  • Beef Jerky

    I started making homemade Beef jerky out of Carne Asada. I am having a hard time finding reliable nutritonal information on jerky. How would one figure out the nutritional content of say 1 oz of Carne Asada beef jerky?

    Weight it before and after?

      I'd do it like all other cooked meats. Weigh it before and roll with that.
      …Time is so precious….and you need to ask yourself, what are you going to do today but more importantly, you need to ask yourself – how are you going to do it?

          I like to round 1 oz. of cooked meat (in this case beef jerky) to 7 grams of protein.

              I think in this case, 1 oz of beef jerky would equate to more than 7g of protein because it has less water content than typical cooked meat.

              c-dawg, take a quantity of the beef that you know the nutritional content of, say 3oz. (uncooked), dehydrate it and weight it. The dehydrated beef will have the same (or very similar) protein content as the uncooked beef and you can use the ratio created from your test to gauge the nutritional content of your dehydrated beef. However, I would assume you will lose a little fat content through the dehydrating process. For example, lets say 3oz. of lean beef has 20g protein and 3 grams of fat and when dehydrated, yields 1oz. of dehydrated beef, well then you know that each 1oz. portion of the jerky equates to approx. 20g protein and probably a little less than 3g of fat.

                  I knew I liked this board for a reason. Thanks for the advice. Appreciate it.

                    someone link or explain how to make jerky. I didn't ever think of this. Does it actually taste good? are you telling me I can make beef jerky a replacement for something like ground beef? I don't believe it lol.

                    So instead of getting say 40g of protein from ground beef, I could get 40g of protein from home made jerky and that would be the same nutritional value?!

                    home made jerky either must taste like shit or I have been missing out.

                        home made jerky if done right, is great
                        Overtraining should be one of the lowest concerns. You should focus on optimal training.

                          Yup, I borrowed a dehydrator from my in-laws and have been making like 4 LB's of jerky for a week. It takes over night to marinade and about one night and half a day to dehydrate to the consistency I like.

                          That is the recipe I used. Although, it might have too much salt in it for you, but it taste amazing. Just search for other good marinades that suit your needs otherwise.

                            I imagine that homemade jerky, just like store bought, tastes shitty unless a lot of salt is added to it. Is there any good jerky out there without a ton of sodium in it?
