|Beef jerky I made in the dehydrator.|
I went to Rural King, and purchased some Backwoods Jerky Seasoning in original and hickory flavor. I have to tell you that the directions weren't very clear and I had to call my friends Jason and Lori to decipher them for me. Basically, I used the entire package for four pounds of ground meat.
I used my newly purchased "jerky gun" to make the jerky mixture into strips and put on the dehydrator. I know that not everyone uses the jerky gun, but it was a lot easier to use it than to do this all by hand. My dehydrator came with a timer, so I set it for 10 hours.
When I woke up the next morning, this is what my beef jerky looked like. I wiped each strip of jerky off with a paper towel and to my surprise, there was very little grease. I broke the long pieces in half and stored all of the jerky in an air tight container. Needless to say, the first batch went quickly.
