My son likes beef jerky and often gets it at the gas stations when we are traveling.my parents got us a dehydrator for Christmas 2 years ago and I’ve made beef jerky before with the spice mixes provided but we used them all up so I had to research a homemade mix… Man there are a lot of different ones out there! I found a few that I fused together to create this one 🙂 easy and not much work to make!
A nice sharp knife is key and cut opposite the grain of the steak so it doesn’t fall apart.
1/4 cup of Braggs Liquid Soy Seasoning
2 TBSP of Worchestershire Sauce
2 TBSP maple sugar ( brown if you don’t have maple)
2 TSP sea salt
1 TSP black pepper
1 TSP onion powder
1 TSP garlic powder
1 TSP paprika
Pour over steak slices and evenly coat. Refrigerate for at least 8 hours. I just put it in over night
Now if you have a dehydrator, then lay out the steak and set it at the highest setting … Usually 160F and run it for about 4-5 hours.
If you don’t have a dehydrator you can lay it out on baking sheets and put it in your oven on the highest rack and bake at 150 for at least 4-5 hours. Just check the consistency at around 4 hours . It will all depend on how thick you sliced your steak!
Enjoy… Hide from people if you want it to last!
