I made this today but I added about 4 Tbsp of Molasses. I used 2 Flank steaks cut very thin and 2 bottles of teriyaki sauce then added about half cup each of soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce and just the garlic powder since I was out of onion powder. So it will be Teriyaki sweet due to the molasses I think.

This is such a easy recipe. I didn't know how easy it was to make jerky. I cut the flank across grain for tender jerky. I just covered the bottom rack in the oven with foil and after I patted off some of the marinade placed the meat on across the top oven rack. I used liquid smoke with the spices.
