Welcome all! Papa G here. Today I present how to make beef jerky low carbohydrate of
course. We’re gonna compare two different drying methods; a standard home oven and
a portable dehydrator. We’ll see which is better or how much each way may differ.
It all begins with the meat prep and the marinade, so let’s get started.
We’re gonna be using top round steak for our jerky. Feel free to use flank steak if
you’d like. You can trim this any way you like. I like cutting it in thin strips,
then cutting it in half, as prepping will increase their size. Cut the sides of a
plastic freezer bag and lay it flat. Place two or three pieces in the middle
of the bag, and with the kitchen hammer pound flat until thin. You should result in pieces
that are about 1/8 of an inch thick. This will decrease the time it takes to dry.
Once our meat is prepped, we’ll start on our marinade. I like using a one gallon freezer
bag for this; its thickness allows for it to stand on its own. Add 10 ounces of soy
sauce; a 10 ounce bottle of Worcestershire sauce; now add some ground black pepper;
just a bit of liquid smoke; some cayenne pepper; red pepper flakes; garlic powder;
onion powder; and now add some non-caloric sweetener, equal to about 4
teaspoons of regular sugar. We’ll finish off with some smoked paprika. Seal
securely and give it a mix. Now reopen and add the meat, one slice at a time.
This will ensure each slice will be coated.
Now remove as much air as you can and reseal once again. You’ll want to let
this marinate in the refrigerator for at least three hours to overnight.
Once our beef has had a chance to marinade, remove from the bag and place
on a paper towel to drain. Cover and press with more paper towels; soaking up
as much of the moisture as possible. Now we’re ready to start the drying process.
For our oven batch, we’ll be using a baking rack. We want as much as the top
and bottom of the surface exposed as much as possible. Place the slices of beef on the
rack, being sure you don’t overcrowd. Now place in an oven heated to 170 degrees.
For our dehydrator batch, we’ll be using my nesco FD-75 I received for
Father’s Day. Place the meat in the dehydrator just as we did on the baking rack;
being sure not to overcrowd and we’ll wait. After three and a half hours, we’ll
remove the beef, first from the oven, and then from the dehydrator. Now we’ll
compare the two. These on the left are from the oven. The ones on the right are
from the dehydrator. The oven batch is dry and leathery. It looks good. Ones on
the right, also dry and leathery. I think both pass the jerky test. Not really much
significant difference here. Pretty much equal when all is said and done.
Not having a dehydrator is no excuse for not making jerky. As for storage. if it isn’t
gobbled up within a day, it’ll last about three weeks if kept in a cool dry environment.
There you have it folks! Homemade beef
jerky, with and without a dehydrator. A great low carbohydrate snack. I hope you enjoyed
