Awesome Beef Jerky

We LOVE beef jerky in my house!! Everyone from Daisy (the dog) to Arya loves to snack on jerky. It is so expensive to buy so, I like to make it a lot to save money. I have a food dehydrator but, I think it can be dried in the oven. This recipe is for regular flavor beef jerky. I am working on a lemon pepper and a hot flavor that I will post later if they taste any good!

Beef Jerky - Regular Flavor

1 c. soy sauce
1 c. Worcestershire sauce
1 t. garlic powder
1 t. pepper
1 t. onion powder or salt
2-3 lbs. thinly sliced meat. I used "stir fry meat" but London broil works well also.

Mix all marinade ingredients in a large ziplock bag. Add meat and let marinade for 3-4 hours. Place meat in dehydrator and set to high. Dehydrate meat for 4-8 hours depending on how "tough" you like it and how thick your jerky is.

Jerky makes a great gift! You can place it in a quart sized mason jar with a pretty tag or in a ziplock bag with a pretty sticker tag.
