Jerky is a finely chopped lean meat strip, which is dehydrated to prevent it from getting rotten so that it can be kept fresh for a longer time.
You'll find commercially produced jerky in shops all around, but many of them are filled with preservatives, added sugar, and even gluten! The lesser the presence of any of these ingredients, the higher the price becomes.
It is a lot safer for you and your family to eat homemade jerky. They are also cheaper to make rather than buying commercially produced ones.
Although jerky can be made out of almost any meat, here we will only be discussing how to make beef jerky.
