Equipment (note: if you don’t have equipment, see this article on making jerky in the oven.)


  1. Slice your beef about 1/8 inch thick across the grain. (This is important as slicing with the grain will give you much tougher jerky)
  2. Combine soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, pepper, onion powder, sriracha, maple syrup, and liquid smoke together in a bowl, or large container with a lid
  3. Add sliced beef to your marinade, and stir to coat all the beef in it, then press down to try to get it all down into the marinade
  4. Cover with lid or saran wrap, and refrigerate for 8 hours, or overnight
  5. Arrange slices on dehydrator trays, and cover with lid
  6. Turn dehydrator on to 160º degrees
  7. Let dehydrate for 6-8 hours, until jerky is completely dry, but still pliable
  8. Store in an airtight container
