Jerky Recipe

So lately we've been on somewhat of a jerky kick I guess you'd say. We don't typically buy store bought jerky, unless we're in a rush to leave for hiking and we're ill-prepared (whoops). So we've made two batches of jerky in the last week, and thought we would share the recipe! We used to always make it in the oven, as that's how I grew up making it, but have recently started using a dehydrator and holy crap the clean-up is so much easier now. Definitely a great snack for hiking and camping (which we love, and usuallyyyy what we'll make it for) or just whenever! Can't go wrong.

- 2 lb round, or flank steak... or sometimes we just find something discounted to be honest. That part has been trial and error, stick with these two for best results. Cut off any fat and slice into thin strips

- 2/3 cup soy sauce

- 2 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce

- 2 Tbsp liquid smoke

- 1 Tbsp Xylitol

- 2 tsp salt

- 1 tsp ground black pepper

- 1 tsp garlic powder

- 1 tsp onion powder

- 1 tsp paprika

- 2 tsp crushed red pepper

Mix all of the ingredients together in gallon zip-lock bag with the meat and marinate overnight (8-12 hours). Lay the bag flat and halfway through marinating flip the bag so the meat gets evenly marinated. Place meat strips on dehydrator rack, best if not overlapping, and dry at dehydrators recommendation. We dry at 165 ° F for about 6 - 7 hours, depending on how thick our cuts are and how many trays we have stacked in the dehydrator. Enjoy!
