YUM jerky ! AND..the BEST part? for my new approach to eating, I am tweaking ALL my fave recipes to be KETO FRIENDLY 😉
For the Jerky:
We bought a nice hunk of scotch filet..(as they call it here in AU) In the states,
I think a “London broil” type would be AWESOME!) after looking up cuts of meat..
because the names of the cuts are TOTALLY different than home
“Bottom Round Roast” seems to be the winner lol they have that here,
as well as in the States;-)
ANYWAY we just made 1Kg ( 2.2 pounds) and this a roughly the measurements..
1 K or 2 lbs or Steak – about 1 ½ to 2 inches thickness
Put a steak into the freezer for like 10 min ( while you make the marinade)
This helps firm up the meat and make it really easy to slice –
The Marinade ( to taste 😉 we like SPICY so added more peppers 😉
Tamari (or soy sauce) – 3/4 cup
****Ketoliscious Worcestershire 3/4 cup ( recipe below 😉 )
Onion Powder – 1 TBS
Garlic Powder – 1 TBS
Ground Peppercorn – 1 TBS
Red Pepper Flakes – 1 TBS
For a steak cut into slices that are 1/8th to ¼ inch wide (slice with the grain)
For a roast cut into 1 ½ to 2 inch slabs- then cut into 1/8th to ¼ inch slices
Place the slices into the marinade and let sit at least 4 hours (up to
24 hours in the refrigerator)
Set up your grill(s) for indirect heat on a gas grill only heat the far side,
and on a charcoal grill -hot coals on one side of the grill and no
coals on the other side of the grill
You’re looking for a grill temperature of 140 to 150 degrees F
We used our gas grill for some, our little charcoal grill for some,(
LEAST fave way, we transferred to gas grill after 2 hrs..)
we also used our oven for some strips..( heated it to 68C (150F) Low – slow heat
just to see which worked best.. we prefer the gas grill to all.. but
the oven will work nicely, and
really good for winter time for you guys freezing in the States 😉
Take Jerky slices from the marinade and dry them REALLY WELL with paper towels
Place the jerky slices on the side of the grill with no coals for low
and slow indirect cooking
and in the oven, also on a rack, just in the center
You are looking at a cook time of 4-5 hours, you will know. try REALLY
hard to just let them cook
for the 4 hours.. ours on the grill were done first at about 4 and a
half.. the oven ones we let go till 5..
Then, we put them in a paper bag, and stored in our dark pantry, for a
day- but now we store in the refrigerator 😉
******(Keto-Liscious- Worcestershire ****** 😉
it’s REALLY good! key being it’s sugar free-
this below ended up being the amount to use for the jerky 😉
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
2 TBS water
2 TBS Tamari sauce
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp mustard powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper
Smoked paprika to taste
Hot sauce to taste, (optional) check the ingredients! and chose a
Combine all the ingredients ( all to your taste, i guessed on the
amounts, use your palate 😉
ANYWAY…in a saucepan, combine and slowly bring to a boil stirring frequently.
Let simmer for about 10 min for the flavors to develop, cool down. If
storing, store in fridge.
Should I use 3/4 cup of Tamari OR 3/4 cup Ketoliscious Worcestershire?
Or should I use 3/4 cup of both? Thank you!
Hi, it is 3/4 cup of EACH of Tamari , AND the worcestershire (made with recipe listed below it ) IT IS REALLY GREAT JERKY!
