Beef Jerky

Beef jerky is a meat product that uses the lean cut of the meat, salted, and then dried. It’s often described as “long thin strips of dried beef,” says the Food Reference website. According to the Oklahoma beef jerky makers and online seller, Jerky.com, the name is derived from the word “ch’arki,” which means “dried meat” in the Quechuan language of the Incas. In turn, the Spanish derived from it the “charqui.”
