looking for jerky recipes

Sun Dec 14, 2008 1:47 am

We just filed one of our two freezers with a half of cow we bought. I plan to make some of this in to jerky since I eat a lot of it to help subsidize my protein intake since I am a gym rat. I usually use the high mountain jerky mix from bass pro’s to make my jerky in the dehydrator but I would like to use a home made recipe and try to save some money. I figured I would throw this up here and see what sticks.

Thanks

Grunt,

The recipe I use is one I came up with, I slice a rump roast into strips 1/4 to 3/8 inches thick. Take cookie sheets and cover with paper towels (to help soak up the moisture). Mix up terriki and worchehire sauce(sorry for the spelling) about 1/2 and 1/2. Lay out the strips on the covered cookie sheets, paint them with the sauce mixture, salt and pepper. I use coarse ground pepper. Turn the meat strips over and do the other side. Place the meat in the fridge over night. This will help dry the meat. The next day, i build as small a fire as I can in my smoker so as to keep the temp low. Not over 125 or so degrees. Don't want to cook it. Place the meat in the smoker for about 4 hours. I use about a handful of charcoal and small pieces of hickory for the fire. Will have to keep the fire going cause it will burn up quickly by it not being too large. Keep check on the meat and after about 4 hours, sample a piece. Might need to leave it a bit longer if the meat is a little thick which won't hurt a thing, or if you like more smoke in the meat. It is good stuff.

when I make jerkey i use 'bulgogi beef' which is already thin cut, thin to the point you can rip it with your hands! I place it in a bowl with a bottle of beer I use zaratrains crab boil in the marinade add some salt pepper and red pepper to it. now keep in mind her I cook by pure sight and smell. mix u the marinade and taste it to adjust flavor prior to dehydrating via your dehydrator or oven. I also let mine marinade for three to four days.
