“I am spoiled to this recipe and I know you will be too. It doesn't last long around my house. I've occasionally caught others sneaking a few pieces out of the oven before it was completely finished. Once you try it you will never want to go back to store bought ever again.”

  1. Combine the soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, liquid smoke and steak seasoning in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool.
  2. Pour the marinade into a glass or plastic bowl and add the meat slices. Stir to coat and then cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days. Turn or stir occasionally to marinate the meat evenly.
  3. Preheat the oven to 175 degrees F (80 degrees C). Arrange the beef strips on a wire rack set over a baking sheet. If you like, you can sprinkle a little more steak seasoning on it at this point.
  4. Bake for 60 to 90 minutes in the preheated oven, until dry but still pliable. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

My husband and I just bought a food dehydrator and this was our first jerky recipe to try. We made it according to the recipe and it turned out great. We will use this recipe again.



We really didn't like this recipe at all. I followed it exactly and the flavour of the jerky was not good at all. Maybe this is better for a steak marinade than a piece of jerky.

Very, very good. I tried to alter it slightly but it did'nt turn out as well. I did use less liquid smoke though. I used 2 to 2 1/2 Tbls. Will make many times again.
