    If you live near a kroger they have a sesame ginger marinade and its our favorite for beef jerky! You do need to marinade it overnight for most effective flavor but its so worth it! So good! We make big batches of it in our dehydrator and its gone so quickly, mainly because of me! Lol

    Try some Maple syrup in it, it's good! My recipe is similar to your's except I never thought of smoked Paprika, nice touch! I use Montreal steak spice from Club House in mine and some mustard, but the Worcestershire sauce is the bomb and yes I use garlic powder and some onion powder and black pepper. Sometimes I throw some seasoning salt in there too which has been a recent addition.

    Aside from the soy sauce + w. sauce where's the salt? I don't think this will keep very long at all.

    • Kristopher Taylor
      Kristopher Taylor Month ago

      Stavi_Deluxe soy sauce alone would provide more than enough sodium to adequately cure beef sliced to a shaved level of thinness. Adding Worcestershire sauce takes the salt level over the top - this particular jerky will last at least two months in any container, and without any preservatives.

It's his B-Day party tomorrow and I'm always making a huge batch for him as one of the presents )) It's marinating right now and the smell is wonderful as always. I do pork jerky by this recipe too and it is just as good! Thank you so much for sharing it and happy Easter! :)

    I am a little puzzled here. I recently made salmon jerky for 8 hours at 75 C. Turned out great. But everywhere I look I see beef jerky at only 3-4 hours. I would have thought beef required significantly more not less time than a piece of salmon O.O
