Pan’s Mushroom Jerky

pan's mushroom jerkyMichael Pan gives the Sharks a taste of Pan’s Mushroom Jerky, his vegan beef jerky substitute, in Shark Tank episode  1206. Pan is an electrical engineer by profession. He got his degree at the University of Illinois in 2001 and worked as an engineer in the auto industry for a number of years. When he went to visit family he never met before in Malaysia, his life and livelihood would change forever.

On that trip, he met family that were vegetarian Buddhist monks. They fed him all kinds of wonderful food, but what really caught his attention was dried mushrooms or mushroom jerky. Apparently, the recipe was in his family for years. Mushrooms are a good replacement for meat and a great source of vitamins, fiber, and antioxidants.  For several years after that trip, he experimented in his kitchen and perfected his mushroom jerky making skills.

In 2018, he took the plunge and started the business. It’s made with shiitake mushrooms and it’s vegan, high in fiber and vitamin D, paleo-friendly, Kosher, soy-free, gluten-free, and  it’s all organic. There are no preservatives either. Pan’s Mushroom Jerky comes in four flavors: Original, Zesty Thai (the # 1 seller),  Applewood BBQ and Salt & Pepper. A 2.2 ounce bag costs nine bucks, but when you buy the variety 4 pack on Amazon, it’s just $35. Pan has his jerky in over 500 stores nationwide, but no big box chains. He’d like a Shark’s help remedying that situation.
