Well Hello Internet!
i decided to take on a new project of making delicious homemade Beef Jerky!
this was the first time, and i think it turned out pretty good, although a little salty.
here’s what i did:
i used an organic grass-fed sirloin tip steak from Herondale Farm
i cut this into strips that were fairly thin.
for the marinade:
hot sesame oil
i marinated the steak for 24 hours in this.
after 24 hours, i took the steak out of the marinade, and i put some dry spices on for a dry rub (this is where i used too much salt, so if you do this, be careful with the salt.
the dry rub:
herbs de provence
after i put the beef strips in this to give a little coating i put them on racks in the oven at 150°. i let it stay in there for about 3 hours. or basically until it became jerky. some of the pieces were finished a little before, because they were smaller, and some took a little longer, so you have to keep your eye on it.
all in all its pretty good! but this is something i’m definitely going to keep working on. different marinades etc!
mm mm delicious!
