Homemade Teriyaki Beef Jerky

Kristin D


This is an AMAZING recipe I've been using for quite a few years now. I got so tired of always having to spend so much money on such a small bag of jerky that I decided I wanted to try my hand at making my own. And it. Was. Awesome!
Just a tip: You should try and find a thick teriyaki sauce for this.
