Whilst living in S.A. Stefan and the girls used to enjoy a meat snack from the local garage.
The snack was thin rounds of meat, looking like the consistency of minced beef dried - something like hamburger patties with the water taken out of them!
Stefan was determined to give it a go, and so we came up with our own recipe as it developed.
Here is what we used for this recipe:
850g - 1kg of minced beef
3 Garlic Cloves chopped fine
5 Tbsp Worchester Sauce
2 tsp Herbed Salt
1 pinch sea salt
1 tsp ground pepper
1 tsp BBQ spice
2 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
In a bowl, mix all the ingredients really well.
Then using a patty press, press out the beef mix into even hamburger patties.
Once divided, place into the dehydrator and allow to dry at 70°C for roughly 8 hours or until well-dired.
As soon as they are done, pack them up and hide them, otherwise if your family is anything like ours, they will be devoured in roughly 15 minutes flat :)
