Blue Ribbon Beef Jerky Recipe

Blue Ribbon Beef Jerky
1/2 cup dark soy sauce
2 Tbs Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp monosodium glutamate (optional)
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp powdered ginger
1/4 tsp Chinese Five-Spice Powder
3 lbs lean beef brisket, eye-of-round or flank steak,
trimmed completely of fat and cut across grain into
slices 1/8 inch thick*

Blend all ingredients except meat in small bowl. Dip each piece of meat into marinade, coating well. Place in shallow dish. Pour remaining marinade over top, cover and refrigerate overnight.

Oven method: Preheat oven to lowest setting (preferably 110 F). Place several layers of paper towels on baking sheets. Arrange meat in single layer on prepared sheets and cover with additional toweling. Flatten meat with rolling pin. Discard towels and set meat directly on oven racks. Let dry 8 to 12 hours (depending on temperature of oven).

Dehydrator method: Arrange meat on trays in single layer and dehydrate 10 to 12 hours, depending on thickness.

Store jerky in plastic bags or in tightly covered containers in cool, dry area.

*To aid in slicing meat thinly, freeze until ice crystals are formed.
