I’ve been very pleased at how easy and inexpensive it is to make our own jerky at home. We use a mixture of ground meat, seasonings and ‘cure’. You can use either ground beef or strips of steak to make jerky. But we decided to make wild-game jerky using venison and elk.
RancherMan keeps our chest freezer filled with wild hog meat. I’ve made many dishes with this lean, mild-tasting wild pork. Many of those recipes are listed below. (Although you could use commercial pork instead)
But recently we were preparing for our annual family reunion. We decided to serve pulled-pork sandwiches with some of this wild-hog meat. But RancherMan wanted to smoke it with pecan wood before shredding it for sandwiches. It turned out Aaaaaaaahhhhh-MAZING!
Poor-Man’s Steak (or stuffed hamburger) is ground meat stuffed with grilled onions, peppers & melted cheese served on fried potatoes & topped w/brown gravy. I like to add diced jalapenos to the mix for a spicy kick! This simple recipe is sure to bring rave reviews.
