Marinated Jerky

Recipe Submitted by Donna ..|..Index | Miscellaneous

Homemade jerky. For long term storage place in refrigerator.


  • 1 pound very lean round or flank steak (or very lean ground beef)
  • Marinade:
  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 4 tablespoons Worcestershire
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper (add more for hotter jerky)
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


Round or flank steak: Remove all fat and marinate for an hour. Place the meat in the freezer. When the meat is semi-frozen remove it and slice into strips that are 3/8 to 1/4 of an inch thick. TIP: for chewy jerky cut along grain; for tender jerky, cut across grain. Lay on dehydrator trays. Don't overlap.
Ground beef: add marinade to beef and press beef between two sheets of waxed paper until around 3/8 - 1/4 of an inch. Peel off top paper. Cut beef into strips with pizza cutter and lay on dehydrator trays. Don't overlap.
Dry at 145 for 8 to 10 hours, or until jerky bends like a green willow without breaking.
*Turn meat at least once during drying process.
