Beef Jerky

Beef Jerky is a weakness for me. And I love trying different types and brands. However, my mom's recipe is still my all time favorite. It is seriously addictive!

How to Make Beef Jerky


  1. In a large gallon ziplock bag, place meat and the rest of the ingredients in the bag. Try to remove as much air from bag and seal. Use hands to knead the bag to help distribute seasoning over the meat equally.
  2. Place in fridge for at least 4 hours to marinate. However, over night is the best. While marinating it is good to re knead and flip the bag over a few times to make sure all the meat gets seasoned.
  3. Place strips on trays in food dehydrator. Do not overlap the strips. In my dehydrator it only takes about 6 hours for my beef jerky to be done.
    *If you don't have a dehydrator check out Alton Brown's box fan method, it's genius!
  4. Enjoy!
