Sweet Coconut Jerky

The sweetness of the coconut sugar along with the saltiness of the soy sauce blends to make this one great tasting jerky. This Sweet Coconut Jerky recipe was seen on a blog called weedemandreap, and I just had to try it.

Lean Meat – Beef Sirloin Tip Steak or Venison Marinade – Soy sauce – Coconut sugar – Liquid smoke – Apple cider vinegar – Table salt – Pepper



Nesco Dehydrator

The sirloin was about ½ inch thick, which I wrapped in plastic and pounded (tenderized) the crap out of it until it was a good ¼ inch in thickness.

After pounding it out, it was sliced against the grain in inch wide strips. The marinade consisted of soy sauce, coconut sugar, liquid smoke, apple cider vinegar, salt, & pepper.

You would think that coconut sugar would be white, right? Nope, it is brown! This is the first time I have used coconut sugar in anything I have made and was astonished when I saw it was not white. Now you know, and knowing is half the battle.

After drying on paper towels, these fantastic looking strips of meat were put in the dehydrator and dried for 3 ½ hours at 160° and then turned down to 90° for another 2 ½ hours.
