Beef Jerky Marinade Recipes
Marinades perfect for all kinds of jerky
Not all beef jerky is prepared the same but one thing most of them have in common, is the fact that they use a marinade before cooking or drying their strips of jerky. The right beef jerky marinade can make or break your jerky so you may want to try one of these recipes if you are looking for something new and different to try. Most marinades are prepared the same, just mix your ingredients together and prepare to coat the meat with it. However, some recipes will call for you to heat the marinade or even let it sit by itself for several hours before putting it on the meat itself.
It doesn’t matter if you smoke, dehydrate or oven bake your beef jerky just as long as the beef jerky marinade goes perfectly with the meat. Try out one of these several marinade recipes next time you whip up a batch of jerky. Each recipe covers about 2-4 pounds of beef jerky so you may need to alter them if you need more/less.
