Homemade Organic Beef Jerky

The original recipe is from Deliciously Organic and she used her oven to dehydrate the meat.

This is what you need:

  • 1 lb. organic grass-fed brisket,organic grass-fed skirt steak or organic grass-fed bottom round (beef)
  • 1/4 cup Nama Shoyu (organic fermented soy sauce)
  • 3 Tbsp. light local honey (such as clover)
  • 3/4 tsp. organic granulated garlic
  • 3/4 tsp. organic ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

This is how I do it:

  1. Place the meat in the freezer for 3o minutes (this makes the meat easier to slice).
  2. Remove meat from the freezer and slice into 1/4 inch-thick slices.
  3. Place the meat slices in a large baking dish (such as an 11 x 7 inch pan or a bowl works, too).
  4. Whisk Nama Shoyu, honey, garlic, ginger and black pepper in a small bowl.
  5. Pour sauce over meat, cover and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 6 to 8 hours (overnight works, too).
  6. Remove the meat from the marinade and pat dry.
  7. Arrange beef on the racks allowing 1/4 inch space between each slice.
  8. Bake until the jerky is firm and almost completely dry but still chewy.  (This took a day or two in our dehydrator.)
  9. Enjoy!
