Pam's Smoked Orange Beef Jerky

Pamela Rappaport


I wanted a jerky with a totally different taste. This also is much less salty than most recipes. Store in the refrigerator.

1 1/2 lb
lean beef such as round steak
1/2 c
prepared orange beef sauce, i use panda express brand
1 c
orange juice
3/4 tsp
prague salt #1
1 tsp
garlic salt
grated zest from 1 orange


1Slice the beef into 1/4 inch slices, it'll be easier if you put it in the freezer for about 45 minutes before slicing
2Mix everything together in a gallon zip top bag, mix well and refrigerate over night.
3Preheat smoker to 170 degrees.
4Drain the meat in a colander but do not rinse.
5Either spread out directly on the racks for drying or use wooden skewers to hang the slices. Place in the smoker.
6If using wood pellets, get them started and add to the smoker. If using chips, add them now too. Use something light, I use a mix of mostly apple with a little hickory.
7Smoke for about 2 hours then continue drying in the smoker or remove to a dehydrator. I use the smoker. Keep the temp at 170 for a total of 3 hours then lower to 150 until jerky is dehydrated to your liking. Mine takes about 4 hours total.
