If you need a go-to deer jerky recipe...then look no further. Ingredients: 2-3 lbs of Deer Steak or Roast 2/3 cup Worcestershire sauce 2/3 cup soy sauce (spend the $7 on a good bottle of real soy sauce) 1 T honey 2 t ground black pepper 2 t onion powder 1 t garlic powder 1 t liquid smoke 1 t red pepper flakes Dehydrator Wisk together all of the ingredients for the marinade... Thaw your deer steaks until they are still partially frozen. Remove all fat and sinew from vension and slice steaks into 1/8" to 1/4" or so strips... Marinate the strips for 4 hours in the refrigerator... Drain the strips of venison from the marinade, pat dry with a paper towel and arrange them on your dehydrator trays. Set your dehydrator at 160F and let it go for 4-8 hours. It all depends on how thick/thin your strips are. Keep checking every 30 minutes after the first 3 or 4 hours. Enjoy! This marinade is sweet and a little spicy. Nothing crazy or over the top. Just a good tasting, traditional take on jerky.
