Jerky was a staple food back in the day it is not only nutritious but can be put up and stored for longer periods of time. We can make jerky out of beef, venison, chicken, fish about any kind of meat. This makes Jerky the perfect survival food. It's lite and super easy to make, plus when it is made at home it saves money. With this beef jerky recipe you will be able to learn how to make an awesome tasting jerky.
2 lbs round steak (or flank or brisket)
1/4 C. soy sauce
1 Tbsp. Worcestershire
1/4 tsp. ea. pepper and garlic powder
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. hickory smoke-flavored salt
Trim and discard fat from meat. Cut meat in 1/8 to 1/4 thick slices. In a bowl combine all but meat. Stir until seasonings dissolve. Add meat and mix thoroughly. Let stand one hour. Shake off excess liquid and put meat slices on oven racks or shallow baking pan. Dry meat at lowest possible oven temp (maybe 180 or 200) until it is brown, hard, and dry. Can take as long as 24 hours if the jerky is thick. If you want to cut the time when making this jerky you can use one of the Ninja Foodi's to speed it up. We love our foodie! It makes cooking a lot easier and less time consuming.
