Really Dry Jerky - Can It Be Hydrated?

Yea, it is a store bought brand so say what you will, but I do enjoy it. But my question is, is there a way to hydrate jerky so it has some moisture content? I occasionally run into some that makes balsa wood look like a wet noodle.

Any input is appreciated.

Do you want a recipe?

There is a dish, Northern Mexico fare, called "Caldillo". My father loved it. It´s essentially a vegetable soup, spicy, with rehydrated jerky. I don´t like it personally but here you won´t find a restaurant that does not serve it.

Let me know.

I have a friend that likes to jerk his meat.
He's made jerky beef, jerky pork, jerky chicken and jerky buffalo. His wasn't as dry as the story bought jerky.

LMAO..........Dry jerky ? The whole point of jerky is to get rid of the water, partly to reduce the weight, and partly to make it "keep"; if you lay meat in the sun, it will rot; (as I'm sure you already know); take all the water out.....and it will "keep" MUCH longer; (you "re-hydrate" it when you put it in your mouth to eat it) ( Do you have an unusually dry mouth ? )
Maybe try drinking a little beer first, to get your "juices flowing" ? ( Personally, I always feel like drinking a glass of ruby-red grapefruit juice immediately after eating jerky.)

True, but you don't want to reduce it to 0%. If that happens then you could frame a picture with it.

Love jerky, which is another food you can't get in Norway.

Have you considered placing it in a bowl or a zip-lock bag containing wine, broth or even plain water so that it is completely immersed. Let it stand for a while. The wine or broth that you soak it in can be re-used if you don't want to throw it away. Alternatively, to hurry things up a bit use boiling water instead.

Yes, thanks indeed. I wasn't aware it could be that simple. Then again, it's just modifying the process in reverse, so....

I suspect you have more than one friend who enjoys jerking his meat. As a former resident of the Bay Area, I suspect you probably have quite a few who quite enjoy jerking each other's meat as well. (Really, how has this one slipped by everyone here?)

Now, as for preparing dried foodstuffs, I agree with the homemade approach. Buffalo works really well. The fat content is lower than beef so it doesn't get too greasy, but high enough that it doesn't get brittle, like pork and chicken tend to.

Any of you who are into multi-day backpacking should try out some jerky next time, if you haven't. Great pick-me-up and a lightweight protein source.
