  1. In a small bowl or cup, mix together the onion powder, garlic powder, and some cracked black pepper. Season the meat lightly, using only part of the mixture. Reserve the remaining spices. Place into an airtight plastic container or bowl, and refrigerate.
  2. In a saucepan over medium heat, mix together the brown sugar, soy sauce, teriyaki sauce, Worcestershire sauce, balsamic vinegar, liquid smoke flavoring and pineapple juice. Heat until the brown sugar has completely dissolved. Refrigerate marinade until cool.
  3. Pour cooled marinade over the seasoned meat, and mix by hand to coat. Seal the bowl, and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
  4. Arrange the beef strips on the rack of a dehydrator, and sprinkle with a little bit more of the spice mixture and red pepper flakes if using. Dry for 5 hours, or to your desired dryness.

Followed this recipe to a 'T,' which I believe is necessary to rate it properly. Absolutely perfect 'as is,' no changes to the ingredients. Just a suggestion for prep -- there's no need to marin...

This was not good! I'm not sure how it got such high reviews. I followed the recipe exactly. The end result was slightly sticky jerky with a caramelized coating. It was more of "spicy beef candy...

Excellent stuff! I improvised slightly: first, I got home and realized I had no brown sugar. I did, however, have Sweet & Low Brown (brown sugar substitute). I used the recommended conversion a...

My husband used venison instead of beef. It turned out great, although I didn't read the instructions thoroughly and mixed together all the ingredients listed. I didn't cook the marinade in a ...

Parents have an organic farm and we got a half a cow for Christmas... there's no way between the two of us we can eat that much meat, so I recently purchased a dehydrator and this is the first r...

This was so yummy. I've made it twice in the past month. I tried to follow the exact recipe but had a problem with the onion powder in my cupboard. I ended up using minced onion, it was delic...

If you don't have a food dehydrator, this can be made in the oven too. Just lay the meat on cooling racks on top of foil-lined baking sheets and bake on 150 degrees for 5-6 hours. Open the door...

The jerky was perfect! I tried the marinade with turkey legs and chicken thighs and YUM! The meat melts off the bones! I'm making it again today and I'm going to fill my smoker with chicken, ...

customized this to 12 servings and had a quart of marinaide too much. overall tasted good but could not tell if pineapple juice was there or not.

This can easily be the best jerky that you have ever tasted. Necessary changes: marinate at least 24 hours in the fridge, and use too much marinade (too little will leave too little flavor). A f...
