[原創食譜 Original Recipe] 自製小食篇 - 自製五香牛展乾小食 (HOMEMADE SNACK – Beef shank Jerky in Chinese Style)

五香牛肉這小食,自小作者也很喜歡,但十多年已沒有再食,因為越來越貴了吧。

I love to eat beef jerky so much since childhood, however, it’s really expensive nowadays, so I have not been eaten this snack for more than 10 years already.

 

自有了風乾機後,作者開始研究其做法,重拾這小食的味道了。

However, since I bought this NIR dehydrator, I tried to make this snack at home, and hope to get this back in my life.

 

這個做法也適用於五香牛肉片/牛肉粒或咖哩牛肉片/牛肉粒的,請自行調節味道及風乾時間。

This method also applied for beef jerky slices and cubes, but please adjust the taste and dehydrating time by yourself.

 

材料  (Ingredients):

 

牛展 (beef shank) – 1 pc

 

鹵水汁 (Chinese Marinated sauce) [鹵水汁做法 : http://mykitchen.jessieshare.com/?p=262]

 

五香粉 (five spices powder) / 咖啡粉 (curry powder)

 

做法 (Method) :

 

1. 首先,把牛展的外筋膜切去。
First, trim off the outer skin of the beef shank.

 

2. 準備一個鍋,先把牛展汆水
Prepare a small pot, boil some water and let it cook for little while, then take out first

 

3. 然後準備壓力鍋,倒入鹵水汁,再放入牛展,水滾後,蓋上,煮1.5小時
Prepare pressure cooker, pour in the marinated sauce, then put the shank in and cook for 1.5 hours

 

4. 煮好後把牛展取出,放涼
After cooked, take out and let it cool down

 

5. 用保鮮紙包好,放入雪櫃4-6小時定型,然後切片
Use a plastic wrap and wrap it well, refrigerate it for 4-6 hours, then take out and cut into slices

 

6. 準備風乾機底盤,放上牛油紙,把牛展片平均地放上,灑上五香粉,風乾後就可以享用了。
Prepare hydrating tray, put a baking paper on the top, then put the beef slices, then coated with five spices powder, then dehydrate it, and enjoy.

 

  • Tips : 由於沒有防腐劑,不能存放多於一星期,建議一次不要做得太多並儘快食完。另外,如果讀者用牛肉代替牛展,請自行減去煮鹵水的時間。 Since there’s no preservation at all, so don’t make too much at a time and consume it as soon as possible, probably not more than a week. On the other hand, if you using beef collar, please minus the cooking time.

  • Tips 2 : 記得全程一定要用solar mode,這樣才可以做到低溫烘乾的效果。

  • Tips 3 : 如果喜歡全硬身而不脆口的做法,可以只用shade mode,而用壓力煲只煮1小時,不需要放入雪櫃,只是放涼後切片就可以進行風乾。
