"Original" Beef jerky Thursday, January 01, 2015, 04:50 PM
I made another batch of ground beef jerky. I aimed for a "Classic" or "Original" recipe. I based mine off of two of Alton Browns [1, 2, local]
My adaptation was as follows. Note that this was for 1 lbs of extra-lean ground meat:
1/4 cup Worcestershire Sauce
1/4 cup Low Sodium Soy Sauce
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp Agave nectar
1/2 tsp liquid smoke
I marinated the ground beef in that over night. When I pulled it out, there was some liquid not absorbed so I drained it.
I rolled it into thicker strips than last time using a plastic chopstick as a guide. I think they were about 1/4 in. going it. I dehydrated them for about 6 hours on the hottest setting.
It worked out really well. This could very easily be my "Original" recipe. Maybe a bit lighter on the liquid since I didn't need it anyway. And more agave! I will be playing with, and modifying this one some more. I am not sure how it would need to be adapted for slices of meat instead of ground beef.
