Spicy Teriyaki Beef Jerky

This was my first time using mirin, a sweet Japanese cooking wine, when making jerky. I have seen it in a couple recipes and finally got around to trying it.

  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup mirin
  • 1 tsp red pepper
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp ginger grated
  • 1/2 tsp garlic grated
  • 1/2 jalapeno pepper chopped



  1. Add soy sauce, sugar, mirin, red pepper, black pepper, ginger, garlic, and jalapeno pepper to a blender and mix until the sugar has dissolved
  2. Place slices of top round milanesa in the marinade and set in the refrigerator for 4-12hrs.
  3. After meat has finished marinating, remove from the marinade and pat dry with paper towels.
  4. Dry with yourfavorite jerky making method. A dehydrator was used when making this recipe. The slices were placed on dehydrator racks so they were not overlapping or touching. Dried for about 3 hours at 160 degrees.
  5. Jerky will be finished when it bends and cracks, but does not break in half. Allow to cool for several hours before storing in air tight containers.
