How to Make Alcohol Infused Jerky

How to Make Alcohol Infused Jerky

Alcohol-infused jerky is a delicious and unique twist on traditional beef jerky. By marinating the meat in alcohol, you can add a depth of flavor that complements the natural taste of the beef. Whether you are a fan of whiskey, beer, or wine, there is an alcohol-infused jerky recipe that will suit your tastes.

To make alcohol-infused jerky, you will need to start with high-quality beef. Look for a lean cut of beef, such as top round or flank steak. Trim off any excess fat and slice the beef into thin strips. The thinner the strips, the faster the jerky will dry.

Next, choose your alcohol. Whiskey, bourbon, and beer are popular choices for alcohol-infused jerky, but you can also use wine, tequila, or rum. The alcohol will act as a tenderizer, helping to break down the meat fibers and making the jerky more tender.

To make the marinade, mix together your chosen alcohol with soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, and any other seasonings you like. Garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, and cayenne pepper are all good options. Place the beef strips in the marinade and let them sit for at least 4 hours, or overnight for a stronger flavor.

When you are ready to make the jerky, preheat your oven to 175°F. Lay the beef strips on a wire rack set over a baking sheet, making sure they do not overlap. Bake the jerky for 4-6 hours, or until it is dried out and chewy. You can also use a dehydrator if you have one, following the manufacturer's instructions.

Once the jerky is done, let it cool completely before storing it in an airtight container. Alcohol-infused jerky can last for up to a month at room temperature, or longer in the fridge.

There are endless variations of alcohol-infused jerky to try. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • Whiskey and soy sauce: Mix together equal parts whiskey and soy sauce, along with some brown sugar and garlic powder. Marinate the beef strips for at least 4 hours before baking.

  • Beer and Worcestershire sauce: Mix together 1 cup of your favorite beer with 2 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce, 1 tablespoon of brown sugar, and some black pepper. Marinate the beef strips for at least 4 hours before baking.

  • Red wine and rosemary: Mix together 1 cup of red wine with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 1 tablespoon of chopped fresh rosemary, and some salt and pepper. Marinate the beef strips for at least 4 hours before baking.

Alcohol-infused jerky is a fun and delicious way to experiment with different flavors and seasonings. Whether you are a meat lover or a whiskey aficionado, there is an alcohol-infused jerky recipe that is sure to satisfy your cravings. So why not try making some at home today?
