Overall Score: A

FLAVOR FACTOR: A

Chef’s Cut Real Jerky Original beef jerky is a great mixture of flavors without being overwhelmingly salty. You’ll get hints of horseradish and Worcestershire sauce to give it a little spice and compliment the smokiness. This is one of our favorite original-style flavors. Because the flavors seemed so balanced with a bit of heat, salt and sugar, we score Chef’s Cut Original beef jerky an A on the flavor factor.

TEXTURE FACTOR: B

They claim you’re getting premium, hand-picked beef cuts in every bag and I believe they deliver on that claim. The jerky pieces were larger than typical, but soft. The jerky was dry and not too oily. If you’re looking for jerky that won’t kill your jaw chewing it, I recommend Chef’s Cut; however, some of the pieces almost seemed too spongy. Since the density wasn’t quite right for us, we score Chef’s Cut Original beef jerky a B on the texture factor.

HEALTH FACTOR: A

Chef’s Cut Real Jerky Original beef jerky is gluten free, nitrite free, MSG free, and uses no artificial preservatives. It doesn’t have the lowest amount of sodium, but at 340mg per serving, it is in line with other major brands. Chef’s Cut jerky products are nutrition-conscious snacks with quality ingredients. We give Chef’s Cut Real Jerky Original beef jerky an A on the Health factor.
