu Jerky is best dried overnight using a dehydrator. If you dont have a dehydrator or want to shorten your cooking time, you could try your oven at the lowest setting(about 200 to 300). If using an oven, the tofu may only need 30 minutes of cook time (keep an eye on them as I havent tried the oven method myself). The product that makes this BBQ Tofu Jerky shine is organic liquid smoke . If you havent checked out this product yet, you are going to want to! Once youve read through the recipe, keep on scrolling to learn more about how tofu may be able to help those struggling with type-2 diabetes These BBQ Tofu Jerky May Help with Type-2 Diabetes Whisk together the tomato powder, coconut aminos, liquid smoke, coconut sugar, and paprika to create a marinade. Brush the marinade onto tofu strips. Soaking time is not required, but the longer it soaks in the better! Put the marinated tofu strips into a dehydrator. Dehydrate overnight (8 hours), flipping halfway through (or until tofu reaches a 'jerky-like' texture). Use agave nectar or other natural sugar, instead of coconut sugar. People who suffer from type-2 diabetes often experience kidney disease, which causes the body to excrete an excessive amount of protein in their urine. Evidence from a study has indicated that when patients with type-2 diabetes consumed soy as their only source of protein, they excreted less protein than those who consumed their protein from animals. (1) In addition, research has shown that magnesium-rich foods (such as tofu) or magnesium supplements may be helpful for people Continue reading >>

Turkey Jerky (diet)

Turkey Jerky (diet)

*NOTE. This recipe involves handling raw poultry which is a common source of food contamination. Remember the 3-C rule. Keep the meat: CLEAN, COLD, and COVERED Stir together seasoning mix in a bowl. Set aside. Transfer turkey from package to a 1 gallon zip-lock freezer bag (or similar). Flatten the meat out in the bag to fill most of the area. Open the bag and spoon in 1/3 of the seasoning mix. Now stand the bag up and let the meat fold over on itself. Close the bag back up and smoosh the meat back out flat again. Repeat this twice more until all the seasoning mix is blended into the meat. If you hands aren''''t getting chilled the meat isn''''t cold enough. If your hands are greasy you need to be more careful handling meat. Put the meat mixture into the refigerator for at least an hour, overnight is better. Mix the bag and additional time or two during the wait time. When ready to form the jerky add the moist ingredient to the bag in a similar manner. Mix thoroughly again. If you are working stowly and wish to keep the meal chilled blend in 1/4 to 1/2 cup of finely crushed ice. This will chill the meat and make the mixture a bit more viscous. Now place about a cup in a pastry bag or "Jerky Shooter" with a wide flat tip. Squeeze out the mixture onto a cookie sheet or the screens of your dehydrator. Uniform thickness is important, uniform length doesn''t matter. Run this in the dehydrator for about 8 hours until firm and "leathery". If you have access to a smoker you can dry it in smoke for an improved flavor. Alternatively this can be oven dried at about 200F. for several hours. Leave the oven door slightly open to vent the mousture out. Makes about 24 (6-8 inch) strips. Serving is one strip. You can adjust the levels of pepper to your own taste. I keep some of this in Continue reading >>

10 Best Type 2 Diabetes Snacks

10 Best Type 2 Diabetes Snacks

Healthy Combinations Ready in Minutes When you have type 2 diabetes, a smart strategy for controlling your blood sugar levels is to think of snacks as miniature versions of meals and plan your carbs accordingly. Snacks with a good mix of protein, fat, and fiber will help keep hunger at bay and your blood sugar on an even keel throughout the day. "Since a meal should include 45 to 60 grams of carbohydrates, a snack should have around 15 to 20 grams," says Katherine Basbaum, MS, RD, a clinical dietitian in the Cardiology and Cardiac Rehabilitation departments at University of Virginia Health System in Charlottesville. By the same token, she says, fill your snack plate the same way you would for a regular meal. That means half should be non-starchy vegetables, one-quarter should be lean protein, and one-quarter a starchy carb. Here are 10 terrific options for healthy diabetes snacks. Continue reading >>

We are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliates sites. Heres a quick and easyground beef jerky recipe that can be madewith or without a jerky gun. Simply season the meat, press into thin strips, then dehydrate. A perfect low carb snack! We all know that meat is a perfect low carb keto snack because it has zero carbs. However, most commercially prepared beef jerky is prepared with marinades using sugar so carbs can add up. We love homemade jerky, but hate the time it takes to slice and soak in marinade. Thats why we make ground meat jerky now. Its so quick and easy to prepare! In this post, Ill show you the method used for my ground beef jerky recipe. Its really easy to do and you dont need any special tools or equipment. My husband is a serious deer hunter and his favorite way to eat the meat is venison jerky . We used to spend hours slicing up the meat for jerky. It was so time consuming that I rarely made jerky more than once or twice a year. We grind up most of the meat because I prefer eating venison ground. So, I came up with this ground beef jerky recipe to make our own ground venison jerky. The method uses a dry seasoning blend that requires no slicing or marinating. This saves tons of time when it comes to making jerky! Now, I dont mind making jerky every few weeks. It literally takes less than a half hour to mix the meat with seasoning and lay it out on trays. The time it takes to dry in my dehydrator is less than 8 hours. So its easily started in the morning and enjoyed in the afternoon! Continue reading >>

Salami Jerky Snack | Diatribe

Salami Jerky Snack | Diatribe

I initially called these salamichips, but the truth is that theyre more crispy-chewy than straight-up crisp: kind of like beef jerky and just as addictively, salty, meaty, and delicious. Plus, one serving has about 6 grams of protein, which is pretty good. You will make some for your kids (or your own) lunchbox, but then you will eat them all and you will have to make some more. Be sure to experiment with different kinds of salami to figure out what you like best. 4 ounces thinly sliced salami (ideally something Italian and/or dry-ish) Heat the oven to 350 and line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper for easy cleanup. Arrange the salami on the sheet so that its not overlapping, and bake until its just barely beginning to brown and the edges are curling up, around 12-15 minutes. Cool on a paper-towel lined plate, then blot with another paper towel. Eat right away (I like to dip them in a blob of yellow mustard), or store the cooled chips in a zipper-lock bag in the refrigerator. You should keep them in the fridge, but also know that its fine to keep them at room temperature for a couple hours, if youre bringing them to snack on at work or school. Variation:Im lazy, so I mostly make these in the microwave, but its kind of a trial-and- error proposition: Arrange non-overlapping slices of salami on a paper towel on a plate (I do about 4 at a time), cover with another paper towel, and microwave until the salami just starting to brown, around 30-45 seconds. The chips will crisp more as they cool. Catherine loves to write about food and feeding people.

The Best And Worst Beef Jerkyranked!

The Best And Worst Beef Jerkyranked!

Most of us know jerky as a gas station junk food loaded with tons of sodium, nitrites, MSG and ingredients that look like theyd be found in a chemistry lab. Most of us know jerky as a gas station junk food loaded with tons of sodium, nitrites, MSG and ingredients that look like theyd be found in a chemistry lab. But theres no reason jerky should only be a gas station snack. When you need metabolism-revving, hunger-satisfying protein after a workoutor just a healthy snack on the roadbeef jerky is a great go-to. The drying process is beneficial in two ways: it requires getting rid of excess fat (as it could go bad without refrigeration) so youre left with a low-fat product, and the water lost concentrates the protein in the meat to nearly double its amount in the same portion of uncured meat. As the all-natural, grass-fed beef trend converges with the emerging artisanal product market, athletes, and health-conscious snackers are turning to jerky as a satiating alternative to munchies like chips or bars without being restricted to additive-laden gas station products. To separate themselves from the jerkies of the past, many brands claim they dont contain added nitrites or MSG , but that doesnt necessarily mean the jerky is nitrite- or MSG-free. Cured meats contain sodium nitrates and nitrites to make the meat look appealing, preserve it, and keep it free of harmful bacteria. Natural sources like celery powder can also be used and still allow a product to claim All Natural as well as No Nitrites Added. Lisa Moskovitz, RD, CDN, explains, Whether its the synthetic version or from celery powder, its basically the same thing. She also explained theres still no verdict on whether nitrites are harmful or safe. In this case, we prefer the undebated alternative: instead of chemica Continue reading >>
