Beef Jerky

Isn't this beef jerky picture so nicely set up and displayed to make you think, "I really want some of that?" Sorry but the fact that it took a good 25 hours for the jerky to dehydrate and that my sense of smells is heightened there was no way I was keeping it out longer than needed. This batch of jerky was vacuum sealed and sent off to DH. It was very tasty though, the girls even liked it even though it was very much Thai hot.

No measurements.
Have the butcher slice and trim up some meat for you, "jerky thin" ask him, or her.
Put it in a big bowl. Add some spices.
I used
Garlic powder
Lawry's seasoned salt
Onion Powder
Oyster flavored sauce
Worcestershire sauce

Soy Sauce
Fresh ground black pepper
Fresh ground coriander seeds
Fresh Ground dried Thai bird chilies
Mix it all up and make sure it's well coated, let it sit for about 10 minutes. Warm up the dehydrator. I don't know if you have to do that, just sounded like it was a good thing to do.

We have an old Ronco food dehydrator, it's never failed us. You remember him the "fix it, and forget it!" guy. Anyway follow the directions for your dehydrator, this took a good 24 hours but then again I live in a humid climate.
Pin It!
