1 ½ -2lbs lean boneless meat (any kind)
½ cup soy sauce
1tbs worchestershire sauce
¼ tsp white or black pepper
¼ tsp garlic power
1tsp hickory smoked salt
Combine all the ingredients into a sandwich bag. Take the meat, and remove all fat from the edge, then cut it into 1/8 inch thick strips. Add the meat to the bag, and mix the marinade into the meat really well. Let stand for 6 hrs to overnight in the refrigerator. Dry in oven or dehydrator at lowest setting for 6-10 hours (or until dried all the way through). Once done cool and store in airtight bag.
A word from Lady Arawyn:
I like jerky with teriyaki favoring. So I took ¼ cup of teriyaki and ¼ of soy sauce to the mixture. It made a great teriyaki favor, but was a tad bit salty, so I suggest to cut the sodium by using liquid hickory smoke favoring instant of the salt kind.
I have also discovered that the jerky gets tastier the longer it sits in the frig. Yum!
