The secret to great beef jerky is love and seasoning. Now that I’ve seen this video recipe, I can make my own grass-fed beef jerky at home like I never thought I could before.
It’s your turn. Check out the 6-minute video and learn how you can make beef jerky at home and amaze your family and friends.
Making beef jerky at home is actually just a simple two-step process. The first step is to marinate and the second is to dehydrate.
Now you first start by creating your marinade sauce. Add a liberal serving of Worcestershire Sauce into a mixing bowl. Then pour in an equal amount of soy sauce.
Then add in your seasonings. In the video he recommends freshly ground black pepper, smoked paprika, and then a little bit of ground cayenne pepper and red chili flakes for a spicy kick. Next add in some garlic powder and onion powder. Lastly add in something sweet to balance out the spicy. Try honey, molasses, or brown sugar. Now whisk it all together.
When you’re at the butcher ask for a couple of pounds of thinly sliced top round. Then marinate the beef in the mixture for at least three hours. Make sure each piece of beef gets covered in the marinade. Wrap it up tightly and store in the fridge for three or four hours.
When it’s done marinating, place the beef on a paper towel to absorb excess moisture. Pat it down with paper towels and when it’s dry transfer it onto a baking rake over a baking sheet. Arrange the beef so the edges are touching but not overlapping anywhere.
Put it in the oven at 175° F for 3 to 4 hours or until the beef is completely dry and leathery. Every hour or so open up the oven to allow the moist air out and let dry air in.
After it is completely dried out, the beef should look leathery. Now cut it up into bite-sized pieces and enjoy a snack that is far better than anything you’ll find in a supermarket.
