First time making jerky. I used NMY sirloin and marinated it over night. It came out really tasty. Some pieces have a good "kick". I used garlic salt and it tasted great.

This is the first time I've made jerky and I LOVE this. It's a bit salty for me but I don't like salt so next time I will just cut down on it but the flavor is great!

This marinade is delicious! I have used it many times since Christmas (when I found it)! My husband is very picky when it comes to jerky and this is the only one he loves. The only thing I do differently is add 1-2 tsp of habanero sauce, extra red pepper flakes and about 1-2tsp cayenne pepper. He likes it very spicy and works wonderfully with beef also! Thank you for sharing!

While the initial flavor of this jerky was great, after a few days it was much too salty for my taste. I even used low sodium soy sauce (btw, for those that have Kroger available, their low sodium soy sauce has less sodium than kikoman low sodium soy sauce). I realize that salt helps preserve the jerky, but there must be a happy medium. Next time I will omit or reduce the kosher salt, and may even dilute the low sodium soy sauce. But again, the initial flavor was awesome.

great, wanted a bit of spice so added 2oz red hot sauce, 2 oz A1 and 2oz sriracha chili sauce, then 2 more sriracha 1/2 thru marinade process (5 hrs in). dehydrated til nearly snappable. Came out great, shouldv'e thrown in some curing salt to preserve as did 15 lbs first crack and 10 more 2nd try.

This is defintely a venison recipe. I did substitue some beef round and it was not as good. I am giving it a 3 star because I did not care for that much soy. I did not find this recipe at all spicy even after adding twice as much red pepper flakes. Worth a try on Venison.

Just made this today w/ some venison that a friend hit w/ his truck!! I used a meat slicer to slice very thin strips... and I marinated in your recipe overnight. When I opened the bag to pull the meat out it smelled delicious and I was very excited about cooking it. I have tasted several jerky recipes in the past but this is the first I've cooked. I placed cooling racks on my cookie sheets to elevate the meat and flipped after 3 hours. I actually tasted a piece at that time and it is done, but I cooked another hour to make sure it's completely dry. It seems to cook much faster on the racks... or maybe it's because my meat is so thin. Either way, this is the best venison jerky I have EVER tasted... and my husband can't wait to take it to work for everyone to taste. The only change I made with this recipe is to use regular table salt since I didn't have kosher. Thanks for posting this tasty recipe!!
