This was a present from Junko's father. Taiwanese beef jerky. It was chewy, but not too hard, a little sweet, with a spicy after taste. It was too tough for the kids and Junko didn't like the taste. More for me. Never met a Kansan who turned down free beef jerky. Jerky is popular as a snack with beer and you can get it in any convenience store.
I remember when I was a kid, my mom would make big batches of beef jerky from brisket marinated in soy sauce. They would bake in the oven all day. They were soo good. She put them in a big coffee can for storage, but they wouldn't last but a few days. We couldn't stop eating them. This Taiwanese snack was ok, but doesn't hold a candle to Mom's.
