Sweet and Spicy Venison Jerky
September 01, 2016

Delicious jerky! We like everything extra spicy, so I added 3 tbsp of sriracha sauce and a good sprinkling of hot pepper flakes. Decided to reduce the teriyaki sauce and sugar by two. My dehydrator manual instructs "For food safety, to help insure any bacteria present is destroyed, post treatment of meat after dehydrating is required. Heat oven to 275 F. Line a large baking sheet with foil. Place jerky in a single layer, leaving a small space around each peace. Bake for 10 -12 minutes. Cool completely on wire rack. Pat jerky dry with paper towels to remove any surface fats before storing." I have never followed the step before today, because I worried that it would over dry the meat. I decided to take the extra precaution because I am pregnant. The jerky was wonderful. I will alway use this extra step now, just to be extra safe.
