I bought myself a food dehydrator this last spring intending to use it for the most part for the extra fruits and herbs I grow but my husband asked me to try to make some jerkey since he loves it and the store bought stuff is so expensive. I searched for a recipe to try and came across this one. Don't bother with heating the liquids and sugar or seasoning the meat w/dry ingredients, just mix everything except the meat in a bowl and stir well, the sugar dissolves really easily and you don't have to wait for the marinade to cool down. I didn't use the worcestershire sauce because it has fish ingredients and instead used extra teriyaki sauce and balsalmic vinegar and we love garlic so I used and extra 1/2 tsp. Let me tell you it was a hit! On my second batch I used a tiny bit more onion powder, black pepper and red pepper flakes than called for so we could have a bit more heat to balance the sweet. I've made this a dozen times now and have given it out as gifts, made it to take camping and sent some with my husband to work and everybody who's tried it has raved about it. The recipe makes way more liquid than needed for 1lb of meat, I've used this recipe to marinade 3lb of beef and it was fine. Put the marinade in a large ziplock bag, or divide between two depending on how much meat you have, squeeze out the air and let marinade over night for the most flavorful jerkey you've ever had. I not going to bother searching for another jerkey recipe, this is a keeper!
