How to make it

  • 1. Mix all of the marinade ingredients together in a bowl.
  • 2. Cut the meat or fish as indicated above.
  • 3. Put the meat or fish in a resalable plastic bag & add the marinade.
  • 4. For fish, put this in the fridge for four hours. Give it a wiggle now and then to mix things up. Fish will take up the marinade much faster than meat.
  • 5. For meat, this can go in the fridge for 8 – 12 hours. Give it a wiggle now and then to mix things up.
  • 6. When the meat or fish has finished marinating, place on a rack or in a colander in the sink to drain.
  • 7. Place the strips on the bamboo or steel skewers. Be sure the strips are not touching.
  • 8. Place each skewer in the Jerky Maker. As you add each skewer make sure the strips are not touching.
  • 9. Close up the box, turn on the light and tap the keg.
  • How long it will take for the jerky to be ready depends on several things.
  • 1. How thick you cut the strips.
  • 2. The ambient temperature of where the Jerky Maker lives.
  • 3. The humidity of your location.
  • 4. How dry you like your jerky.
  • I’ve never had a batch of meat take less than 8 hours. In general, you want to make the slices as uniform as possible. The width of the strips is not as important as the thickness.
  • When the jerky is ready, let it cool a bit, put it in resealable plastic bags & enjoy.

    Now I Love This - I Love JERKY - I Do Have A Dehydrator...But I Do Not Have The Jerky Maker - As Shown in This Recipe. Will It Turn Out The Same If I Use My Dehydrator? (Giggling - Yes I Am Blonde - But with Some Intelligence)
