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.
