I found this recipe in a fun book that I picked up at a thrift store. It is called: The Best Little Cookbook in the West. I thought it sounded like something fun and unusual to make that the kids would love this summer to take on hiking or camping trips (as well as an anytime snack-as my kids love jerky!). Don't be put off by prep and bake time....includes marinating overnight and oven time at a low temperature.

serves Depends on size of strips cut
prep time 8 Hr
cook time 4 Hr
