Adirondack~Um you don't happen to have
a recipe for that great smell in your house???

And do you use a dehydrator or the regular oven??

And how do you get your meat slices sliced???

I have always wanted to make my own,
but never did.....

[wayey] Hi! Jerky freak here!!! [Big Grin]

Heres how I do mine...I bought a cheap 20 dollar dehydrator from Walmart. It has 3 trays....Love it!

I usually get brisket...stick it in the freezer so its about 1/2 frozen. Then with a really sharp knife, slice it 1/8". It will thaw quick. Toss it in a bowl with some soy sauce. Then lay the slices on the dehydrator tray and shake on some black pepper. It usually takes about 5 hours.

My recipe is pretty basic...but its SO YUMMY! I use the liquid aminos from the health food store (thats my soy sauce, tastes just like it) and its healthier.

I'd love some new jerky recipes!

Everyone around here lives for Deer camp...so all of the jerky I make is from deer meat and it is wonderful! You can do it in the oven or the dehydrator. We eat quite a bit of deer meat. A lot of people say they don't like it, but if you know how to cook it yu really can't tell a lot of difference. It is a much more lean meat than beef. But, just wanted to add that it makes a wonderful jerky!

I love deer meat, better than beef actaully. I do not have a good jerky receipe, so I have yet to try making that. But I do love venison.

My wife has me spoiled. I grew up as a country boy and stayed that way for 54 years.We have been hunting deer with the same 5 guys for a good number of years, and we harvest enough venison for our families. I don't care much about trophy bucks, even though I have taken a few over the years.What is important to me is how the deer is handled imediately after the harvest. Proper field dressing, get it home, hung, and skinned as quick as possible.
The temperature decides how long it hangs.I quarter the deer in my shop, including sawing the spine. Then I bring the quarters to my wife and she does 90% of the butchering, and does a very professional job of it.The bride decides what cuts she wants and I do the vacuum sealing. Over the year we have developed a great way of doing the ribs instead of trying to strip them.I do a short rib cut, chime the backbone and then chink it.When it come time to use them we marinade them in large zip-lock bags for a day or two. Then I slow cook them in my smoker cooker with fruit wood. For ease of eating I then cut every rib and put them on the table. I am making myself hungry!

I would kill for some deer meat. We never get game in Los Angeles. Do you guys sell it? Can it be shipped?

I really love game...all the game I've had, that is. I made a killer Venison stew when I visited my sister in Oregon.

If you ever want to sell any, please put me on your list!

My husband goes first season in So Illinois. He is only allowed 2, one of each. thats it. I get it when it comes back from the butcher, he does an excellent job of cuttin it.
He is very picky about his deer, he does all the propers for field dressing and has retained a cooler in case the temps are to warm. Makes double sure he maintains the temps for the ride back home.
thinkin tomorrow to do some vension lasagna. That should be very good.

Jerky marinade:

In a shallow pan add 6 oz.soy sauce, 2 teaspoons worcestershire sauce, 2 Tablespoons sugar, & a drop or two of liquid smoke ( be careful it is really strong) marinade in refrigerator 24 hours.

I have also deleted the liquid smoke and used different flavored marmalades just for something different but I reall like the old fashion flavor I get from the original recipe.

good luck.

sorry it took me so long to reply-health issues sometimes get in the way of my real life...
i usually soak mt meats in worchestershire sauce ,and a dry rub you can buy pre-mixed, i add coarse ground pepper to it.
any good marinade makes a good jerky....
i slice my own..fingers get real fearful...
and use a dehydrator with a built in fan/thermostat,set on highest 140 degrees,i believe....done when texture of leather.
hope this helps... [Wink]

Can anyone tell me how to make the 'soft' jerky?

While on vacation last year we stopped at a party store and purchased a bag of teriyaki 'soft' beef jerky and it was to die for. YUM! [thumb]

Haven't found it in any of the store's, since though. [Frown]

Thanx,

Sue Z
