Tasting Kitchen Sweet Chili Habanero Beef Jerky
The Sweet Chili Habanero is a sweet and spicy blend that highlights the citrusy, fruity components of the Habanero pepper and doesn’t shy away from the heat. The addition of pineapple juice complements the fruity aromas of the Habanero and helps texturize the meat for a slightly softer chew. As always, our ultimate goal is to celebrate the natural meat flavors with complementary flavor pairings.
Whole cuts of beef are sliced and then marinated in a dry rub of dried habanero peppers, red chili peppers, and cane sugar. Pineapple juice is added to ensure proper coating of the marinade and then the meat is slow-cooked for a minimum of two and a half hours.
The first flavor to hit the palate is a bright fruit sweetness, almost tropical, that slowly accompanies the savory spice blend and the natural meat flavor of the 100% Angus beef. From there, the habanero heat slowly builds until it leaves you with an nice lingering burn, nothing overwhelming, but definitely present.
While we could have gone hotter with the Sweet Chili Habanero, we want to create balance between the sweet and spicy to create a snacking experience that will keep you coming back for more.
