Beef jerky is a type of dry beef. It has been used for 100 of years by drying the meat and consume at the time of need. In Indo-Pakistan region too people were used to dry their meat for future needs and they way they used to do is like drying clothes outside their homes or on the terrace. They used to have a big rope where they used to dry long strips of meat and once dry, they were consuming either by frying in oil or just cook on fire or stove. It is an ancient way of saving meat for later time. Now we have more advanced things available. I dry or dehydrate my meat on oven or in an airfryer. The benefits of drying in air-fryer are they are quicker and meat can be consumed as it is without frying further.
