It’s not just jerky…it’s Shurky Jurky. “Refined for her, savored by him, adapted to you.”
Sort of a seductive tagline, eh? Especially for jerky!!! But, as you’ve probably figured out, this isn’t ordinary jerky! Shurky Jurky is made with free range meat, is 100% natural, gluten free, cooked from scratch, prepared without additives or preservatives, and is much lower in sodium than conventional jerky.
Shurky Jurky is a Portland based company, which is pretty awesome in my book. Portland is a health hub and home to lots of great natural companies, including one that can make great tasting, healthy jerky 😉
Shurky Jurky is truly an artisanal food product. Instead of buckets of iodized salt, Shurky Jurky uses coconut aminos and anchovy paste to awaken your salty taste buds. Pineapple adds a subtle sweetness, while an array of unique spices hit up your spicy and bitter receptors. The Shurky Jurky marinade is quite well rounded, and very unique. I think some of you might be a little thrown off by the flavor, but if you just give it some time, let it sit in your mouth, and really taste it, I think you’ll be a fan. It doesn’t taste like regular jerky, but that’s why I love it! It’s a nice change of pace and a great protein packed snack.
Shurky Jurky is an authentic rip and tear jerky. It’s quite thin, with some pieces being almost translucent. I like a thinner jerky. Overly chewy, thick jerky tends to get stuck in my teeth. Others, like my father and brother, prefer a thick jerky, and didn’t enjoy Shurky Jurky as much as I did. It’s, honestly, just a matter of personal preference.
You can order Shurky Jurky online in a variety of sizes AND a variety of meats. There’s even a jerky SUBSCRIPTION!!!! *GASP* Awesome, right? Go over to their website to learn more: shurkyjurky.com
