Anyone have a good recipe for beef jerky? I don't have a dehydrator, so I usually just use my oven with a wooden spoon stuck in the door to keep moisture out.
My usually recipe is a combo of soy sauce, garlic, honey, hot sauce and sesame oil. Any other ideas? My kids love it spicy..
I've been using this recipe for about 20 years.
3.5 fluid ounces Liquid Smoke (just under 1/4 cup)
5.0 fluid ounces Soy Sauce (just under 2/3 cup)
5.0 fluid ounces Worcestershire Sauce (just under 2/3 cup)
10 tbl brown sugar
1/4 cup horseradish
1 tbl garlic salt
20 shakes Tabasco
Marinate overnight. Pepper (optional) before dehydrating. Dry for 12 to 16 hours (1/4 inch thick) - depending on how ‘dry’ you like it.
Mine is similar to yours, but I don't use liquid smoke, I use fresh garlic, and a lot more hot sauce. I'm curious about the liquid smoke though. Does it give it a strong flavor? I don't like really smoky flavors.
Chef J, I will have to search for your Vietnamese one!
Also, is it worth using a dehydrator?
