    mmm beef jerky. I'd be interested in hearing about how it is made. Does it always require lots of salt?

    I'll post some recipes when I wake up, im way to tired to look through my cooking notebooks right now. Some of them don't have or need salt Silkie.

    I've made this before with good results. If salt is a concern, remember the soy sauce and Worcestershire pack a wallop of sodium.

    Approximately a 3 pound round steak, well trimmed. Fat will go rancid and cause rapid spoilage. Slice with the grain for chewy jerky. Slice across the grain for a more brittle jerky.

    3/4 cup soy sauce
    1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
    1 T. of rub (recipe follows)
    1 T. garlic powder
    1 T. onion powder
    1 T. chili powder
    black pepper

    Marinate overnight. Drain, blot dry, then place on racks in the oven. Set oven at lowest setting and keep the door ajar slightly to allow evaporation. Depending on thickness, could take about 6 hours. Or use a dehydrator if you have one.

    Rub Recipe

    2 T. Lawry's salt (or your favorite seasoned salt)
    2 T. sugar (white or brown)
    1 T. chili powder
    2 T. paprika
    1 T. onion powder
    1 T. garlic powder
    black pepper
