How to Make Beef Jerky Without a Dehydrator

If you're a fan of beef jerky but don't have a dehydrator, don't worry! You can still make delicious, homemade beef jerky right in your oven. Here's how:

First, start with a good cut of beef such as flank or sirloin. Trim off any excess fat and slice the beef into thin, even strips. Next, create your marinade. A basic marinade includes soy sauce, brown sugar, and Worcestershire sauce, but you can get creative with your own spices and flavors. Marinate the beef strips for at least 4 hours, or even overnight for extra flavor.

Preheat your oven to 175 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the marinated beef strips on the baking sheet and bake for 3-4 hours, or until the jerky is dry and chewy. Make sure to check on the jerky every hour or so and rotate the baking sheet for even drying.

Once the jerky is finished, let it cool and store it in an airtight container. It will keep for up to a week, but trust us, it won't last that long!

Making homemade beef jerky is a fun and easy way to enjoy a protein-packed snack.
