Here is a down home favorite for making jerky. You can use venison or beef, and a food dehydrator or oven to dry. This jerky is easy to make and really tastes great. If you like to make your own jerky then give my recipe for homemade redneck beef jerky a try! Before you get started making this jerky recipe, here is a list of ingredients you will need:
- 10 pounds of lean beef or venison.
- 1 bottle soy sauce

Once you have all of the ingredients combine in a bowl. Remove any excess fat from the meat and cut meat into strips. Cover the strips in the ingredients in the bowl. Make sure there is enough liquid to cover the meat. Cover meat in the bowl and refirgerate 24 to 48 hours, stirring occasionally.
Set the oven to 160 degrees and preheat. In the meantime cover cooking sheets with aluminum foil and place the meat so that the pieces do not touch. Dry meat for 6 hours, or until dry. before you know it you will be enjoying your very own home made jerky. If you like my recipe or have another jerky recipe to share, let me know!
