This is a fun and easy project that you can do with the kids. I tried his recipe for the marinade but came up with my own after the first batch as Lex' recipe was a little on the bland side for me. http://www.traditionaltx.us/ Melbo’s Jerky Marinade Per 2 pounds Eye of Round. I have the butcher slice a couple of Eye of Rounds in 1/4 “ slices after trimming ALL the fat off. Fat will go rancid, dried muscle will not. This recipe is for 2 LB. and I usually do 8 LB so multiply this x 4 and split the marinade into 2 large Ziplocs. ½ cup Teriyaki sauce ¼ cup Soy Sauce 2 T Worcestershire sauce 1 T Liquid Smoke 1 tsp. Tabasco 3 Minced or crushed cloves of Garlic 2 ½ tsp. onion powder 2 tsp. hot chili powder 2 T Garlic powder 2 tsp. ground ginger 1 tsp. cayenne 2 T Crushed red pepper 1 tsp. each salt & black pepper Mix all ingredients in bowl. Place strips of beef in large Ziploc bag and pour marinade into bag. Close and massage to make sure everything is coated and place in refrigerator overnight. Dry beef using your preferred method and enjoy. .
