Sweet Coconut Jerky

The sweetness of the coconut sugar along with the saltiness of the soy sauce blends to make this one great tasting jerky. This Sweet Coconut Jerky recipe was seen on a blog called weedemandreap, and I just had to try it. The recipe is not exactly the same, but very close. I have added the direct link to the recipe at the bottom of this page.

Instructions

  1. Wrap the sirloin steak in plastic and pound with a mallet until reaching 1/4 inch in thickness.
  2. Slice against the grain making strips about 1 inch in width. You can also use a Jerky Slicer to achieve evenly sliced strips.
  3. Combine and mix soy sauce, coconut sugar, liquid smoke, apple cider vinegar, salt, and pepper in a medium size bowl or ziplock bag.
  4. Marinate the strips of beef in the refrigerator for 6-24 hours
  5. After marinating, pat dry beef strips on paper towels to remove any excess marinade
  6. Place on dehydrator with space between beef to allow airflow
  7. Dry for 3.5 hours at 160 degrees then for another 2 hours or as needed at 90 degrees. Check meat periodically to not over dry the jerky. (pat dry jerky while cooking if needed)
  8. Jerky will be done when it bends and cracks, but does not break in half.
