Introduction: Steak Flavored Beef Jerky
3-1/2 lbs London Broil
1-12oz can Cherry Coke
1 TBSP Montreal Steak Seasoning
(Grind in a grinder or mortar)
1 TBSP Kroger Steak Seasoning (concentrate liquid)
75-100 turns on a McCormick Black Peppercorn Grinder
(Using the medium-size setting. We used a lot of pepper, We are pepper lovers!)
Open Country Dehydrating machine w/8 trays. (This is what we used)
Step 1: Marinade
We asked our butcher to remove fat and meat should be sliced to the thickness of bacon slices. You can slice your London Broil to the thickness you prefer. the thicker it is the longer it will take to dehydrate.
add 1 12oz can of cherry coke
add 1 TBSP of Kroger Steak Seasoning liquid
In a mortar, grind Montreal Steak Seasoning until finely crushed. we ground up 1 TBSP of this seasoning.
add fresh cracked black peppercorn. add for flavor, we love pepper and we use a lot. roughly 75-100 turns on the pepper grinder.
Mix all ingredients well and marinate to your desired time. We marinated this meat for 24 hrs.
Step 2: Dehydrate
Place beef strips in dehydrator machine (this will use approx 8 trays) once meat is placed on trays you can add more pepper(if desired for pepper flavor) and then pat down the pepper into the meat, OTHERWISE lots of pepper flakes will fall off, once they are bagged.
Cooking time varies on the thickness of the meat and the number of trays you use. We dehydrated this meat at 165 degrees for 5 hours rotating two trays at a time from top to bottom every hour.
Step 3: ENJOY...
bag up your Jerky and store all the bags in a large Tupperware container kept in the refrigerator. I read that Jerky has a short shelf life if you do not use preservatives, so only make what you plan to eat within two weeks or share it with some friends.
