Spicy Jerky with Frank's RedHot

You have probably seen their commercials while watching your favorite show. The most recent one I can think of is an older lady telling a young guy "Frank's RedHot, I put that shit on everything!" Ha! You don't forget a commercial like that. Great advertising. Of course it is television and the word shit is bleeped out. Still great advertising...

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp liquid smoke Mesquite
  • 1 tsp cracked black pepper
  • 4 tbsp Frank's RedHot
  • 1/4 cup water



  1. Pick a lean cut of beef and trim all visible fat. After trimming the fat, place the meat in the freezer for an hour or two to partially freeze. If purchasing already sliced beef, skip steps the freezing process as it is only used for large cuts of beef.
  2. While the meat is in the freezer, combine and mix the soy sauce, worcestershire, liquid smoke, black pepper, Frank's RedHot, and water in a medium size bowl or ziplock bag.
  3. Remove meat from the freezer and slice against the grain between ⅛" - ¼" in thickness. If using already sliced beef, cut into thin strips against the grain at about an inch wide. 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 when making this batch of jerky.
