Wal-Mart used to sell a great seasoning pack for beef jerky. I haven't made it in years so I'm not sure if they still do. But, you mix it with 98% lean ground beef and press them into strips. It doesn't have near the grease and turns out wonderful.

Wish I had gotten custody of my dehydrator. Now you have me wanting homemade jerky again.

"I've wiped the excess grease off the meat"

There is something dirty about that sentence.

The trick is to use extremely lean meat AND trim the fat from it. You want no fat at all if it is possible. It really messes up the taste. For a really interesting flavor take some onion and garlic and puree it (very well) in a blender. Just brush it on the meat when you start drying.

I *really* tried to read this post as it was intended, but the SUV of my thoughts kept swerving into the gutter.

Anyway, Machelle should get some Clan Points for pointing out how dirty this post is :-)
