THE BEST beef jerky EVER!! THE BEST beef jerky EVER!!
Number of Servings: 16


    3 1/4 lb. Bottom Round Beef Roast
    (makes about 2 lbs. dried jerky)
    7 Tbsp. Red Vinegar (or Balsamic?)
    3 1/2 Tbsp Lemon Juice
    12 1/4 Tbsp Teriyaki
    3 1/2 Tbsp Ketchup
    7 tsp Dark Brown Sugar
    7 Tbsp Maple Syrup (or Trader Joe's Maple Agave)
    2 5/8 Tbsp Onion Flakes
    3 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
    3 1/2 tsp Garlic, chopped or pressed
    1 3/4 tsp Kosher Salt
    1 3/4 tsp Pepper (or White Pepper)
    1 3/4 Tbsp Soy Sauce
    5 1/4 Tbsp Steak Sauce or Russell's BBQ Sauce
    3 1/2 tsp Liquid Smoke


Mix all ingredients except meat in a large bowl. Slice meat very thin with a meat slicer, removing any fat or gristle. Place meat in marinade and mix well with hands. Let sit for a bit to let flavor soak in. Spread meat slices on dehydrator trays. Set dehydrator to 160-degrees. Jerky will take about 7 hours, but check every hour or so and remove any pieces that are done, and rearrange trays as needed.

One 3 1/4 lb. roast will yield approx. 2 lb. of dried jerky.

Serving Size: Makes about 16 2 oz. servings (~ 3 large pcs = ~ 2 oz)

Number of Servings: 16

  • Incredible!
    This is an outstanding recipe. I have used it several times now. I did add a bit of wasabi paste to give it a bit of a kick. - 3/20/15
