Interesting Brazilian Beef Stew Recipe
  Re: (...)
Got this from a chef friend of mine. She sent it to me when I told her of my jerky making (which I am enjoying). Figured I'd share it with you all The flavor is enhanced from the jerky which concentrates the beef flavors.

It does sound good except for one thing. Does that one pound of bacon go in raw? I don't think I would like it that way. Too much bacon fat for my taste. But, if it's cooked first, I would probably like it a lot.
