Jedidiah's Jerky is a brand that we reviewed before (read the reviews here). Some time ago, they reintroduced their line of jerky with new recipes and new branding, and moved their headquarters to Laughlin, NV to Beatty, NV. Jedidiah's Jerky also has since opened up a chain of beef jerky stores called, "Jed's Jerky" throughout Nevada and California.
This "Lemon Peppered" jerky doesn't come with any additional description or claims.
Beef brisket, gluten free reduced sodium tamari soy sauce, brown sugar, lemon juice, black pepper, granulated garlic
The first flavor I pick up on the tongue is a sweetness and light salt. The black pepper is faintly noticeable. The chewing brings on some soy sauce, with a touch of tanginess, and a little bit more black pepper.
For being labeled, "Lemon Peppered", it holds up somewhat. There's definitely a black pepper flavor in this, with a freshly cracked sharpness and a bit of bite. The lemon, however, is hard to find. It does show up with a light tanginess and touches of fruit, but nothing uniquely lemon or citrusy. Towards the end of chewing, the natural meat flavors come out a little.
Otherwise, the primary taste profile is that of a soy sauce with a noticeable sweet, highlighted with black pepper, and a tangy chew.
The meat consistency is excellent for beef brisket jerky. It's quite soft and tender, and very meaty. There's only light stringiness found. The chewing texture feels like real meat, just quite soft and tender. Some strips are very soft and tend to chew mushy, but there are some pieces more dry and chewy. Some pieces have bits of fat on them, which adds some flavor.
This Lemon Peppered Beef Brisket Jerky from Jedidiah's offers a tangy chewing marked with a sweetend soy sauce and a black pepper bite. It's very soft and tender, almost like marinated steak cooked medium rare. While I don't really pick up a unique lemon note, it has a tanginess and mild fruity character that one might associate with lemon. Otherwise, the moist, tender chewing really brings out the black pepper and the savory marinade. Think of this more like a tender, moist, tangy, black peppered jerky.
