  • Tape 2 paint stir sticks 2 inches apart on a flat work surface. Cover with a large piece of plastic wrap. Place a golfball-sized piece of turkey mixture between the sticks. Cover with another piece of plastic wrap. Roll turkey mixture into a thin strip using a rolling pin. Transfer strip to a dehydrator tray. Repeat with remaining turkey mixture.

  • Dehydrate at 160 degrees F (70 degrees C) until thoroughly dried, 5 to 8 hours.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute other types of ground meat for the turkey if desired.

You can also pipe mixture using a jerky gun.

If you want you can sprinkle more pepper, red peppers flakes, minced garlic, or seasoning of your choice over strips in step 2, but cover back up with plastic wrap and gently rub in.

This was a real waste of 1 1/2 lbs of ground turkey. It was very bland and did not taste like a jerky anyone would eat. Read More
