What is Lorissa’s Kitchen?

Driven by a desire to provide real food crafted for a full life, Lorissa’s Kitchen makes delicious protein snacks that fit into busy schedules. Lorissa’s Kitchen products are made with 100 percent grass-fed beef or chicken raised without antibiotics. All of which are free from added growth hormones, MSG, nitrites, and are gluten free.

Our steak strips and chicken cuts are similar to jerky yet contain higher moisture for a more tender bite. They come in four delicious flavors: Korean Barbeque Beef, Original Beef, Ginger Teriyaki Chicken, and Szechuan Peppercorn Beef. Our grass-fed beef sticks come in three flavors: Original, Smokey Sweet, and Jalapeño.

Who is Lorissa?

Lorissa Link created the Lorissa’s Kitchen brand! She’s like so many women today, busy juggling a career and a family. No matter how busy her days get, she enjoys the true satisfaction of being there fully for each moment, and real food helps make that happen because it satisfies the body, mind, heart, and soul. When she founded the brand, Lorissa set out to create delicious, healthy snacks she could take anywhere and keep her family well nourished, without sacrificing the quality and responsible ingredients she cares about.

What is the Lorissa’s Kitchen story?

The story begins in the kitchen and around the table, where families bond over sharing meals and building traditions. At Lorissa’s Kitchen, these bonds are generations in the making.

Lorissa Link is married to Troy Link, and Troy’s father is Jack Link, who created his own jerky and other protein snacks using his great-grandfather’s recipes. Jack Link’s Protein Snacks is the largest meat snack business in the world, and when Lorissa married Troy, the proud legacy of crafting delicious snacks continued.

Lorissa wanted a healthy protein snack to enjoy on the go for both herself, and her kids. Thus, Lorissa’s Kitchen. Lorissa brought this new brand to life with clean-ingredient, responsibly raised protein snacks to help everyone stay nourished and satisfied throughout the day.

What makes Lorissa’s Kitchen different?

Our busy bodies need nutritious food, our curious minds want to seek out smart choices, and our conscience is committed to things being done right. We have a simple mission: to make wholesome snacking easier, with nourishment that’s crafted to fit the pace of your day.

How are Lorissa’s Kitchen strips and cuts different than traditional jerky?

Everyone’s suffered through tough, stringy traditional jerky. That’s not Lorissa’s Kitchen. Our premium strips and cuts have a higher moisture content than jerky, giving them a much more tender bite. Slow smoking contributes to the exceptional tenderness and is the foundation for carefully balanced flavor profiles.

What is grass-fed beef and why is it important?

Grass-fed means the cattle we use have a forage-based diet. It’s a practice that’s good for both animal well-being and for managing natural resources because grass-fed means animals are grazing freely on open pastures. Grass-fed cattle are more and more common around the globe today. The health benefits of grass-fed beef include more cancer-fighting conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), desirable fatty acids like omega-3s, and nutrients like vitamin D, magnesium, and potassium.
