  • 3 tablespoon prepared horseradish
  • cup white vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon curing salt optional


  • Trim all visible fat from the beef and place in freezer for an hour or two to partially freeze.
  • While the meat is in the freezer, combine marinade ingredients in a bowl or ziplock bag and mix well.
  • Remove the meat from the freezer and slice ¼" strips against the grain for an easy chew. Cut with the grain for a more chewy jerky.
  • Add sliced beef to the mixture in a ziplock bag or bowl and marinate for 8-24 hours in the refrigerator.
  • After the meat has finished marinating, remove from refrigerator and strain excess marinade in a colander and pat dry with paper towels.
  • Dry with your favorite jerky making method. I used myExcalibur Dehydrator and dried for 4 hours at 165F.
  • The jerky is finished when it bends and cracks, but does not break in half.
