Chewy Jerky Marinade

Jerky is one of my favorite snacks of all time. If you’re looking for a little extra kick, try this recipe!


Look at the beautiful spices on this meat! It looks like it’s store-bought, but without the unnecessary sugar.  I ran the numbers for the recipe with both the balsamic ketchup and the sugar-free ketchup.

Don’t panic when you see the carbohydrate amounts, either. I’ve only calculated for the entire batch (each recipe covers roughly a pound of steak).


Fantastique! Enjoy enjoy enjoy!


Chewy Jerky Marinade

2 Tbsp Coconut Aminos (or soy sauce)
1 Tbsp Balsamic Ketchup (or regular or reduced sugar ketchup)
1 Tbsp Virgin Olive Oil
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp fresh milled pepper

Combine ingredients. Smooth onto pounded steak with a barbecue brush. Place in a bag for 3-24 hours to marinate. Dry in a dehydrator until the meat is bendy-crisp.

Makes enough jerky for 2 large slices of steak pounded flat (about a pound).
