Reviewed Beef Jerky
"Excellent recipe for jerky. I first made this when the show aired originally and I keep coming back to it despite trying numerous other recipes.
Also, I used this exact recipe for 5 pounds of beef instead of 2. Same measurements, everything. It worked great except there wasn't enough red pepper. I soaked it for 6 hours in a bowl with the meat pushed down so the liquid as over it, rotated a few times during marinade, and dried it and I didn't have a bunch of leftover marinade, the beef soaked it up.
When I first made this I used the fan method described. It worked fine but after 2 batches it ruined my fan. I would recommend using screen door screens that you can buy in rolls at the hardware store for 2 bucks and fashioning a rack of some kind. I used an old foldable laundry drying rack with the screens stretched across the dowels and semi folded so they're close together
The main problem with this recipe is that I end up eating 3 pounds of jerky in a day or two
