Homemade Beef Jerky Recipe
This Homemade Beef Jerky recipe is one of the easiest out there, and you don't need a dehydrator - just your oven and a simple marinade make this high protein snack!
Servings: 8 servings
- 16 oz top sirloin steak
- 3/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
- 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
- 2 tbsp honey
- 2 tsp hot sauce (such as Tabasco)
- 2 tsp black pepper
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
Freeze steak for 1 hour and then slice as thinly as possible against the grain, trimming away any fat.
Mix together marinade ingredients then add to a large freezer bag. Add steak strips to a bag and let marinate at least 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 170 F. Place steak strips on a paper towel-lined plate and squeeze excess liquid out of strips with paper towel until dried. Add steak strips to bamboo skewers, then hang along the highest rack of the oven.
Close your oven door, propping it open slightly with an oven mitt. Be sure to do this so some moisture can escape from the oven, and cook for 5 hours.
When finished, remove jerky from skewers and store in the fridge up to 14 days.
