From Scratch Jerky Recipes?

9 posts in this topic

Anyone got a good one to share for venison? I have tried most of the pre-packaged ones and they vary from ok to good. I tinker with them but still havent found "great".

Looking for something kind of sweet with some heat also. If I have a good base recipe I can alter it to sweet and hot though...

Thanks...

Heres what I do. Equal parts Soy Sauce, Teriyaki and Worcestershire sauce. Make enough to cover meat your making add some cayenne to your desired heat level. Soak it over night. After you lay it on the dehydrater or rack in the oven/smoker sprinkle a little bit of salt, you dont need much, theres quite a bit in the three sauces. Tastes exactly like the beef jerky you buy in stores.

Enjoy

My girlfriend makes a killer marinade thats great on steaks, so I'm gonna try it out for jerky. 2 cups apple cider vinegar, 1/4 to 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup coarse mustard (or more to taste), and black pepper to taste. Good stuff.

I also like equal parts worcestershire, soy, with some lime juice and brown sugar or honey. Can't go wrong with that one

Here's my brother's recipe. It's one of my favorites.

1/4 C. Soy Sauce

1/4 C. Worchestershire Sauce

1 t. Onion Powder

1/2 t. Garlic Powder

1/2 t. Black Pepper

1/4 t. Ceyenne Pepper

1 to 1-1/2 lbs. sliced meat

 

Thoroughly mix all ingredients except the meat. Add the meat to mixture coating well. Let soak overnight for best penetration. For even better penetration, use a vacuum sealer and soak the meat overnight, kneading the package every so often.

Sprinkle extra black pepper after placing on drying racks. Dry until desired tenderness.

I like to slice the meat about 1/4" - 3/8" thick, diagonally across the grain. Slicing with the grain can make the jerky too chewy, especially if you haven't completely removed the silver membrane from the meat. Cutting perpendicular to the grain isn't chewy enough to be called jerky. But that's just my opinion.

Edit: I didn't notice the part about you wanting something sweeter. Perhaps you could just add a little brown sugar and to the mix. It'll give it more of a barbeque flavor I suppose.

I've used a very similar recipe. Great point about removing the fascia. Cutting off any membranes is definitely key. While we're at it, what's everybody's preferred cut of meat to use? I'm using the round this year

Thanks for the ideas all, keep em comming...

BobT - A buddy gave me a very similar recipe that he says is awesome, only diff is his has some ketchup in it...

I usually make my jerky out of what we call the "front roast". Its the chunk that would be the thigh. If your patient and have some knife skills its a nice cut. The main chunk can be sectioned into three pieces then the silver skin removed...

Ketchup...Hmm... I'll reserve judgement 'til I give it a try.

    • You almost need to put a guy in his face and play the rest of the PK 4 on 3.
    • About time!!! Stalock on his way up...hope they play him soon.
    •   Tiger meat on a cracker is delicious.    Yes, "may". I don't have a link to his page and I haven't been to it in years so I have no idea.I'll admit that I'm more than likely wrong and just jaded from years of working in internet marketing but I'm not gullible enough to take the word of random internet peeps. Do you have a link to his page so I can verify?
    • Also check out "straw bale gardening".  
    •   My folks liked them.  The Hubbards are large and the flesh is quite thick.   Plants in late april is jumping the gun.  Liable to freeze, even with global warming.   reasonable chance of frost there until middle of may.  You want the dirt to be warm, so think of them like tomatoes or cucumbers.   seeds rot in cold soil.    frost kills plants
    • Speaking of desperate snowflakes...... check this out.   Can't wait for the hearings on Cspan.... Legogate.   Or maybe batgate....   (no I have no idea of the credibility of "heatstreet" so read at your own risk) (owned by dow jones, so part of the mainstream media at least sort of) https://heatst.com/politics/democrats-to-investigate-after-trump-official-makes-lego-batman-joke/  
    •   I doubt it.  Its hard to go back and even if you did most of the damage has already been done.  Besides it would be admitting failure, not many people like to do that and I've seen no evidence that ownership believes it did fail  Perhaps to them it didn't, with 2 sites they might be taking in more money now due to more ad spots to sell.  Although the question is longevity, do ad dollars start to suffer as users leave and content dwindles?  For awhile its not hard to pump up the stats and make the site look good to advertisers with number of visits and page views, etc.  However, if an advertiser looked at the site for themselves its easy to see all the sub forums that haven't had a new post in months or that most of the views and clicks are coming from threads with Trump in the title.   Forums as a whole are also LONG past their prime and are quickly fading out.  Facebook groups and other social media are taking over.  Why log into many different forums when you can simply log in to facebook and have everything right there along with all of your real world connections?  Advertisers are likely to be focusing more of their ad dollars on the platform as time goes by.

    • The pipeline being built is a good thing. Gutting regulation for the sake of gutting regulation is stupid - and that seems to be his tactic. Some regulations are necessary. The "illegal flow" had been declining for years; attributing the continuation of that arc to Trump isn't really sensible. 
    •  Ooh landed that one in 4 minutes.     P.S. Of course you haven't yelled at me you only go after the defenseless.  We all know how bullies work.
