Paleo BBQ Beef Jerky

When you hear the word beef jerky, what do you think of? Personally I think about gas station snacks with an everlasting shelf life. This is not the case for my Paleo BBQ Beef Jerky. It is not made with soy, sugar and other additives! You wouldn’t believe how many beef jerkies don’t contain any beef at all. 

Recently my family and I went on a trip to Disney World. We knew we wouldn’t be able to cook and realized we would need some Paleo snacks to munch on! We aren’t big snackers besides nuts and fruit, so we had to think about what we could bring. Paleo Beef Jerky seemed like a good choice.

My grandmother and my dad had bought a dehydrator within the past year, and I finally got to put it to use! My grandmother has used it quite often for veggies and other things, so she showed me how simple it is to use. If you don’t have a dehydrator you can make this jerky in your oven on the lowest temp setting!

Since it’s nearly impossible to find paleo BBQ sauce at stores, it’s best to keep a good stock of this sauce, and use it for all of your grilling needs.

  4. […] 6. Paleo BBQ Beef Jerky It’s awesome that they thought to add BBQ flavor to beef jerky, as it just makes total sense. The one thing that you’ll notice is that they’ve taken pains to make sure that even the barbecue sauce is Paleo friendly. They are using flank steak, cut extra thin so that this will have a nice leathery feel to it. The way you cut your steak up will greatly determine the kind of jerky you end up with. If you want thin strips like they’ve done here, you’ll need to cut it thin as they suggest. If you want heartier pieces you can make thicker cuts but it will add to the dehydration time. […]
