Why rely on a jerky slicer machine? This cured meat is characterized by a rather hard texture, which is why it is essential to use a professional tool to cut it easily and obtain precise, quality slices. An example? Manconi's top-of-the-line Kolossal Line slicers.
The characteristics of jerky meat
Jerky meat is a type of cured meat usually made from very lean beef; in fact, sirloin tends to be used to prepare this product. This factor is very important as the fat in the meat tends not to dry out like the lean parts, retains moisture and also leads to premature deterioration of the product.
Dried meat is characterized by its cutting into very thin slices, which are difficult to achieve unless one relies on the use of a suitable tool.
In fact, the ideal thickness of the slices should be about 0.5 to 1 cm, as this measure allows the maximum flavor of the meat to be perceived without the risk of it being too tough.
If you make slices that are too thin, in fact, the risk is that you will get an excessively dry meat, while if too thick, the result will be a product that is not dried properly.
How then to be sure to cut slices that are homogeneous but above all of the right thickness? With a quality jerky slicing machine, such as those offered by Manconi.
