 Ingredients List

  • Lean round steak; trimmed of
  • -fat
  • Garlic powder; to taste
  • Black pepper; to taste


After trimming meat, slice into strips the thickness of the steak (about
1/2") and about 1/2" wide. LIGHTLY sprinkle with garlic powder and black
pepper. Lay strips over the oven rack. Set oven to bake at lowest
temperature around 120 degrees. Prop oven door open slightly. After
about 12 hours, raise heat to about 145 degrees for another 12 hours, still
leaving door ajar. These directions are for making jerky in Houston, Texas
where it is quite humid. In more arid locations, the time will be shorter.
Finished product with be ugly, brown-to-black, but GOOD!

NOTES : This is Ross's trail version of jerky. Its purpose is to provide
high nourishment that is tasty and light weight and requires no
refrigeration. Note that it has no salt and few spices. Salty and spicy
food cause increased thirst which is not what you want on the trail. This
is a real switch for Ross as he prefers spicy food, but it is perfect for
hiking trips.
