The next review on PREVAIL Jerky will focus on a 2.25 ounce/64 gram bag of their original flavored 100% grass-fed beef jerky. This flavor is described as using Sichuan peppercorns and lemongrass to give a sweet and tangy zest followed by a subtle tingling sensation that keeps you wanting more. The jerky was graciously submitted for review by Co-Founder & Chief Creative Manager, Ashley Kohn.
100% Grass-Fed Beef and Grass Finished Beef, Water, Organic Coconut Sugar, Organic Coconut Aminos (Organic Coconut Sap, Sea Salt), Organic Coconut Vinegar, Sea Salt, Organic Sichuan Peppercorns, Organic Matcha Tea, Organic Lemongrass.
The beef used is 100% grass-fed beef sourced from Supply Background located in New Zealand. As a result, the cattle are guaranteed to have free range access to roam about. The beef is guaranteed to have been raised ethically, meaning not administered growth hormones or additional antibiotics. As a result, the highest ingredient rating possible is Excellent (10/10).
The liquid marinade is comprised of water, healthy organic coconut aminos, and healthy organic coconut vinegar.
There are some healthy ingredients added such as organic Sichuan peppercorns, organic matcha tea, and organic lemongrass.
The sugar level is at the acceptable upper limit of 4 grams of sugar per 28 grams of jerky for a sweet based flavor. Coconut sugar is used that has the lowest glycemic index for types of sugars. The salt level is respectable at 280mg of salt per 28 grams of jerky, which uses healthy minimally processed sea salt.
This jerky qualifies to have no sodium nitrite, or any other similar unhealthy preservative. With more kudos to Prevail Jerky, this jerky has no MSG added.

PREVAIL JERKY – LEMONGRASS 100% GRASS-FED BEEF JERKY
Written by guest jerky reviewer Paul Rekker
When I open the bag, I smell very little, if anything. The jerky is between small to medium in size, and they are sliced quite thin. The jerky is soft and chewy, and it leaves no oily residue on your fingers.
The first flavors I encounter are salt, sweet, pepper, garlic, and a lemon flavor.
Hmmm, I’m at a bit of a loss for words. There is nothing to the flavor to make me diss it, but there is nothing evident enough to praise it. I’m feeling a bit ambivalent here. The jerky is not even remotely grabbing me.
The lemon flavor is not enough to get me to wax poetic about it. Sorry guys, I’m afraid my review will not resonate with you guys or the jerky maker for that matter. I’ll be generous and rate it at a 7/10, but I believe the review is reading more like a 5/10.
Here is what Stéphane had to say: “The Prevail Lemongrass Beef Jerky is simple and tasty in its flavor. The texture is also delightful and enjoyable. The jerky delivers on some herbal and fresh flavorful notes, and it is reminiscent of Thai influence.”
“This jerky has subtle, calming, and soothing characteristics, and that’s just fine by me. I believe the Prevail Lemongrass Beef Jerky delivers on its promise.”
“As a side note, I’d probably like to taste more of a peppery taste, as it would bring added depth and richness to its flavor profile. I’d rate this jerky 9/10 Taste Rating.”
Here is what Mark had to say about this lemongrass beef jerky flavor from PREVAIL Jerky: “Thanks Paul and Stéphane for the great taste reviews. I am definitely in Paul’s camp here in regards to this lemongrass flavor. While the level of lemon is decent, there is nothing to capture my attention with this flavor. Stéphane is correct in his suggestion of adding more Sichuan peppercorns to spruce up this flavor. The beef has a sort of processed taste.”
In lieu of COVID-19, the Group of Seven is down to four people for this review. For the record, Mark M. was also at a 9 taste rating. Based on all the feedback, I believe that a Decent (7/10) taste rating is warranted here.”
This 2.25 ounce/64 gram bag of jerky sells online for $7.99. That works out to $3.55 an ounce, which barely rates as an expensive price for 100% grass-fed beef.
This blue resealable plastic bag has everything imprinted on the bag both on the front and back.
