The Ultimate Beef Jerky Recipe
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
- 2 teaspoons liquid smoke flavoring
- 1 1/2 tablespoons steak seasoning rub
- 1 (1 1/2-pound) London broil roast, thinly sliced along the grain
step 1: Combine the soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, liquid smoke and steak seasoning in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool.
step 2: Pour the marinade into a glass or plastic bowl and add the meat slices. Stir to coat and then cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days. Turn or stir occasionally to marinate the meat evenly.
step 3: Preheat the oven to 175 degrees F (80 degrees C). Arrange the beef strips on a wire rack set over a baking sheet. If you like, you can sprinkle a little more steak seasoning on it at this point.
step 4: Bake for 60 to 90 minutes in the preheated oven, until dry but still pliable. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
