Step 1: Ingredients
Soy or terriaki sauce,
Paprika or Cayenne,
Montreal steak spice or seasoning salt.
Mix it all together and taste it to see if you like the flavour.
Mix all ingredients into a bowl or ziplock bag.
Make enough marinade to fully soak or submerge the amount of beef you bought.
Step 2: Add the Beef
Cut any fat pieces from the beef as fat can go rancid.
Add the beef into the bowl so that the marinade is almost or fully submerging the beef.
Step 3: Let the Beef Sit for at Least 4 Hours
Cover with plastic wrap and let it marinate in the fridge. You can check on the beef ever couple of hours and try to massage it to help tenderise it and help more flavour seep in.
Step 4: Slice the Beef Into Strips
Pat dry the beef and slice it in to strips.
Then but it on a bakers tray lined with tin foil.
Step 5: Set Oven to 165° F
Step 6: Put the Beef in the Oven
Keep the door of the oven open a crack. You can use a wooden spoon to do this.
Check on the jerky every 30 mins. Pat dry any oil or fat that accumulates. YOU MAY HAVE TO DRAIN THE TRAY*
Now wait for 1 - 3 hours depending on the cut of the meat.
Step 7: Flip the Beef
Usually an hour in (or your halfway point in your cook time) flip the beef so that the other side gets heated well.
Step 8: Done!
Seal them in a mason jar or ziplock bag!
Hope you enjoy!
