The Very Best Beef Jerky Recipe

Print Friendly and PDF

I have tested out all kinds of beef jerky recipes out on my friends, and THIS WAS THEIR FAVORITE ONE!  Make this low carb easy snack that will keep you feeling satisfied until your next meal, protein has a way of doing that!  I brought this up glamping and it makes a great gift too.  It's salty, tangy, spicy, smoky, chewy and slightly sweet.  THESE ARE ADDICTIVE!  I recommend these for the perfect bar snack for your next party. 

3 lbs. thinly sliced beef brisket or flank roast
2 cups Soy Sauce
2 cup Worcestershire sauce
½ cup Molasses
1 tablespoon of Garlic Powder
1 tablespoon Onion Salt
1 teaspoon Chipotle Powder
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon Paprika
3 tablespoons Liquid Smoke
1 cup pineapple juice
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 ½ gallon zip lock bag

If you have a nice electric meat slicer, good for you.  If you don’t, do what I do and buy some nice big round roast or flank steak from your local butcher and have him slice it for you about 1/8 inch thin slices. With a pair of sharp clean kitchen scissors, cut the slices of meat into thin strips and place the plain meat into a big Ziploc bag. 

In a blender add all of the ingredients and blend on medium until well mixed and pour over the meat into the bag.  Seal the bag and shake it up and lay it out flat to make sure all of the pieces are well coated.  Place in the refrigerator to marinate for 24 hours.

I suggest to do this next part before you go to bed:
Preheat the oven to its lowest setting, 150 – 170 degrees F.  I always like to line the bottom of the oven with aluminum foil for easier clean up.  Lay out the strips of marinated beef onto the baking racks. Sprinkle the wet slices with black ground pepper, or Harissa, or ground chili pepper, if you like them a little hotter.  Place in the oven and let them cook for 5 hours, or overnight if you get up early.  Place them in large clean Mason Jars and seal tight.  Good for at least 3 weeks, but it won’t last, it will be eaten up fast.  I promise, your friends and family with LOVE THIS STUFF!
