The Best Snack Pairs for Your T.O.P. Chops Jerky
What makes a perfect snack? It depends on who you are and what your preferences are, but there are some perfect pairings that nobody will turn down once their stomach starts rumbling.
Original Jerky and Cheddar Cheese
Beef and cheese is a pairing that has been popular for as long as cows have given milk. The sharp, soft taste of cheese pairs well with the salty, thicker taste of the meat.
Teriyaki and Sunflower Seeds
Since teriyaki sauce makes the jerky taste a bit sweeter than the typical meat, it's a good idea to pair it with a salty flavoring in order to balance it out. Sunflower seeds are a great choice for any jerky snack but do well with teriyaki and don't overpower the flavor.
Sweet & Spicy and Tortilla Chips
Just like tortilla chips go great with a spicy salsa, they do very well with a spicy type of jerky. The consistency of crunchy tortilla chips also serves as a contrast to the chewier meat, making you feel as if you've got an entire meal in your mouth with just one handful.
Red Chili Pepper and Chocolate
For a real kick in your taste buds, combine the spicy red chili flavoring with dark chocolate. Dark chocolate creates a rich contrast to the heat of the jerky: while meat and chocolate may not exactly sound like a match made in heaven, it's definitely a snack you've got to try to believe.
