What’s even more exciting is that because we have such a variety of different flavors, using the same recipe with the different flavors of craft beef jerky results in brand new experience for your taste buds.
Craft Beef Jerky & Zoodles Pasta
20 min. | 2 servings
If you are not familiar with “zoodles” it’s simply zucchini instead of noodles. You can sometimes buy these at your local grocery store, but making them is pretty easy too. We’ll include the instructions in this recipe, which can obviously be skipped if you opt to buy them pre-cut.
- 1 tbsp of olive oil
- 1/2 cup of your favorite jerky, cut into small pieces
- 1/4 cup yellow onion, diced
- 2 tsp garlic, thinly sliced
- 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper (optional)
- 2 cups zoodles
- 1/2 cup white wine
- 2 cups fresh baby spinach
- 1/8 cup chopped up sun-dried tomatoes
- 2 tbsp parmesan cheese, shredded (optional)
You’ll need one medium-sized zucchini per person. Cut the zucchini in half lengthwise. Remove the seeds with a spoon and slice the halves very thinly with a potato peeler or use a spiralizer. Add to boiling water for 1 minute.
Heat olive oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add jerky, onion, garlic, and red pepper. Cook 3 to 5 minutes or until beef jerky is tender.
Add cooked zoodles to skillet. Cook 1 to 2 minutes until heated through.
Add wine. Cook 4 minutes until liquid is almost evaporated. Remove from heat.
Add spinach. Add sun-dried tomatoes. Toss mixture until spinach is slightly wilted. Garnish with parmesan cheese.
Craft beef jerky and zoodles pasta is a great way to enjoy as both a main dish or side dish. It is both flavorful and low-carb and perfect for those that are part of the Keto lifestyle. If zucchini isn’t something you enjoy, we might recommend a few alternatives including Spaghetti Squash or Shirataki noodles.
