Making your own turkey or beef jerky is easy, delicious, less expensive, and you know what you're eating!
1 Pounds Organic Beef Round Steak or Turkey Breast Tenders (1 to 1 1/2)
1/4 Cup Tamari
1 Lime or Lemon, juiced
1/2 Tsp. Onion Powder
1/4 Tsp. Garlic Powder
1/4 Teaspoon Ginger Powder
1/4 Tsp. Black Pepper
1/4 Teaspoon Sea Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (or Chipotle Powder, if you want It to have a bit more kick)
- Trim and discard all fat from the meat. Cut into strips approximately 5 inches long and 1/2 inch wide.
- In a large, resealable plastic bag, combine the remaining ingredients. Add the meat to the bag, seal bag, and toss to coat. Refrigerate and let marinate for 8 hours or overnight.
- Drain and discard the marinade. Put the meat in a dehydrator (if you have one) or on wire racks with a foil-lined baking sheet underneath. Arrange meat strips 1/4 inch apart on racks.
- Bake uncovered at 200 degrees for 6 to 7 hours, or until meat is dry and leathery. Remove from oven; cool completely. Refrigerate or freeze in an airtight container.
