Sweet & Sour Duck Sauce Beef Jerky

A nice sweet and sour jerky that hits the spot. I love duck sauce when eating egg rolls and it turns out to be just as good when making jerky!

Lean Meat

  • 1 lb Beef Top Round or Venison


  • 1/4 cup duck sauce
  • 1/4 cup red wine
  • 1 tbsp worcestershire
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp dried mustard
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 cup cold water



  1. Trim all visible fat from the beef and place in freezer for an hour or two to partially freeze.
  2. While the meat is in the freezer, combine the duck sauce, red wine, worcestershire, salt, pepper, mustard, red pepper, and water in a medium bowl or ziplock bag and mix well.
  3. Remove the meat from the freezer and slice ¼" strips against the grain. Cut with the grain for a chewier jerky. I had the butcher slice this top round for me eliminating this slicing step. You could also use a Jerky Slicer for evenly sliced strips.
  4. Add sliced beef to the mixture and marinate for 8-24 hours in the refrigerator.
  5. After the meat has finished marinating, remove from refrigerator and strain excess marinade.
  6. Dry with your favorite jerky making method. My oven was used for this recipe at the lowest temperature of 170 degrees for 4.5 hours.
  7. The jerky is finished when it bends and cracks, but does not break in half.
