  1. Place beef strips on a solid, level surface. Firmly pound beef with the tenderizing side of a meat mallet until the meat fibers are slightly broken but the strips still hold their shape.
  2. Mix Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, brown sugar, onion powder, garlic powder, black pepper, liquid smoke, cayenne pepper, and coriander seeds in a large bowl until brown sugar has dissolved.
  3. Place beef strips into the bowl; add enough water to allow marinade to cover the meat. Stir to incorporate water and submerge the beef in marinade, cover the bowl, and refrigerate for 24 hours.
  4. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  5. Remove beef strips from marinade, shake off excess, and lay the strips onto oven-proof racks. Do not overlap the strips.
  6. Bake the beef strips in the preheated oven until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest strip reads at least 150 degrees F (65 degrees C).
  7. Remove strips from oven and place onto racks of a food dehydrator so the strips don't overlap.
  8. If desired, sprinkle strips with more coriander seeds and black pepper.
  9. Turn on the dehydrator, set machine's temperature for 155 degrees F (70 degrees C), and dry the jerky until leathery, about 9 hours. Rotate the racks from top to bottom every 1 1/2 hours for even drying. A piece of jerky should crack but not break in half when folded. Store in refrigerator.

When I submitted this recipe step 6 was not included. I use only my dehydrater for drying and not the oven, this is why the time may be shorter.

Most helpful critical review

no changes, will not do this one again just because it was too peppery for my liking. Could try it with less pepper.

Very good but a bit too sweet for my taste. Will make again but alter the sugar quantity and really lay on the pepper next time.

Definitely a keeper recipe! I didn't use the coriander as I didn't have any. I'm not sure if that would have changed anything about the taste much. We will be making this recipe often! Thank...
