How to make spicy homemade beef jerky.

  1. Combine 2 cups of soy sauce, 1/4 cup of brown sugar, 1/4 cup of honey, 1/4 cup of Worcestershire sauce, 2 tbsp of garlic powder, 2 tbsp of onion powder, 1 tbsp of ground black pepper, and 1/4 cup of your favorite hot sauce in a large mixing bowl. Stir until well combined.

  2. Cut 1 lb of lean beef (such as round or sirloin) into thin strips, about 1/4 inch thick. Place the strips in a shallow dish and pour the marinade over the top, making sure to coat all of the strips evenly. Cover the dish and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight.

  3. Preheat your oven to 175 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

  4. Remove the beef strips from the marinade and pat dry with paper towels. Arrange the strips on the prepared baking sheet in a single layer, making sure not to overlap them.

  5. Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for 4-6 hours, or until the jerky is dry and slightly crispy. Check on the jerky every hour or so and rotate the baking sheet for even drying.

  6. Once the jerky is finished, let it cool completely before storing in an airtight container. The spicy beef jerky will keep for up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator or up to 3 months in the freezer. Enjoy!
