Dry Cure Southwest Jerky Recipe

southwest beef jerky


1 ts Salt
1 ts Pepper
1/2 ts Cayenne pepper
3 tb Chili powder
2 ts Cumin
2 Cloves garlic minced
2 lb Steak sliced thinly


Combine ingredients and thoroughly mix together. This is a dry marinade so there is no liquid. Sprinkle the spice mixture on the meat slices and work into the grain with your fingers.

Cover and marinate overnight. Place trays in the oven and dry at 145'F. for first 4 hrs. then set oven 130'F. until dry.(4 to 8 hrs.) Jerky should be hard but not brittle. Blot up any fat that appears with paper towels.

*For a chewy texture, slice the meat with the grain, or across the grain for more tender jerky.
