This was very good. My kids love jerky and have me make it every year for vacation. I made just a couple of adjustments. I used a dehydrator and I added some tobassco sauce just to give it a bit of a kick. I shook in about 5 squirts but should have used more. I can eat it and I'm a sissy girl. My kids love it hot & spicy and really enjoy the flavor but wanted more kick. I'll try again. Anyway thanks Sara. Good job.
personally i don't like the jerky in the store but my husband does so i tried making Sara's at home and it was great. i never touch his store bought jerky but this one we share. watch your time for desired chewiness. check every hour. lots of oven time and expensive beef needed but hey thats jerky i guess. oh and dont forget red pepper flakes for heat! if ya like heat like us.
I liked parts of this recipe but I changed it up a bit. firsty I like to trim and cut the sirloin myself. So I put it in the freezer for about 45 minutes then trimed the fat and cut it into 1/4" thick strips. Then I use a meat tenderizer to pound it to about 1/8" thick. The main reason I switched from store bought was to avoid harmful things like Nitrates. I also course ground some pepper over the racks before putting in the oven. And I set the oven to about 160 degrees F. Overall I liked it.
