Astorga, León
The cows used for making this beef jerky are indigenous to the area and are between 6 and 12 years old. It is important to use old, fat cows to get the tastiest jerky that will stay tender after curing.
Made with whole cuts known as silverside, flank, topside and rump from the hindquarters.
The cuts are salted, washed and dried, then smoked for two weeks over holm oak fires and finally hung in natural drying rooms.
The natural drying rooms are in buildings with no air conditioning or heating. Windows open to the outdoors so the temperature and humidity will be the same as the area in general, which means natural, unaccelerated curing. The curing process lasts from 12 to 15 months, depending on the size of the cuts.
After 6 to 10 months they are coated with olive oil and lard, which provides natural protection from mites.

Product with the Protected Geographical Indication (P.G.I.) of “Cecina de León”.

Beef, salt, lard and olive oil.
Store in a cool, dry place (maximum 20ºC) or in the refrigerator. It will start drying out once the package has been opened, but keeping it in the original package and covering the cut area will slow the process (2 or 3 weeks). It is best not to eat the first slice, which is often whitish, because it may be dry.
In summer, keep in the refrigerator up to 30 days after opening.
Expiry date
Minimum 2 months after delivery.
Tasting note
Color: Dark reds ranging from cherry red to maroon with fat streaks
Taste and aroma: Slightly salted meat, intense taste, flavorful, smoky aromas.
Beef jerky is usually finely sliced and eaten raw. Some people add a few drops of olive oil and serve it on toast. It can also be used to enhance the flavor of many dishes, like salads, carpaccio, pasta and roasted vegetables.
Beef jerky is rich in protein (75% of dry extract) and very low in fat (less than 10%). The fat is very aromatic and finely marbled in the flesh.

The cecina comes in a cardboard box, vacuum packed (see photo).

Cecina de Leon review

I am a big lover of spanish jamon. But my wife likes dry cured beef. So i dcided to get some of it from your shop along with jamon. Im not a big lover of dryed beef, but have a good idea of taste and smell of it. So have to say that smell was not normal to the type of meet. It smelled like dead cow stuffed with chemicals to kill that smell. And taste wasn't any better. I never bougth perticular piece of meat before, but we tryed a lot of beef when we were at Spain. So i wasnt sure if that way it should be and i called to frend of mine. He thogth also that meat smell its rotten. So whole piece went in to the bin. Jamon and sausiges was as good as it could be. So im happy with that.I dont like to complain and write long crying letters to suppliers, so i decided just not to buy that kind of stuff from yours shop any more as i suspect you will tell me it is normal for dry cured beef. But as i said earlier i have tried a few different beefs before, and there is some difference.
Sorry for my opinion, but thats the bottom line: Jamon is good, Beef not eadable.
thanks, Andrej

Compro la Cecina da qualche anno e posso dire che è sempre squisita, sapore forte con affumicatura non troppo pesante, consigliata per chi ama i sapori decisi.

Buy the Cecina for a few years and I can say that it is always exquisite, strong flavor with smoky not too heavy, recommended for those who like strong flavors.

Cannot get enough of this when I buy it

It lasts about a week in our house, if that. Absolutely delicious! If you're thinking about it, don't, just buy some and treat yourself.
