Oven-Dried Beef Jerky
Beef jerky is a fun snack to make at home. Keeps well in an airtight container. Great for hiking or camping.
1 pound flank steak
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 cloves large garlic, crushed
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
- Put flank steak in the freezer for about 30 minutes, or until firm, but pliable. Slice the steak very thinly across the grain, about 1/8-inch thick. Or, ask your butcher to do it for you when you purchase the meat.
- In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, honey, lemon juice, garlic, worcestershire sauce, onion powder, salt and ground black pepper. Mix well and combine with meat and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
- Preheat oven to 180°F.
- Place meat on a wire rack on a baking sheet and bake for 12 hours, or until meat is dried (it should bend, but not snap).
- Store in an airtight container when cool.
