    Excellent! I oven dried mine - which with my extremely thin sliced steak - took approx. 6 hours. It was still bendable but not brittle. Taste is very good. Next time I might experiment and add a couple dashes of hot pepper or even hot red pepper flakes, and maybe some brown sugar. I am also planning on trying this with turkey! Thanks for posting --
