DIY Beef Jerky

4
1 rating
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 InstructionsHide images
step 1
Tenderize Beef (8 oz) by pounding it thin.
step 2
Add Canola Oil (1 Tbsp), Rice Vinegar (1/2 Tbsp), Soy Sauce (1 Tbsp), Toasted Sesame Oil (1/2 Tbsp), Sriracha (1/2 Tbsp), Brown Sugar (1/2 Tbsp), Ground Ginger (1/2 Tbsp) and Small Minced Garlic (1 clove) in one bowl. Stir together.
step 3
Mix in the beef. Finish with Kosher Salt (1/2 tsp) and Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (1/4 tsp)
step 4
Add Extra-Virgin Olive Oil (1 Tbsp), Apple Cider Vinegar (1/2 Tbsp), Bourbon (1 tsp), Worcestershire Sauce (1 Tbsp), Pure Maple Syrup (1/2 Tbsp), Ketchup (1 Tbsp), Liquid Smoke (1/2 tsp) and Hot Sauce (1/2 Tbsp) 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 tsp) 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!
