Sweet & Sour Duck Sauce Beef Jerky

Since I make a lot of beef jerky, I try all types of crazy / non standard beef jerky recipes. Some of those recipes turn out terrible and never make it to this site, but this one was pretty good.

Lean Meat – Beef Top Round or Venison Marinade – Duck sauce – Red wine – Worcestershire – Salt – Pepper – Dried mustard – Red pepper flakes – Water – Curing salt (optional)



Jerky Slicer


When it came to the amount of duck sauce used, I settled on a ¼ cup. After adding all the other ingredients, the duck sauce was added starting with a tablespoon and was slowly increased until the marinade had a balanced taste.

This beef top round was sliced at ¼ inch and marinated for 18 hours. My home oven was used to dry this jerky for 4.5 hours at 170° F. You can use any method of dehydrating that you like.

You are probably thinking, how did it taste? Pretty good! It was a refreshing change from the usual flavors seen when it comes to making beef jerky. So if today is the day you are feeling adventurous and craving something new, grab some beef and jerky it!
