    Venison Jerky

    VENISON JERKY

    A great tasting snack to take hunting...if you can stop yourself from eating it all beforehand. Got this from a guy in america and tweaked a bit to my taste. It's a good idea to use a foil oven liner to catch any drips during drying = happy wife!

    1 kg venison steak
    cup soy sauce
    cup Worcestershire sauce
    1 tsp liquid smoke
    tsp garlic powder
    1 tsp onion powder
    1 tsp salt
    tsp pepper
    tsp fresh crushed garlic
    tsp chili powder
    tsp cracked pepper
    1 Tbs ground coriander


    Trim away all fat and sinew from meat. Slice meat into 4mm thick strips – cutting along the grain, not through. Place meat into zip-lock plastic bag.

    Mix all other ingredients and pour over meat. Let out the air and seal bag. Refrigerate for 12-48 hours. Mix contents of bag once or twice while marinating.

    Drain off and excess liquid. Hang meat from oven racks using toothpicks. Set oven to around 70 C until done. May take 3 - 8 hours depending on temperature and thickness of slices. Let cool before putting in bag or jar for storage. I like it at the point where it cracks but doesn't snap.

    I got my liquid smoke (hickory) from these guys: Nelson Naturally

    p.s: if you take it bush make sure you hide it from your mates as it has a tendency to magically 'evapourate' whilst you're away from camp!

    Backsteak is awesome but the wife complains about me using all the good meat for jerky, leg works fine - topside or silverside sliced with the grain.

    not sure if they have a shop mate I just bought it off the web, a small bottle lasts ages as you don't use much. There are other brands about too, think I've even seen some in the Napier mitre10 mega.

    It is orsum mate. I've never actually smoked the meat in a smoker I just use the hickory smoke extract - much easier. The oven can do a nice big batch of meat in one hit. I haven't got a dehydrator but the oven on low works suprisingly well and because the meat is hanging the juices tend to drip off - I'm picking you'd have to lay them flat in a dehydrator?

    Yeah lying it down isnt ideal. I have dried Biltong in it as well. Will make a biltong box one of these days.
