Filet Mignon Beef Jerky is the Best Kind of Beef Jerky

filet mignon beef jerky three jerks
Beef jerky is a staple of the manly diet. It’s simple, nutritious, fulfilling, and doesn’t go bad if you leave it out for a couple days. It’s also one of the few types of meat you can eat with your bare hands without getting looked at like you’re some sort of deranged caveman. It might just be the manliest food ever created. There’s just something so primal and satisfying about ripping a chunk of meat apart with your teeth, and we can’t get enough of it.

We love jerky, but for too long we’ve been forced to live under the tyrannical reign of Jack Links and Oberto – ruthless monarchs of meat who feed us sub-par ingredients processed with all sorts of nitrites, MSG, and artificial flavors. It’s time for something different.

Three Jerks takes an entirely different approach to beef jerky. Rather than haphazardly stuffing some mechanically processed meat into a dehydrator, these guys start with one of the best cuts you can find on a cow: the lean, tender, and supremely succulent filet mignon.

Next, they take the meat and braise it using the “slow and low” method before it’s sent into the dehydrator. This process gives the finished product a delightfully tender texture – much more enjoyable than the leathery, sinewy texture you get with other jerky.

And then there’s the flavors. Gone are the days of being confined to the paltry tastes of original, teriyaki, and peppered: Three Jerks offers flavors like Memphis BBQ and Chipotle Adobo — as well as an “Original” flavor that tastes unlike any jerky you’ve ever eaten. Word on the street is that they’ve got some new stuff in the pipeline, too.

Get your hands on a three-pack at — you won’t be disappointed.

Corned beef and cabbage: Learn how to make this St. Patrick’s Day classic
It isn't St. Patrick's Day without a cold pint and a big plate of corned beef and cabbage
best corned beef and cabbage recipe 2

As St. Patrick's Day rolls around again, many of us will dutifully trudge to the grocery store, pick up our corned beef from the bulk display, head home and boil that piece of meat to death in the name of 'tradition.' Many of us are guilty of going through the motions of culinary traditions without giving a second thought to whether or not they actually taste good (we're looking at you, fruitcake). But in the case of corned beef, this is a real travesty, because this is a dish that, when done properly, is exquisitely delicious. One so good, in fact, that, if we knew better, would be on a weekly rotation, and not just an annual one.

Many corned beef and cabbage recipes out there call for a braise, which makes sense. Corned beef is most often a brisket cut, which requires low and slow cooking to ensure a tender result. Too often, though, those braises turn out flabby, lifeless, flavorless pieces of meat that we only feel obligated to eat because St. Patrick told us to. Let's put an end to that here and now. This is how to cook corned beef and cabbage the right way.

Dr. Noel Abood, owner and director of Solon Spine & Wellness Center in Ohio, shared with us his expert advice on the top foods one should be eating for ultimate muscle growth.

4 delicious casserole recipes to try right now (it’s the comfort food you need)
These casserole recipes are classics for a reason

Casseroles. How does one describe a casserole? For some, it conjures up the image of mothers placing a big pan of something or other on the table for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. For others, it's comfort food that is loaded with different ingredients. Even yet, others may not even realize what a casserole is. That's why we had to do a little digging.

Turns out, casseroles are more than that tuna noodle casserole some of us terrifyingly remember, or maybe it's that green bean casserole that seems to make its way to the Thanksgiving or Christmas table. Not many people use the word casserole anymore but make no mistake, they still exist – they just go by another name.
