PJ's Beef Steak and traditional beef jerky share a common ingredient doesn't mean they're the same. Like Kim Kardashian, one is gluten free and all natural ... um, check that. Kim is just gluten free.
PJ's is produced by Knauss Foods, founded in 1902 as a local butcher shop in Quakertown. Knauss is the largest producer of dried beef sold in the United States. “We live in a culture where many of us are eating on the run. But it’s not easy for someone with celiac disease to find healthy snacks,” says CEO Joe Bucara. “We make PJ’s Beef Steak snacks gluten free by using organic tamari soy sauce.”
slices make for a high-protein snack, while the tenders can be added to dishes like omelets and chilis. Beyond the Original flavor, the Beef steak also comes in Teriyaki (my favorite) and Cracked Pepper (pastrami-like in taste).
The product is sold in 1 oz. and 3.25 oz. pouches at select Thriftway and Shop n Bag locations throughout Pennsylvania (Dublin, Richboro, Dresher, Philadelphia, Norristown and Lansdowne) and New Jersey (Pennington, Ewing, Hamilton and Whitehouse Station). Through Friday, the company is offering an online special on two large pouches for $12 shipped. Samples will also be distributed at an autism awareness walk in Reading on Sunday and at Appetite for Awareness in Philadelphia on September 23.
