Made from Solid Strips of Beef- quite tasty.
Every once in a long while I crave good jerky. It seems I have some illusive desire to find the perfect jerky. Convinced that there isn't such a thing as a perfect jerky I rarely purchase it. When I do it is usually an impulse buy and I am usually traveling. My last attempt at finding the Holy Grail of jerky found me with a large 3.5 ounce bag of **Pecos Bill's Honey BBQ Beef Jerky**. Made by Mirab-USA. Mirab is one of the world's largest jerky manufacturer.The package is inviting. Nice bright colors and well placed graphics of an old cowboy and a Beehive complete with adorable little flying bees caught my eye. On closer inspection I read that it is made from solid strips of beef and it claimed to be the **"World's Finest Beef Jerky"**. Sold! I took my item to the cashier and walked out a happy snacker- or so I thought.The **97% fat free** designation didn't seem to fit the jerky's description as some of the pieces still had deposits of fat in it. I found the jerky to be a bit on the gamy side but felt softer than most jerkys I've had. Actually, the **flavor was quite tasty**. The beef comes from Argentina and is then processed in the US. [Two of my sons lived in Uruguay and Venezuela for two years and say that South American beef is wonderful.] As with all jerky it makes for a good snack if you are traveling or camping. It requires no refrigeration and lasts a long time.**From the package:****Ingredients:** Beef, Water, Honey, Sugar, Salt, Brown Sugar, Maltodextrin, Smoke Flavor Powder, Tomato Powder, Chili Pepper Powder, Spices, Apple Cider Vinegar, Monosodium Glutamate, Citric Acid, Sodium Erythrobate, Sodium Tripolyphosphate, Onion Powder, Disodium Inosinate, Caramel Color , Sodium Nitrite.
