pork loin for jerky?


  • what flavor profile would you use I have never made jerky from from pork would my regular beef jerky marinade work or should I use something like waltons bold jerky seasoning

    rodneycaudill I have a couple of thoughts on this. First, your plan on using the loin is correct, the low fat content makes it a good choice for jerky. Since pork does not have as strong a taste as beef generally does I would imagine whatever seasoning you use is going to actually come through a little stronger than it would with beef. For example the Habanero Lime Snack Stick is not hot with Beef but if you use Pork it has a tendency to taste a little spicier.

    The most widely enjoyed Jerky Seasoning we sell is the Colorado or the Colorado Spicy. The Colorado is an excellent base seasoning and if you are looking to add something to get a specific taste this is the best one to start with, just make sure you do not add anything that already has salt. The colorado spicy is the colorado jerky seasoning with some extra pepper added for heat, it’s one of my favorites.

    However, I think a great choice is what you mentioned, the Bold Jerky should work nicely with pork, it has a strong flavor with just a little bit of heat and I think the slightly weaker flavor of pork vs beef will work in your favor here.

    If anyone else has a different opinion or an idea on what jerky to use let us know!

    Been using pork for jerky for a while now and love it. I get the boneless loin and trim the tenderloin out of it and use. I slice it a good 1/4 inch thick. It tends to shrink to half its thickness when done… I like a oriental flavor fresh garlic and ginger work well and puree a few habeneros for some heat. I do a wet maranade and let it set for 36 hrs. and try not to get it overdone.
