Nesco®'s Favorite Jerky Marinade - Dehydrator

You can make jerky marinades with many different seasonings. Here's one of our favorites. Feel free to change or substitute ingredients to your taste. Delete the cayenne pepper, if you don't like spicy foods.

Spicy Teriyaki Jerky

3 pounds sliced rump roast, cut into 1/8" to 1/4" thick strips
3 packets Nesco/American Harvest® Original jerky spice
2 packets Nesco/American Harvest® jerky cure
1 cup teriyaki sauce
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup Worcestershire® sauce
2 Tbsp garlic powder
2 Tbsp onion powder
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 Tbsp Nesco® Savory Kitchen Blend (

Thoroughly mix all seasonings in a blender (or by hand). Put meat and marinade sauce in a sealed storage bag and mix completely. Marinate and refrigerate for 8 to 24 hours. Turn bag to coat meat evenly.

Place meat on Nesco® Dehydrator trays and dry at highest temperature setting for 6 to 12 hours, or until done. Makes 1½ to 2 pounds of jerky when dried.

Note: For spicier jerky, use Nesco®/American Harvest® new Hot & Spicy jerky spice!
