Some of my favorite family stories are of my grandmother's childhood during World War II. Her family would make the most appetizing dishes out of minimally preserved/canned ingredients. It's just the cutest thing when she bites into Jerky Chews and asks, "Can I soak it in water and cook you a meal?"
I would love a meal made from Jerky Chews, especially when I have no other protein left in the house. I got so busy that I forgot to place an order with Brandon Natural Beef; check them out Bay Area, Ca, as they have tongue and other awesome cuts available this season.
But for now, I will scavenge for ingredients I already have and combine them with my 100% grass-fed beef source - Jerky Chews (also made from Brandon Natural Beef) - Original with Lemon flavor to be precise.
Here's a simple recipe you can enjoy while camping or at home:
- 1 cup chopped jerky (2oz bag of Jerky Chews)
- 1 can of diced tomatoes (TJ's Organic Diced & Fire Roasted is tasty)
- 3 farm-fresh eggs (I used duck eggs thanks to the Mountain View farmers market lady who sells bigger-yolk duck eggs for the price of chicken eggs)
- 2 tablespoons butter
- Sea salt to taste (optional)
Soak the chopped jerky in water overnight. Heat the pastured butter in a skillet. Squeeze out the moisture from jerky and add it to the skillet along with tomatoes and salt. Cook for a few minutes and then stir in whisked eggs. Continue to stir very slowly over low heat and you got yourself scrambled eggs with delicious chews.
