  • Buy the meat fresh from the butcher, about 2 mm thick and put it in the freezer for 2 1/2 hour.
  • Cut away all excess fat,can be done easily now the meat is partly frozen.
  • Defrost meat in microwave.
  • Combine garlic, soy sauce, pepper, salt, liquid smoke, lemon juice, honey in a plastic container and marinate the meat in it for 12 to 24 hours.
  • The next day, put a oven rack on the lowest level and cover it with foil for easy cleaning.
  • Also, put another rack on the highest level.
  • Preheat oven to 50°C.
  • Insert a wooden toothpick through the end of each slice of meat, and suspend each slice from the top rack in the oven, using the toothpick as a support for the slice.
  • This way you can easily fit 1 kilogram of meat on one rack.
  • Bake at 50°C and leave the oven door open to allow moisture to escape.
  • Check the meat after 5 hours.
  • It could take up to 8 hours, depending on the thickness of the slices.
  • Jerky should bend, and not snap.
  • Then it is ready!
  • Store in a air-free zip bag.
