A Brief Introduction to Teriyaki Beef Jerky
If you’re going to consume insane amounts of teriyaki beef jerky, then you should at least educate yourself on what makes teriyaki beef jerky so magical. Magical enough to want to carry a crazy amount of teriyaki jerky around with you wherever you go, at least.
Teriyaki is the Japanese term for meat that has been marinated in teriyaki sauce, then traditionally broiled or grilled over coals. Nowadays, the word is used to describe any food marinated in or served with, a version of this as-yet defined sauce. Jeff’s Famous Teriyaki beef jerky, for instance, is a great example. Jeff says, “The most authentic teriyaki beef is made with a marinade from scratch, so if you look under an ingredient list and you see Teriyaki sauce as an ingredient; the flavor won’t likely taste as good as our Jeff’s Famous Sweet Teriyaki beef jerky.”
Continuing on with the lesson – Teriyaki sauce typically consists of four main components: soy sauce, sake (or mirin, if you’re taking it easy on the booze), sugar, and ginger. It’s more or less your basic Asian seasoning/marinade.
Now that we know the basics, are you interested in the history of Teriyaki? Us neither, but for the nerds who are… let’s explain!
How Did Teriyaki Jerky Become So Popular? The History of Teriyaki
For those who do care, the history of teriyaki sauce can be traced all the way back to early Japanese immigrants who settled on the wonderful shores of Hawaii. They created a distinctive marinade by using only local products like pineapple juice, and then blended it with soy sauce. They also went on to add other ingredients like brown sugar, cornstarch, garlic, mirin (rice wine) sake, and sugar. Thus, teriyaki sauce was born.
Teriyaki cooking methods have been used for centuries, and they all began in the Tokugawa (or Edo) period. During the Tokugawa shoguns dynasty (1603-1867), many changes in urbanization and agricultural methods ultimately led to the introduction of new ingredients and styles of cooking.
Yeah yeah, we get it. We’ll stop babbling on about the history and get on with what really matters – where’s the beef?
