The yak supplies many dietary staples to the Tibetan people, so it’s hardly a surprise to discover that yak jerky holds a special place in the hearts of locals who enjoy this delicacy during Tibetan New Year celebrations. Rather than sun dried in the way that jerky is usually made, yak jerky is ‘freeze dried’ during winter months, allowing original flavors to be maintained during the process. Expect an unusual texture – like brittle dried wood that can be shredded. Dip the jerky in a spicy hot sauce to round out the experience. Definitely a choice for those who enjoy bold flavors!
