Phil's Fabulous Beef Jerky

My brother used to make beef jerky and sell it at school. I loved it so much, I would sneak into his room and steal some pieces, since he would make me pay to eat some! This beef jerky is salty, peppery, and a little sweet-- DELICIOUS!


  1. Cut steak into 1 inch wide by 4 inches long strips. Smaller, leftover pieces will cook well- don't just through them away!
  2. Mix other 8 ingredients together.
  3. Pour mixture over meat.
  4. Coat each piece of meat with marinade.
  5. Marinate in refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
  6. Place meat on dehydrator trays- do not overlap meat.
  7. Dehydrate at 160 degrees for 10 hours.
  8. Beef jerky will be crispy and dark brown.

This was the first jerky recipe I had ever tried. We love it so much, I immediately turned around and made a 2nd batch! Thanks.
