Beef Jerky

Initially, the entire process of seasoning, prepping, dehydrating, and packaging the jerky may seem to be tedious, but actually, it is effortless. Fancy types of equipment are not necessary to prepare this at home. You only need the right ingredients, an oven to put the jerky in a dehydrator to dry. Within a few hours, the jerky is ready to be served! 

To make beef jerky, thinly slice the beef and add it to a bag. Add soya sauce, Worcestershire sauce, liquid smoke, honey, and some spices to this bad. Chill it for some time. Then, place the beef in the oven and cook for about 4 hours.
