Tips Use lean cuts of beef for making jerky. I really like flank steak, but eye of round or top or bottom round are also good options and a little more economical.
Slice the beef as thin as possible. For tender jerky, slice meat against the grain; for chewier, slice with the grain. Freezing steak for a few hours allows you to slice it very thinly.
