Dundalk Dan's Awesome Beef Jerky - Sriracha

dundalk dans beef jerky
Dundalk Dan's Awesome Beef Jerky is a brand of Hard Working Foods, LLC based out of Baltimore, MD. It was started by Dan Dawes in 2013, the CEO of an Internet marketing firm with a passion for meat snacks.

Dundalk Dan's claims their jerky is made in small batches and hand trimmed, and then marinated for 3 days.

This "Sriracha" variety is made with Sriracha Sauce. According to Dundalk Dan's, "This one rates 4 out of 5 on the hot meter."

Ingredients

Beef, sriracha sauce, gluten free tamari soy sauce, rice vinegar, garlic powder, onion powder, spice

Review

The first flavor I pick up on the palate is the sriracha sauce, along with a noticeable soy sauce. Garlic is substantial, along with a tanginess in the chewing. There's a light natural meat flavor. A touch of heat is detected.

For being marketed as "Sriracha", the flavor delivers quite well. The first flavor I get is the sriracha, and it imparts its strong garlic flavor and vinegary tang. It even has a sriracha aroma too.

But it's not really that hot. On my personal heat scale, I'd rate this as "mild medium" (level 2 out of 5). It's a noticeable heat, but toned down low.

Otherwise, the primary taste profile is actually a blend of sriracha sauce and soy sauce, with a tangy bursts of strong garlic in the chewing. The saltiness remains low to moderate.

The meat consistency is mixed, seeing some slabs as quite lean, and others quite marbled. It's dry, but still tender enough for a good balance between easy eating and jerky chewiness. Once chewed down soft, it tends to have a steak-like chewing.

Verdict

This Sriracha beef jerky from Dundalk Dan's whips up an addicting flavor for those who love that famous Thai chili sauce, and also love lots of garlic. The sriracha flavor is well represented in this jerky, but carries along a savory balance from the soy sauce. The garlic just bursts out in each chew, and is probably what really makes this jerky pop. It's also a great meat consistency and chewing texture, giving you that meaty, steal-like feel, but being easy enough to chew and swallow so that you can keep feeding fresh pieces of jerky into your mouth.

Rating: Best
