  • cup white wine pinot
  • cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoon black pepper course
  • 2 teaspoon liquid smoke applewood



  • 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. Visit my page on slicing jerky for more information. You can also use a Weston Jerky Slicer when making this recipe.
  • Add sliced beef to the mixture in a ziplock bag or bowl and marinate for 6-24 hours in the refrigerator.
  • After the meat has finished marinating, remove from refrigerator and strain excess marinade and pat dry the beef strips with paper towels
  • Dry with your favorite jerky making method. I used my Excalibur Dehydrator and dried for 3 hours at 165F and 1 hour at 145F.
  • The jerky is finished when it bends and cracks, but does not break in half.


Old Pro Tips:

  • Switch apple liquid smoke out for hickory or mesquite to suit your desired flavor
  • I used a Pinot wine, but any white wine will work well
  • Use Prague Powder #1 to increase the shelf life of the jerky and help kill any bacteria
  • Slice strips at ¼" thickness for a good jerky feel
