Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Whisk together the soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, cranberry-grape juice, teriyaki sauce, hot sauce, steak sauce, brown sugar, and black pepper in a bowl, and pour into a resealable plastic bag. Add the flank steak, coat with the marinade, squeeze out excess air, and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for 8 to 10 hours.

  • Remove the flank steak from the marinade and wipe off the excess. Place the flank steak onto the wire racks of the smoker. It is ok if the meat is touching, but to not stack.

  • Place the racks into a smoker, and smoke according to manufacturer's directions, using 4 pans of wood chips (1 pan per hour) until the jerky has dried and will break when bent, 6 to 8 hours.

If you like a sweeter jerky you might like this. I prefer a more "store-bought" jerky taste. Read More

Awesome Jerky Marinade! The flavors meld well together. Its a little sweet a little smokey and a little spicy. We are very discriminating and this is our family's favorite. We marinate london broil overnight and put in food dehydrator the following day. Read More

Great flavor but not perfect... Here's what I learned for next time: 1. We marinated for 24 hours provided excellent flavor to the meat 2. Used skirt steak worked well 3. Some of my slices were too thin-- turned out crispy and had to throw out 4. Would go for 1/3-1/2" slices they turned out meatier and excellent 5. The recipe states to wipe off the marinade- we didn't do this some of our pieces had a glaze on the meat that burned I would recommend doing this for sure 6. Would go low on the smoker heat 175ish. We smoked at 200 for 4 hours and they were done. Next time will do 175 for longer. 7. Used Applewood which was great Read More

This was the first thing I made in my electric smoker and it was AMAZING! I sliced the meat a little too thick (rookie mistake), but it still didn't last more than 2 hours with just me eating it and I'm not even a big guy. It's not as sweet as you might think, it has just the right blend of flavors. The steak sauce is key! I used A1 and hickory wood chips, smoked at 160 degrees. I will never buy beef jerky again and am going to be making this again this weekend, I am even going to make twice the amount. This is an amazing recipe! Read More
