If using fresh fresh purchased meat, freeze partially for easy slicing.
Slice meat approximately 1/8 inch thickness.
In a large mixing bowl, mix together liquid smoke, soy sauce, sesame oil, tempura dipping sauce, minced garlic, garlic powder, brown sugar, pancake syrup and black pepper, mix well to blend using a whisk.
Add beer to mixture and mix gently using a spoon.
Place sliced meat into marinade and marinate for at least 2 hours and even up to 4 hours.
Place marinated slices on trays in dehydrator.
If desired, sprinkle with additional black pepper to suit your own taste.
The length of time to dehydrate depends on the type of a unit you are using.
There are units available that have a built-in fan and this reduces the time by almost 50%.
Generally, the time for dehydration will be from 6 hours to 16 hours.
Turn the strips of jerky over and change the trays to a different level.
Continue to dehydrate until slices are crispy, chewy and to your liking.
