Beef jerky is a wonderful snack, it is healthy, lasts a long time, and is relatively easy to make.
Mix all the ingredients in a large glass container. I prefer a rectangle Pyrex baking dish with a lid.
Add the sliced beef to the marinade. See the slicing instructions below.
Marinate for at least 8 hours. I have marinated my beef for as much as 48 hours. The longer it marinates, the stronger the flavor of the jerky. My recommendation is to start with about a 24 marination and adjust according to taste.
Place the slices of marinated beef on your dehydrator drying racks. Be sure to remove excess marinade from the slices. I simply run my fingers along the strips to remove the liquid. The more liquid that stays on the beef, the stronger the flavor and bigger the mess in the dehydrator. Too much liquid left on the beef will be a detriment to flavor and the cleanliness of your dehydrator. You can go as far as rinsing and drying the beef with a paper towel.
Dehydrate the beef at 155 degrees for 6-8 hours. This is dependent upon the climate and size of your beef slices.
