    EdsGirlAngie's Note:

    This was my first experiment with dry cure jerky. It's a peppery jerky with the flavors of chili. The beef sold as "fajita meat" works perfectly for jerky; it's lean and in good-sized slices. Prep time includes seasoning the beef overnight. Serving size is approximate - how much can you eat at one time?

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      In a bowl, combine all ingredients and really rub the dry ingredients into the grain of the meat; really get it worked in Cover and marinate overnight.
    2. 2
      If you have a dehydrator, by all means use it.
    3. 3
      My oven method: Place aluminum foil on oven rack.
    4. 4
      Preheat oven to 170 degrees F (that's as low as my oven will go--).
    5. 5
      Put meat on baking racks then set on the foiled oven rack to dry.
    6. 6
      Prop the oven door open with an oven mitt to allow moisture to escape.
    7. 7
      In my oven, it takes about 7 hours for complete drying; slightly less if you use very thin slices (mine are about 1/4 inch thick).

      I have been experimenting with jerky recipes for about 6 months now-wet and dry. I have found this one to be the best (with a few modifications of my own). I make batches and take to work, poll my co-workers to see what they like etc and then make changes to the recipe according to the feedback I was given.
      I backed off the black pepper to one half tsp., lowered the Chili powder to 2 TBSP., used only 1 Tsp. of Cumin, added half TSP of onion powder, and a qtr TSP. of white pepper. I added 2.5 Tbsp. of brown sugar. This gave us a nice sweet/hot result.

      Hubby really enjoyed this :) I like that it is a dry rub, so if I don't have soy sauce I can still make jerky - thanks!
