Kitchen Resolution: Homemade Beef Jerky

Our food dehydrator has officially been  broken in. Got this recipe from the “Jam It, Pickle It, Cure It” cookbook. My sister and I had planned to have a “jerky-off” (classy) when we came up to visit…but I totally left mine in the fridge.


1 pound skirt steak

1 tbsp kosher salt

1 tbsp soy sauce

2 tsp dark brown sugar

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 tsp red pepper flakes

1 tsp black pepper

Cut all the fat from your skirt steak (fat doesn’t cure). Pound meat as thin as you can.

Toss meat with remaining ingredients. Place on a rack over a cookie sheet and refrigerate for 24 hours.

Place in food dehydrator for 8-10 hours. Allow to cool.
