Number of Servings: 55


    2 lbs. lean ground beef
    1/3 cup Liquid Aminos
    2 tsp salt
    1 tsp garlic powder
    1 tsp onion powder
    1/2 tsp ginger
    3/4 tsp chili powder
    1/2 tsp ground pepper
    1 tsp smoked paprika


*It is important to use your hands and not a spoon or other utensil.

After 4 hours I removed the strips and dried them with paper towel then transferred it to my small convection oven and cooked for another 2 hours.


Mix all ingredients well with *hands, really making sure you have worked the meat.

Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, but can go as long as you want.

Place parchment sheet on the counter place the meat in a ball and flatten out with your hands. Place another sheet on top and roll the meat out until it is 1/8" thick. Use a pizza cutter and cut the meat into 2-3" strips. Place these on a couple of parchment lined baking sheets, leaving space between strips.

Put these into a pre-heated 200 oven. Place a wooden spoon in the door to keep it open and cook until the meat is thoroughly dried. This could be anywhere from 4-6 hours.

If you have a convection oven use it, it will keep the air flowing which is what you really need if you are not using a food dehydrator.
