Making Jerky wasn’t as hard as I expected. 1 ½ pounds thin sliced flank steak, 2 tsp salt, bunch of fresh ground pepper, garlic powder, then I used Italian seasonings with crushed red pepper. It didn’t take much to season it well. I’m glad I looked at recipes or I would have overdone it. Just rub it all in and put it in a dehydrator. (Or oven with door cracked open – not an option with a toddler) Fresh jerky is the best, not loaded with soy sauce, wheat, sugar or preservatives.
I had some spicy Mahi Mahi with grilled shrimp, veggies and rice at a restaurant. I’m trying to eat more fish. It was quite good. The next step is to learn how to cook it. Trout steamed in a steamer is tasty, and it’s harder to overcook fish in a steamer…I have trouble with overcooking fish. That’s about the only good way I know to cook fish.
I’m soooo tired. The baby is mostly over his stomach flu, but still grumpy. It’s been a long week.
