“This is a great way to make beef jerky at home without the use of a smoker or dehydrator. Just pop the meat in your oven and eight hours later you've got delicious jerky. Ask your butcher to slice the meat for you.”

First time making beef jerky. This was excellent! Friends also loved this recipe. I reduced cooking time by 1 hour for more tender result.



My husband thought the flavor of the jerky was very good, but thought it was too crunchy. I'll try it again and reduce the cooking time to give it the chewier texture that he likes.



almost as good as company's coming recipe. Added liquid smoke to improve jerky taste
