How to Make Homemade Beef Jerky

How to Make Homemade Beef Jerky

Beef jerky has long been a favorite snack for many people, and it's no surprise why. While there are plenty of beef jerky options available in stores, making your own homemade beef jerky is a fun and rewarding experience.

to make your own homemade beef jerky, follow these steps:

Step 1: Choose Your Meat. The first step in making beef jerky is to choose the right cut of meat. Lean cuts of meat like top round or flank steak work best, as they will dry properly and be easier to slice.

Step 2: Slice the Meat. Next, slice the meat into thin strips against the grain. The thickness of the strips can vary, but a thickness of 1/8 to 1/4 inch is recommended.

Step 3: Make Your Marinade. The marinade is what gives beef jerky its delicious flavor. A simple marinade can include soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and brown sugar. You can also add spices like garlic powder, onion powder, or cayenne pepper to customize your flavor.

Step 4: Once you have made your marinade, place your sliced meat into a sealable plastic bag and pour in the marinade. Seal the bag and shake it to make sure the meat is evenly coated. Place the bag in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight to allow the flavors to infuse into the meat.

Step 5:  After marinating, remove the meat from the bag and pat it dry with paper towels. Place the strips on a baking sheet or a dehydrator tray and dry them in the oven or dehydrator at a low temperature (around 150-170°F) for 4-6 hours. Check the meat regularly to ensure that it is drying evenly.

Step 6: Store Your Jerky. Once your jerky is fully dry, let it cool completely before storing it in an airtight container. You can store it at room temperature for up to two weeks, or in the refrigerator or freezer for longer storage.
