Thinly slice the steak into ? inch thick strips, either with the grain (which will result in a chewier beef jerky) or against the grain (which will be more tender). I recommend popping the steak in the freezer for 15-30 minutes before slicing so that it is easier to cut. (or the butchers working behind the meat counters at most grocery stores will also do this for you if you ask.)
Transfer the strips of steak to a large ziplock bag
In a separate small mixing bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients until combined. Pour the mixture into the ziplock bag with the steak, seal the bag, and toss until the steak is evenly coated.
Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or up to 1 day.
Preheat oven to 175 F Adjust the racks to the upper middle and lower middle positions. Line 2 large baking sheets with aluminum foil, and place wire cooling racks on top of each sheet. Lay the strips our in a single layer on the wire racks.
Bake until the beef jerky is dry and firm, yet still a little bit pliable, about 4 hours, flipping the beef jerky once about halfway through. (cooking times will vary on the thickness of your meat)
Remove jerky and transfer to a sealed container. Refrigerate for up to 1 month (if it lasts that long LOL )
** Cooking time does not include the amount of time needed to marinate the beef, which can be between 30 minutes to 24 hours.
Also, the recipe yield was hard to gauge
With 2 pounds of beef, I usually yield 50 individual pieces of beef jerky. But that will totally depend on how thick the beef is sliced, and what size of strips you have.
