Chili Lime Jerky

Chili Lime has become a favorite flavor among all types of snacks in the last couple of years. Well if it works for potato chips, why not jerky? After trying several different recipes, this is the best one that I created. My Fiances' Wife's* favorite recipe so far, this is a must try.

Ingredients

Lean Beef

Marinade

  • 1 tsp mesquite liquid smoke Don't add if using a smoker
  • 2 tbsp worcestershire sauce

  • 1 1/2 tbsp lime juice

Instructions

  1. Pick you favorite type of beef and trim all visible fat. Place the meat in the freezer for 1-2 hours to partially freeze. This allows for easier slicing and more consistent widths.
  2. Mix all above ingredients in a container with a tight fitting lid. Whisk marinade until all brown sugar is dissolved.
  3. Remove beef from the freezer and slice against the grain between 1/8"-1/4" thick.
  4. Add sliced beef to the container of marinade and shake well to evenly coat the meat. Marinate in the refrigerator for 6-24 hours.
  5. After marinating, remove and dry the strips with paper towels. Dry your meat using your preferred jerky making method.
  6. Jerky will be finished when it bends and cracks, but does not break in half. Allow to cool for several hours before storing in an air tight container.
