Snack with Jerky: Best Jerky Recipes for You


You may have heard that jerky is a great snack item. Keep reading to know about different ways you can have them! 

Jerky is a meat snack, loaded with nutrients, that has been dehydrated and cooked to make it shelf-stable.


Beef jerky can last a long time without rotting since the moisture is removed from the meat. Jerky is a great on-the-go snack because of this quality.


The majority of jerky is marinated with a combination of flavors and liquid ingredients. The main ingredient of any dried meat product is the natural preservative, salt.

Best Jerky Recipes


Jerky can be used to cook fun and scrumptious dishes. Let's indulge in our best jerky recipes that will make your tastebuds want more!


Jerky Served on Charcuterie Board


While it's not for your typical charcuterie or snacking board, it's a terrific addition for a multitude of reasons. Jerky pairs nicely with other items due to the variety of flavor qualities. Jerky not only goes well with other foods, but it also has wonderful textures and nutritional profiles, giving it a distinct flavor that you'll love. Here's how we recommend serving your next jerky-inspired charcuterie:


     Garlic beef jerky — for a flavor boost that goes well with bread or crackers.


     Buy a block (or two) of cheese and cut it into pieces. You can also purchase pre-cut cubes to make your job easier!


     Almonds, peanuts, pistachios: the possibilities are unlimited when it comes to nuts.


     Dried fruit, such as raisins and cherries, gives a naturally sweet choice to your snack.

Jerky with Deviled Eggs


Another typical delicacy that can be improved with jerky is deviled eggs. You won't be bringing any leftovers home if you turn up at an event with a plate of jerky-topped deviled eggs!


If you do not have a go-to deviled egg recipe, try this one, which only calls for four ingredients: jerky, eggs, Dijon mustard and mayonnaise. Hard boil the eggs, then shell them after cooling. Each egg should be cut in half and the yolks scooped into a bowl. Toss the yolks with mayonnaise and Dijon mustard (plus salt and pepper to taste), then scoop back into the egg whites.


To add more taste and texture, top each deviled egg with nicely chopped jerky of your choice. Although most people use smoked paprika to top their deviled eggs, you can just use Bayou Boil beef jerky. Which is wrapped in a blend of paprika and other intriguing spices.


Meaty Omelet


You probably haven't considered eating jerky in the morning, but you should! When you replace the ham with jerky in meals at the start of the day, you'll feel more energized and fuller for longer, making you more prepared for the day ahead.


Jerky is perfect for delivering long-lasting energy because it contains a lot of protein in a small number of calories and only a little fat. Try adding jerky to an omelet with your favorite vegetables and cheeses to start your day. Steakhouse beef jerky is our favorite omelet.


This gives it a savory flavor, making it taste just like a filling steak omelet. Add some roasted onions, peppers, and mushrooms to the mix.

A Protein-Rich Salad


Jerky can be used as a substitute for bacon in almost any recipe. To take your regular bacon bits to another level, crumble jerky over a salad. Jerky has more protein and iron, is lower in fat, and has fewer calories than bacon. It also comes in a wide variety of flavors. So, if you're making a Southwestern salad, add some Honey Jalapeno beef jerky on top to complement the flavors.


Crumble some Teriyaki beef jerky into an Asian salad. Jerky comes in a variety of flavors that will go well with any salad. It's a simple addition to any salad recipe—just chop and mix your favorite vegetables with your preferred dressing, then chop, rip, or grate jerky pieces. So try out the best salad recipes you've got your hand on with some jerky in them and see how delicious they turn out!


Bloody Mary with Jerky


A Bloody Mary with jerky is a great drink to serve with any side dish. A Bloody Mary is typically garnished with bacon and celery. However, substituting it with jerky can significantly increase the flavor!


Spices like paprika, cayenne pepper, and others can be used to make a Bloody Mary. Because jerky contains a variety of spices, it can be used as a topping for your Bloody Mary. Your meal has just become a lot more interesting!


Jerky Soup or Soupy Jerky?


One of our best-loved ways is to utilize jerky as a source of protein in soup. Jerky can be added to any soup to make it more flavorful. It can improve any dish, including a robust stew, a fresh vegetable soup, and, sometimes even corn chowder.


Jerky can be added to any soup that calls for ham, beef, or even chicken. Make your absolute favourite soup recipe as usual, but rather than using your usual protein, cut some of your favorite jerkies. As Jerky comes in various tastes it can be used to accent a variety of soups.

Jerky with Brussels Sprouts


While brussels sprouts are one of America's least favorite vegetables, excellent jerky can turn them into something delicious, even the pickiest eaters will like. You can add bacon to this dish, but doing so negates the goal of eating this healthful food in the first place.


Jerky can be an amazing alternative. Instead of bacon, toss some jerky in the saucepan and use them. Here's how you can prepare this meal. Brussels sprouts should be sliced and placed on a baking pan. Drizzle olive oil over the top and season with salt and pepper. Preheat the oven to 400 °F and bake the baking sheet for 15 to 20 minutes.


Flip the brussels sprouts halfway through cooking and add your jerky of choice to the baking pan. They will be ready to serve when the color change to a golden brown.
