Beef jerky

Jerky refers to thinly sliced and dried beef, and is the first choice among snacks. There are several types of beef jerky. The most common is jangpo, which has been kneaded and dried, and the rump is made as wide and long as possible to create a feeling of yukpot. Seasoned minced meat and dried pyeonpo can be easily damaged if made into large chunks. There is also posam, which is made like dumplings by adding pine nuts to thinly sliced beef pot.

Jerky is usually seasoned with soy sauce (jin soy sauce), but the one seasoned with salt is called yeompo. For jerky, it is prepared by thinly slicing the cheekbones, which are tender and low in oil. Of course, the taste of Korean beef is very good. American beef jerky is not only too thick and hard, but also bland, and Chinese beef jerky is soft and soft, but it is too sweet and has a unique antiseptic smell, so it is not suitable for Koreans.

Jerky is a precious food, so it was used a lot as a food in the past. Put the jangpo or a large knitted cloth with a green and red belt and put it together with the jujubes threaded on the thread. Pyeonpo is made with minced meat seasoned and made into two large, slender chunks, sprinkled with pine nut powder on the outside to dry.

There are two types of pyeonpo made with side dishes: jujube pyeonpo and chilbo pyeonpo. Jujube pyeonpo is minced meat seasoned and shaped to the size of a jujube egg, and one pine nut is put at the end. Chilbo pyeonpo is made into a flat round shape with a diameter of 4cm, and 7 pine nuts are pressed firmly on top. For Possam, season a wide spread of meat potsam, put it on a chopping board, place six or seven pine nuts, fold and stick the meat together, cut it into a half-moon shape, press the edges firmly to dry it. Drive deeply so that the pine nuts do not fall out during drying.

The history of beef jerky is quite old, so it is thought that they naturally learned that if leftover meat was hung on a high place during the primitive hunting era, it would be naturally dried and kept for a long time. In the Goryeo dynasty, Goryeodogyeong, it is written that jerky and fish were served on the table served to the envoy Seogeung of the Song Dynasty.

How to make good jerky

To make good jerky, you must first have good meat. When grilling meat, cut it in the opposite direction, but cut the jerky into 0.4cm thick slices.

The seasoning is very simple and consists of three ingredients: soy sauce (dark soy sauce), sugar, and pepper. In addition, honey, pear juice, ginger juice, etc. may be added, but it is better not to add green onion, garlic, sesame salt, or sesame oil. If you add a lot of seasoning, the taste changes, making it difficult to store for a long time.

To make jerky, first spread the beef jerky on a chopping board to remove the tendons and oil attached to the edges. Check the weight and accurately measure the ratio of 1 tablespoon (15 cc) of soy sauce per 100 g of meat, add half the amount of soy sauce (dark soy sauce) for sugar, and add pepper powder appropriately. If the liver is insufficient, the pho will be greasy and tasteless. If you use half of honey instead of sugar, it will be soft and fragrant after drying. In a large bowl, make a marinade by mixing soy sauce, sugar, honey, and pepper well, then remove each piece of beef patty and coat both sides sufficiently. Rub it with your hands and let it soak for about 30 minutes.

Wash and dry the marinated yukpot persimmons straight out on a sieve, and lay them out in a sunny and well-ventilated place. After a couple of hours, when the surface is dry, turn it over to dry. If left alone, the meat will stick to the sieve and the meat will tear if removed. In spring or autumn when the sun is shining and the wind is calm, it is almost dry in half a day. The dried jerky is spread out one by one, stacked one by one, wrapped in Korean paper, and then pressed with a stone for two days to correct the shape. If dried jerky is left outside, it will dry out and harden, and if it is wet, insects will form. In the past, they were wrapped in Korean paper and hung for storage, but now they can be kept fresh by putting them in a plastic bag, tying them tightly and putting them in the freezer.

Jerky must be grilled well for it to taste good. Lightly drizzle sesame oil on the front and back, place it on the grill and cook it over a long heat. At this time, apply a little sesame oil to the palm of your hand and rub the front and back sides of the jerky evenly, but do not apply too much. Cut the grilled beef jerky into bite-size pieces in a shell or ball shape, put it in a bowl, and sprinkle with pine nut powder. Sprinkling pine nut powder on the black jerky looks good and tastes good.
