The tug-of-war battle between your mouth and a piece of Beef Jerky can be a hard snack to chew and swallow. The commercial brands tend to be too salty, dry, tough, unhealthy, leathery, and heavily preserved for a long shelf life. For around $50, you can purchase a dehydrator. It is well worth the effort to make it by hand. It has become our go-to-snack for an active, outdoorsy day or trip.

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Tenderize Beef (0.5 pound) by pounding it thin.
Step 2
Add Canola Oil (1 tablespoon), Rice Vinegar (2 teaspoon), Soy Sauce (1 tablespoon), Toasted Sesame Oil (2 teaspoon), Sriracha (2 teaspoon), Brown Sugar (2 teaspoon), Ground Ginger (1 1/2 teaspoon) and Small Minced Garlic (1 clove) in one bowl. Stir together.
Step 3
Mix in the beef. Finish with Kosher Salt (1/2 teaspoon) and Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (1/4 teaspoon)
Step 4
Add Extra-Virgin Olive Oil (1 tablespoon), Apple Cider Vinegar (1/2 tablespoon), Bourbon (1 teaspoon), Worcestershire Sauce (3 teaspoon), Pure Maple Syrup (2 teaspoon), Ketchup (1 tablespoon), Liquid Smoke (1/2 teaspoon) and Hot Sauce (2 teaspoon) in another bowl.
Step 5
Add in Small Minced Garlic (1 clove) and stir it up.
Step 6
Add in the beef. Finish with Kosher Salt (1 teaspoon) and Freshly Ground Black Pepper (to taste). Mix!
Step 7
Marinade for 24 hours.
Step 8
Spread out meat on dehydrator trays, then set dehydrator to 5.5 hours at 160 degrees F (70 degrees C) to dry pieces. It will last about a week in a Ziploc bag or mason jar. To make sure the beef jerky is ready, tear off a piece of dehydrated beef to check for redness (rawness).
Step 9
Remove excess grease by patting jerky dry with paper towels after it is dehydrated. Serve and enjoy!
