Beef Jerky from the Amish Country


So the husband adores beef jerky. Sometimes I think all of my money goes to buy beef jerky. Seriously. I’m not even joking. I have that dead serious, you gotta believe me look on my face right now. It makes me wonder if any other family has a beef jerky addict? When I recently visited Lancaster, PA I bought an Amish cookbook at one of the farms we visited. In this cookbook was this beef jerky recipe. I decided to try it. Hubby really liked it. This came from the cookbook the Lapp family has compiled.

1/4 cup soy sauce

1 teaspoon ground pepper

1 teaspoon seasoned salt

3/4 cup water

2 teaspoon garlic salt OR 1 teaspoon garlic powder

Mix together all the ingredients. This is your brine. Soak meat overnight in the brine. Preheat oven to 200 degrees and lay your meat spaced apart on a cookie sheet. Cook for 2 hours on each side. If your meat is thin, you can do 1 1/2 hours per side.
