Pan's Mushroom jerky recipe: What makes it so special?

Savoury jerky is a popular snack and people all over the world devour it. However, most of the jerky is made out of beef and therefore is never eaten by vegetarians. So when the Shark Tank contestant Michael Pan came up with Pan’s mushroom jerky recipe, the Sharks went gaga over the idea.

Coming from a Buddhist family, Michael Pan has been a vegetarian throughout his life. However, once when he was in Malaysia, he tried a vegan jerky and loved it. So when he came back home, he tried to make jerky with vegetarian ingredients and succeeded.

Pan’s mushroom jerky allows vegans to enjoy eating jerky that tastes similar to beef jerky but is made out of mushrooms. On the show, Michael described that the texture of mushroom is good enough to make jerky and they are healthy too. Therefore, his idea of mushroom jerky was a success.
