Post Your Beef Jerkey Recipes

Yesterday my family bought a dehydrator, FINALLY!!! I know they really aren't to expensive, but we have just never made our way around to doing it until now. Mainly we bought it because we wanted to try making jerkey at home and have heard this is a really easy way. We also bought a kit that comes w/ some seasonings and stuff, but I was wondering...With all of the highly intelligent people here...How do you guys w/ dehydrators go about making jerkey?? We just wanted to try and see what kind of options we could come up with. I appreciate the input

I like to keep things simple, so here's the basic recipe I like to use.

Use whatever kind of meat you like, but the recipe calls for London broil.

Marinade:

1/2 cup liquid smoke
3 cups soy sauce
1/2 pound Brown Sugar

Combined all ingredients for marinade in a tightly covered container and allow to stand for 10 minutes. Add sliced meat and allow to stand another 10 minutes, shaking occasionally. place meat on dehydrator racks and dry at least 12 hours.

Hey, that sound real good. I think we will give that a try!

Kitty...We will still buy jerky in the store for sure. Just looking for some ways to make it a little cheaper. This stuff is expensive for sure.

Oh I know. I'm just way too lazy to make my own although I've seen it done on TV. Check out Alton Brown of Good Eats on the Food Network.

Oh...me to. Good thing my wife really enjoys this kind of stuff. I can run all these ideas by her and she's like a kid in a candy store


Geez, thanks Katonburg bro!!! Here I am trying to save a little money and you point me in that direction.... It looks good though, I think I'm going to try some of that out.

I ordered the sampler pack and do yourself a favor and just get the original. It's far and away the best flavor they offer.

I like to add some fresh wasabi to a teriyaki/soy marinade, stir well, soak cardboard-thin sliced lean flank steak in it overniht, then dehydrate.

Kitty, homemade jerky is MUCH better than the prepackaged comercial stuff. Cheaper too. Plus you can come up with great flavors. (Like Buffalo jerky with red hot sauce and some crushed red pepper...)

mmm
buffalo jerky
not buffalo the animal, but buffalo the flavor.
that does sound good.
Yeah, you're lucky to get prepackaged jerky cheaper than a dollar an ounce in the store. I'm not sure how cheap it works out to be homemade, but it's gotta be less than 16 bucks a pound.
Any [relatively easy] way of making jerky without a jerkymaker/dehydrator?
Preferably without "1 box fan, 4 paper air-conditioning filters, and 2 bungee cords". What was that, Alton Brown does MacGyver?

I don't make it much anymore because of the above mentioned link. When I did, I added various ingredients and never wrote them down. Then I made the perfect jerky and the recipe was lost forever.

However, I recreated something very close to it. I use London Broil cut into about 1/4" strips. Mix up a big bowl (BIG bowl) with this:

a bottle of wicherschireshere (sp?) sauce and enough water to keep it fairly liquid...but not much.

Let it sit overnight and then dry it out, and you have some of the best stuff possible. But Bronco Billy can't be beat.

I think making your own jerky is like making your own beer. You decide to do it because you are convinced it will be cheaper, but it turns out not to be. I think the Bronco Billy stuff is about $10 a pound and is truly amazing. Mine worked out to just over that. Figure that 3 pounds of meat will make 1 pound of jerky, so just the meat will run you $6-$9 a pound.

Darn, I was hoping this would be for recipes where beef jerky is an ingredient. I wonder if it would be good in, say, chili.

If you put it in chili, wouldn't it rehydrate dehydrated meat? In essence, it would end up as chili with flank steak/london broil?
