Homemade Beef Jerky
I've always been a big fan of beef jerky. Since I got my own dehydrator I'm lucky enough to be able to make my own and I do quite a lot of experiments with different types of spices and marinades.
I normally use beef mince to make my jerky, as opposed to thinly sliced beef which is the normal way. Now that I got a Jerky Pistol it's even easier. You just fill the tube with mince, pull the trigger and it pushes out the mince in a neat fashion.
This particular batch has been marinated with chili powder and smoked paprika. Added to that was some pineapple chunks that I pulverized with my Bamix. Sounds like a weird combination but it works very nicely indeed.
