Chewy Jerky Rub

Looking for something as spicy as you are?

This super-simple jerky rub is perfection for that hammered-down inexpensive thin-sliced steaks with less fat on them (fat goes rancid). Simply hammer the meat, toss this rub in a bag, and go to town!
The rub adds not only a lot of flavor, but a ton of color, too. It’s just as fun to eat as it is to look at.

  1. My husband and I love jerky we are going to try this one tonight or this weekend. Heck I have everything but the meat at home to make it. What kind of steak did you use? Skirt steak? Also can you tell me where the carbs are coming from? Is it the limes or do the seasonings have that many carbs in them? Thanks for the great recipe!!!
