A top of the line beef jerky that can be done in just 12 hours. Sliced rump roast marinated in soy sauce, brown sugar, and liquid smoke then dried in a dehydrator for 12 hours.
INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):
- 3 pounds rump roast
- 3 cups soy sauce
- 3 cups packed brown sugar
- 4 fluid ounces hickory-flavored liquid smoke
Slice roast into slabs approximately 1/4 inch thick, (Note: you can have this done at the grocery store or butcher). Trim off all of the fat from the edges. Cut the slabs into pencil-like strips (about 1/4 inch wide), and about 4 inches long.
In a large bowl, combine the soy sauce, brown sugar and hickory-flavored liquid smoke; blend well. Place all of the meat into the bowl of marinade. Cover and place in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
Place the meat in a food dehydrator for about 12 to 20 hours, depending how dry you like your jerky. Rotate the trays after 6 hours. For example: Bottom tray on top, top tray on bottom, second tray from bottom to be second tray from top, and so on.
