The cut of meat is one of the most important factors in making
jerky. Most companies use cheap cuts of meat either sliced
thin or chopped and formed into strips. Longhorn Jerky uses

hand-carved by a human, not machine-made. The meat is then
soaked (under pressure) with a special marinade, consisting
of the finest spices and sauces. The recipe for the marinade
is a closely-guarded secret, and with good reason.
is the nutritional value of Longhorn Jerky?
Longhorn Jerky is almost entirely made of quality protein.
Very little fat or calories are present in a serving. The
