Trader Joe's Sweet Sriracha Bacon Jerky Answers Our Uncured Prayers


A while back, everyone and their moms became really invested in candied sriracha bacon onion rings. The only downside was, now matter how delicious, the recipes actually took some time to make. While wandering purposefully through our local Trader Joe's, we discovered a curious bag of Sweet Sriracha Uncured Bacon Jerky.

It looks like this:



To our sriracha-coated glee, the jerky tasted phenomenal. It perfectly captures the magic of those sriracha rings, but with none of the kitchen mess. Sure, it's missing the onion bit, but was that really anyone's favorite part of the recipe?

The bacon jerky is made with a combination of sriracha-style sauce, honey, soy sauce, garlic, ginger and spices. One might wonder what the difference between cured and uncured meat could be. Essentially, uncured utilizes natural preservatives. It's still cured, they just call the process "uncured" for some reason.

You can find a bag for about $5.49 at your local Trader Joe's. It's a little costly, but what jerky isn't?
