How To Make (delicious) AngusPure Beef Jerky

If you’re into the whole noble ideal of nose-to-tail eating, which is using as much of the animal as possible, then you should be a jerky fan. Jerky is designed to use those lean cuts usually found in the hindquarter, that are usually a little tougher and definitely not conducive to cooking up as a rare steak.

The time it takes to dry out the jerky depends on many factors, include humidity, thickness of cut, marinade etc. Generally, it will take between 8-10 hours, but if you’re in doubt leave it in a little longer. It’s always better to err on the side of dryness.

Because of the length of the marinade and cook time, I usually prepare the beef right before bed, then get it in the dehydrator first thing in the morning.

 

Ingredients
1 kg AngusPure beef eye of round - BUY ONLINE
Marinade Ingredients:
1/4 cup soy sauce
3 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp black pepper
2 tsp salt
1 tbsp fresh coriander seed, crushed
1/4 cup water

 

Instructions
Place the meat in the freezer to firm for about an hour. This will make it easier to cut.
Using a sharp knife, cut the meat into thin strips no thicker than 1/4 inch.
Place strips into large zip-lock bag.
Add all marinade ingredients in a bowl and stir to combine. Add mixture to meat, ensuring all pieces are well coated. Place bag in fridge.
You should marinade 6-8 hours but not too much longer.
After marinading, work one piece at a time, patting it dry with a paper towel then layering it in the dehydrator.
Turn the machine on, and allow to dehydrate until done. This process may take anywhere between 6-10 hours.
As an optional but recommended finishing step, arrange finished jerky on a baking sheet, and place in a preheated oven (135C) for ten minutes.
Allow jerky to cool, then place in a zip-lock bag if you're planning to eat within a week or so, otherwise you can vacuum seal batches of it and store it in the freezer for up to two months.
