GIA LAI DRIED BEEF
One-day-sunny-two-day-cloudy beef jerky is a delicious dish. It also has a very peculiar name. Not only this is a good talk-n-eat dish, this can be also a gift after a trip to the mountain region of Gia Lai.
The most important thing is to choose the right ingredients. The jerky must not be too tough to chew, so the beef has to be fresh, and the cow was not too old or too young that would make the best beef jerky.
The beef, after some prepared, will be cut into slices and then marinated with some salt, sauce, pepper, lemon grass, killer chili,… and put the beef slices under the sun. If the sun is weak, the beef will be dried by the coal fire but not a second day of sun dried.
When grilling the beef, it has to be turned many times to reach a brownish color. Too much time on the fire will make the meat dried and hard to chew. Use hand to handle the beef. There are also many type of sauces that can be used along with, especially one is the yellow-ant dip salt.
