Homemade Beef Jerky

We love beef jerky in our home and we tend to make it weekly. It's really easy to do and MUCH MUCH cheaper than buying it in the store. You do NOT need a food dehydrator to do it either. Because we make it so often we did invest in a food dehydrator, but again it is certainly not required.

You will need:
a large beef roast (sliced- you can slice it yourself or have the butcher do it for you)
1 cup soy sauce
3/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1 T red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp liquid smoke
1/2 tsp Cayenne pepper
1 tsp black pepper
3 T honey
3T maple syrup
a pinch of garlic powder

Place your sliced beef into the mixture of marinade and let set for a MAXIMUM of 15 minutes (if you leave it in the marinade longer the taste will be incredibly strong)

Lay the beef out on a cookie sheet and place in the oven at the lowest temperature setting (usually 125-150 degrees F) and leave over night. The beef will dehydrate and dry up by morning and you will be left with some awesome homemade beef jerky. Enjoy!
