“A zesty venison jerky that you can make at home in your oven. If you have a food dehydrator, you can dry the jerky in it by following the manufacturer's instructions. You can also reuse the marinade for additional batches.”

Directions

  1. Slice meat into long strips, 1 inch wide and 1/8 inch thick. In a large releasable plastic bag, combine soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, liquid smoke, ketchup, pepper, garlic powder, onion salt and salt. Place meat in, and close bag. Refrigerate overnight. Knead occasionally, to evenly distribute marinade.
  2. Preheat oven to 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Place a pan on the bottom of oven to catch drips, or line with aluminum foil.
  3. Place meat strips on a rack so that they do not touch each other, and dehydrate for 6 to 8 hours in the oven, or until desired consistency is achieved.

The marinade was absolutely delicious. The first batch was done in a borrowed dehydrater and it tasted better than any jerky I have ever had. However, the second batch was done in our oven and it was too dry and tasted like pieces of burnt meat.

I made this recipe but changed it a little. I only used 1 1/2 tbsp. liquid smoke, and I forgot the ketchup on accident. I'm glad I did, because the jerky turned out AWESOME! Just like store bought. Oh, and I sliced my meat a little thicker than what the recipe called for too.

My husband is a busy man during deer season... and therefore I am too. By the end of the season I find myself throwing out meat to make room for more, so I thought what a way to use it all up. The recipe was great, just make sure you dont dehydrate while you are sleeping first batch came out alittle dry. Recipe also works great with cuts of beef.
