The Old Fashioned line hasn't changed much in the past 85 years. An old family recipe, dating back to the 1920s, has been updated with all natural ingredients and a simplified process to create a product that celebrates the BEEF in beef jerky. It's what real beef jerky is all about! An all-natural spice blend featuring cracked black pepper and sea salt is rubbed into thick, cowboy-style cuts of beef then slow-cooked for a minimum of five hours. The thicker cut and reduced moisture highlights the cracked black pepper and sea salt framing the natural richness of the meat.
