20 Beef Jerky Recipes

PLEASE NOTE: The following is a February 1997 Statement from the USDA’s

Meat and Poultry Hotline (1-800-535-4555) regarding the safe making of

jerky. Many of the following recipes do not follow these USDA guidelines

exactly, but I wanted to include this statement from them so you would be

aware of it. I’ve made jerky in a food dehydrator many times without

cooking it first and have never had a problem, and have also used a lower

oven temperature than they recommend, but if you’d like to be SURE that

you’re safe from microorganisms or bacteria, you may want to adust any of

these recipes as needed to fit their guidelines, which they say will prevent

any bacteria or microorganisms from forming or lingering. Here is their

statement:

“Jerky can be made in a dehydrator, but the meat must be cooked first by

BAKING IN AN OVEN OR SIMMERING IN A MARINADE before being placed in the

dehydrator. Just using the dehydrator will inactivate microorganisms but not

kill them. The right conditions of heat and moisture may cause the

microorganisms to become active without the consumer even being aware of a

potentially dangerous situation.”

 

Baking In An Oven First: Place the jerky on cake racks placed on baking

sheets and bake in a 325 F oven. Check the internal temperature using a meat

thermometer (stack the jerky and then insert the thermometer in the center).

An internal temperature of 160 F must be reached for beef products, fish and

game meats. An internal temperature of 180 F must be reached for poultry

products. Once this temperature is reached, you may proceed with the

manufacturer’s directions for drying jerky in a dehydrator (adjustments in

the listed length of time to dry will be required), or you may finish drying

in the oven using the following guidelines…….. The temperature of the

oven should be 170 F or higher and the door needs to be propped open 2 to 6

inches. Circulation can be improved by placing a fan outside the oven near

the door. CAUTION: This is not a safe practice for a home with small

children!! Dry the jerky until a test piece cracks but does not break when

it is bent (5 to 6 hours). Pat off any beads of oil with absorbent toweling

and cool. Remove strips from the racks. Cool. Package and store in a cool,

dry place.

 

Simmering In A Marinade First: The meat is marinated for both flavor and

tenderness. Ingredients for marinades include oil, salt and an acid product

such as vinegar, lemon juice, teriyaki, soy sauce or wine. Follow the

directions for the marinade of your choosing. After the meat has marinated

for 1-2 hours or overnight, place the meat and marinade in a saucepan and

simmer until the internal temperature of 160 F for beef, fish and game meats

or 180 F for poultry is reached using a meat thermometer (use the liquid to

measure the temperature). Drain. Continue by drying the jerky either in a

dehydrator or using the oven.

 

Okay, now that the legal “mumble jumble” is outta the way……….. On to

the recipes!! :)

2 lbs round steak (or flank or brisket)

1/4 C. soy sauce

maybe 180 or 200) until it is brown, hard, and dry. Can take as long as 24

hours.

2. BEEF JERKY #2

 

3 LBS lean bottom or top round (or sirloin rump is the best!)

 

Trim all external fat from meat and cut into 1/4″ – 1/8″ slices (or have

store meat-cutter do this, it’s his job!). Cut into 1″ wide strips

length-wise.

 

In a large bowl put:

1 1/2 tbls. liquid smoke

1 tsp. worcestershire sauce

1/2 c.dark brown sugar

1/2 tsp. granulated garlic

dash of cayenne pepper powder

 

For HOT & SPICY add:

1tbls. crushed red pepper

For EXTRA HOT:

Leave alot of crushed red pepper on beef strips!!!

 

Place strips in marinade and stir and poke with a fork to thoroughly

distribute marinade. Cover and put in refigerator for 24-48 hrs (the longer

the BETTER!). Place strips in a kitchen strainer. Shake off excess marinade

and place on dehydrator racks. Follow dehydrator instuctions for beef

jerky. You don’t have a dehydrator?! NO PROBLEM!!! Remove oven racks. Place

foil on bottom rack and replace at lowest position. Thoroughly CLEAN & DRY

top rack and lay strips width-wise across rack. Put at middle position and

turn on oven to lowest setting. Leave oven door open a crack to allow excess

moisture to escape. Jerky is done in 6-24 hrs depending on thickness of

strips. Jerky should be dry and able to bend without breaking or crumbling.

Store in zip-lock bag for weeks or freeze for up to one year. ENJOY!!!

Freeze the London Broil or other lean roast. When ready to make jerky,

remove the roast from the freezer and let partially thaw. When just able to

slice, first remove all fat and then slice against the grain in thin (1/4

inch or less) slices. Cover the meat with the marinade, turn from time to

time and let marinade overnight. In the morning line a shallow cookie sheet

with a few layers of paper towels. Place on lower rack. Place upper rack in

oven in top position and lower rack in lower position. Hang the beef slices

from the upper rack with toothpicks above the paper towels. 6 hours at 160F

average temp is about right. If your oven is real tight, you might crack

open the door a bit to allow the water vapor to escape.
