Divine Bovine is everything we look for in a jerky: tender, melt-in-your-mouth beef with the added bonus of no nitrates, no preservatives, and no MSG. “Holy Cow It’s Terrific,” says the bag. We agree, and could not stop eating piece after piece until the aforementioned bag was empty.
This is not hard jerky; it does not give your jaws a workout. There is no smoke flavor, just sweet beefiness from brown sugar, pineapple juice and seasonings. It’s our kind of beef snack.
There are equally-yummy bacon, pork, and turkey jerkies.
So we’re naming Divine Bovine and friends our Top Pick Of The Week. Who are the “friends?”
Oh, how to choose from this embarrassment of jerky riches:
As the story goes, in a small village in southern Italy, there lived a butcher who loved to make jerky. He was known to his family and friends as Pops.
Pops experimented with different cuts of meats and seasonings and decided that the sweetest and most tender cut for beef jerky was brisket of beef.
Although brisket had never been used for jerky before, it created a unique blend of flavor and tenderness. Pops’ new jerky was a hit!
The tradition continues with Pops’ grandson, who lives in California. Thanks, buddy, for bringing such a divine jerky to the U.S.
A package of Divine Bovine is just the stocking stuffer we’d like.
We also like the idea of Divine Turkey as Thanksgiving party favors.
You can punch a hole in the top of the bag, thread a ribbon through, and tie a bow.
*“Except for that [MSG],” announces that bag, “which naturally occurs in soy sauce.”
