Ready for this very simple recipe? Here we go;
Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: (dehydrate) 7-8 hours
This is the tool (gun) that I use to make this jerky. I bought it many years ago at Walmart, but it's readily available online. It comes with two attachments, the flat end for the actual strip jerky, and a smaller one that you can make beef sticks.
2lbs ground beef (I used the 93/7% ratio)
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp onion powder
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/4 cup Teriyaki sauce
2 tbsp soy sauce (I used sodium reduced)
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
-In your stand up mixer bowl, add your meat and spices along with sauces. Mix on medium high for 3-5 minutes, or till the ground beef is almost like a dough. If you don't have a stand up mixer, I would stomp my feet and refuse to cook till someone bought me one. However, if you don't have one, just knead the ground beef till it's uniform in consistency. Place in refrigerator and let the flavors marry for about half an hour.
See what I mean by dough like, how uniform it is?
2lbs of ground beef used up 4 racks of the dehydrator, which is standard.
-Place your dehydrator on jerky setting and let that baby go to work!
-After about 7 hours, check for doneness. I like to take it out after about 7-1/2hrs. I like it crisp, obviously, but not like paper. Quick, grab a couple before the kids come in the kitchen! What?
Till next time!!
