Instructions
  1. Place meat in a zip-top bag and freeze for 1-2 hours to firm up the meat for cutting.
  2. Slice the meat against the grain into 1/8 inch - 1/4 inch strips.
  3. Mix remaining ingredients in a zip-top bag, then add steak and coat well. Marinate in the refrigerator for 3-6 hours.
  4. Remove the meat and pat dry. Divide the steak strips onto the cooking trays in an even layer.
  5. Place the drip pan in the bottom of the cooking chamber and insert one cooking tray in the top-most position and one tray in the middle position.
  6. Using the display panel, select DEHYDRATE, then adjust the temperature to 160 degrees and the time to 3 hours, then touch START.
  7. At 1.5 hours, switch the trays.
  8. When the Dehydrate program is nearly complete, test a piece of jerky by bending it at a 90-degree angle.
  9. If any moisture seeps out, return for an additional 20-30 minutes. If it bends, but there is no moisture seepage, it is done. If it cracks and breaks, it is overdone.

    Tasted good but lacking salt because I used low sodium soy sauce. I had to add salt and doubled the honey in my marinade to the rest of the beef and it was perfect. We used 3 lbs of round beef from Costco.

    Excellent! Jerky was perfect using this recipe. I marinated the first batch overnight. I marinated the second batch for 3 hours while waiting for the first batch to finish. The longer marinade was better so in future I’ll marinate a greater quantity of beef overnight. Also, I got my local butcher to cut the meat for me. I don’t think i could have cut it so evenly.
