    I got a pork loin and part is going to become Jerky, and I don't feel like going out to get any thing special, so I plan to use what I have on hand, which I'd like to think I have enough grasp of what I'm doing you guys can verify the mariande won't be horrid.

    1/4 cup Red Wine.
    1/8th cup Worschertise.
    1/8th cup Seaseme Oil.
    1 Tablespoon Brown Sugar.
    2 Tablespoons Black Pepper.
    2 Tsp Onion Powder
    2 Tsp Garlic Powder.
    1/2 Tsp Salt
    1/4th Tsp Prague Powder 1

    I am aiming for a fairly easy mixture to use with pork loin. I figured I'd mix and bag this after supper and let it sit till saturday morning to smoke/try to smoke. <Weather dependent, I might use the oven>.

    Does any one see any glaring problems? This is for a 'pound' but I already know in effect, if the liquid covers the jerky, you don't need to make the exact amount again per pound.

    I do have soy sauce, but I am curious if I can not use it...

    TKRFV, IMHO I don't see any ingredients that clash with one another except maybe the wine????. I would skip that and look in the cupboard for some crushed red pepper or a bit of cayenne pepper.

    Drink the red wine and forgo the sesame oil (very strong flavoring even in small doses)

    Do add in soy equal to the "Worschertise" sauce, maybe a squirt of honey and some ground Jalapeno, Habanero or Ghost Peppers. Or all 3.

    Also quintuple the recipe as 1 pound of wet meat for jerky is hardly worth effort

    I was going to use the wine because Bear's pork loin jerky uses it, and that stuff always comes out good. But..he uses white, and all I got to hand is red, and I'm curious how red works out.


    I normally 2.5x for 3-4 pounds of meat. As long as the liquid can cover it, it's all you need. I know seaseme oil is strong, it's one of my favourite seasonings to use. I use it -alot- lol!

    Red wine will just darken the color but no noticeable taste difference from using White...JJ

    The wind kept throwing temps about, at one point I thought it might be done, took a chunk out, tore into it..aaaand spat half of it on the ground. I'm not sure if it wasn't actually cooked, but had th emouth feel. I think my dog found that bit before the snow rolled in.

    I hilariously even went 'Hey Dad, think lemon juice would be good?' He even said he wanted to try that. I even put the lemon juice out..and utterly forgot to add the lemon juice.

    It's peppery..a very good aroma from the red wine. I think I need to cut out my seaseme oil from jerky entirely though. It tends to make them all have a similiar taste.

    Sesame is very assertive. The Koreans add it to most dishes. I would stick to using it in Asian influenced jerky recipes like a Char Siu jerky with Hoisin and Five Spice. Or Korean Bulgogi jerky with fruit, Soy Sauce and lots of sweetener. It is fun to experiment...JJ
