venison Jerky recipe, shhhh, its a secret!
I personally like to use my dehaydrator.
I have been making jerky this way for a long time.
this is a secret recipe so dont tell!!!!
this will do about 10# of jerky befoer drying
3 cups worchestershire sauce
3 cups soy sauce
1 cup catsup
2TB granulated Garlic
2TB onion powder
2tsp instacure #1 you can substitute the proper amount of tender quick and eliminate the salt
2TB black pepper and a tsp of jalepeno powder. (the jap powder is optional)
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1 tsp liquid smoke
mix all the dry ingredient together and mix well
combine into wet ingredients and mix well
I slice my venison partially frozen on my slicer about .25-.38 inch thick with the grain.
put in a tub or bowl and pour marinade over it and mix well
be sure to push it all down into the mixture so it is all covered
refrigerate for 24 hrs or more .
put in dehydrator wet, (do not pat dry first.) and dry until itis dry to the touch and bends like rubber but doesnt crack.
it takes about 9 hours in my unit @145*
if you over dry it a little it will usually moisten up just a bit if you ziploc bag it and refrigerate over night.
heres a few pics of my process
