Easy enough - and no added yucky stuff. Based on a recipe from

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Partially freeze the meat - 2 to 4 hours, so that you can slice it super thin. When it's all nice and frosty, slice your hunk o' meat into nice thin strips - and remove all the fat. I didn't do that the first time and the results were gross! The fat doesn't dry out, it just gets kind of squidgy and gelatinous. Bleck!
  2. Place the coconut aminos and all other remaining ingredients in a large zip-lock bag. Add in the meat. Shake and smoosh to completely soak the meat. Place the bag in the fridge and marinate for 2-24 hours - longer is better.
  3. Place the marinated meat in your handy-dandy dehydrator. If you don't have one, you can use your oven set at about 170ºF, 80ºC. Dry the meat strips for as long as it takes - usually about 12 -18 hours.
