Lean Beef

  • 1 lb Lean ground beef 10% fat or less


  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 tsp curing salt prague powder #1
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp ground lemon pepper
  • 1 tsp curry powder red
  • 1 tsp ginger powder
  • 1/4 tsp coriander
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder


  1. In a bowl, combine the 1lb of ground beef with the other ingredients
  2. Mix the ground beef and seasonings thoroughly
  3. If using a jerky gun, load the gun with the ground beef mixture & shoot 4-5" long strips onto a dehydrator tray or on a baking sheet
  4. If not using a jerky gun, spread the ground meat on a baking sheet, cover with wax paper, and roll with a rolling pin until meat is 1/4" thick
  5. Slice the pan of beef into jerky strips 4-5" long and 1" thick
  6. Dry with your favorite jerky making method. I used a dehydrator at 160F for 3 1/2 hours
  7. Ground jerky is finished when it first starts becoming dry to the touch. It should bend without breaking in half. If it cracks in half when bent a little bit, it was over dried
