Jerky – More Than Just a Snack

Talked to my son the other day and he told me of how he and his wife were using jerky in other recipes.  Have to say that never crossed my mind – but after doing some searching found out that jerky can be used in many different recipes with many different types of dishes.

For some recipes the jerky was chopped to the consistency of bacon bits; other called for larger ‘bite-sized’ pieces.  How you were going to use it would determine the size.  Smaller pieces when used as a topper, larger pieces when used in a recipe where the jerky can be re-hydrated.

Some of the recipes we found for using jerky as an ingredient included:

  • Stews
  • Soups
  • Cornbread
  • Pasta Salads
  • Added into dips
  • Eggs
  • Sauces
  • As a topper for baked potatoes

To get you started, here are a few recipes we found on the Internet that sounded pretty good.
