Homemade Beef Jerky
October 09, 2016

Oh goodness. This was soo good. Didn't change anything the first time, except I had a 3lb eye of round. This was more than enough marinade for 3lbs of meat. The second time, I added 2 homegrown jalapeños, which added a nice, but not overpowering, kick. Instead of doing this on a cookie sheet and wire rack, which is awful to clean, you can hang the pieces with toothpicks or bamboo skewers from the top oven rack. Be sure to line the bottom oven rack with aluminum foil to catch drips. Make sure none of the meat is touching other pieces or folded on itself, it wont dry with the rest. And wedging the oven door open with a wooden spoon helps with drying time.
