Scotch BBQ Smoked Beef Jerky

Beef Jerky

We love beef jerky here at Great Northern Larder. It is tasty and healthy and makes a great snack on long hikes or car journeys. Use good beef and your favourite beer (or try soy sauce or teriyaki). Beef jerky will last a few weeks in the fridge.

Ingredients 

Round beef, flank steak, or any lean cut of beef. For jerky, you want to avoid marbling as fat will go rancid.

Scotch BBQ Sauce

A bottle of beer

Salt and pepper

Method 

Cut the beef into thin strips - make sure you cut against the grain for the best texture.

Marinate the beef overnight in salt, beer, and a bottle of Scotch BBQ

Preheat your smoker, bbq, or oven to its lowest heat setting ("smoke" for a smoker, about 50C for an oven).

Pepper the jerky generously

Smoke or cook on low heat for about 5 hours.

When the jerky is ready it should be dry but not too tough.
