Simply Sweet Jerky

This simply sweet jerky recipe will have you munching ALL DAY LONG! Even though sugar is not healthy and my wife always tells me to not eat it, I can't stop when it comes to jerky. I love using sugar in beef jerky recipes, it just gives them that savory flavor that I yearn for.

Ingredients

Marinade

  • 1/4 cup worcestershire
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp sea salt

Optional

Instructions

  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 worcestershire, red wine vinegar, soy sauce, brown sugar, and salt in a medium size bowl or ziplock bag. Mix well.
  3. Remove the meat from the freezer and slice ΒΌ" strips against the grain. Slice with the grain if you want a chewier jerky. Or skip the freezing phase and use a Jerky Slicer for evenly sliced strips.
  4. Add sliced beef to the mixture and marinate for 6-24 hours in the refrigerator.
  5. After the meat has finished marinating, remove from refrigerator and pat dry with paper towels.
  6. Dry with your favorite jerky making method. A dehydrator was used with this recipe and dried for 5 hours at 160 degrees.
