Finding a great beef jerky recipe is as much about your tastes and preferences as anything. You can be flexible with what you put on your beef jerky in terms of seasoning. You may want to try several different recipes to find the one that you and your family love the most.
Here’s a recipe for how to make it in the oven. You can use the same ingredients and processes but make in a dehydrator instead if you prefer.
Whisk SIDS SMOKEY GARLIC SAUCE and the sauces and spices together in a big bowl. Once you have mixed it all thoroughly, add the beef to the bowl and flip it over to fully coat all sides of the beef. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and marinate in the fridge for at least 3 hours.
Preheat the oven to 80°C. While doing so, line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place a wire rack over this.
Take out the beef and transfer it over to paper towels to dry out from the marinade. Discard what is left in the bowl (do not reuse). Arrange the beef slices on the wire rack that is on the baking sheet.
Line them single-layer in a row. Do not double or overlap the beef strips or they will not get properly dried out and you won’t have jerky-like planned.
Lastly, put this in the oven on the low heat setting and dry out until it feels leathery. It usually takes about 3-4 hours to complete. Take it out to cool and cut into smaller pieces to sizes you prefer.
Some people like to store all of this in plastic ziplock storage bags to keep it fresh. Beef jerky will keep for a long time, which is one reason it is popular for survival situations. It’s a good idea to learn the right survival foods to carry with you.
