THE BEST beef jerky recipe. I have made a ton of recipes out of all kinds of things. Roasts, steaks, etc. But the only stuff I get asked for is this stuff. It is so cheap and so versatile.

Wonderful and cheap to make! Like other reviewers, I have had the best results by mixing all ingredients into the meat rather than coating the strips.
