Corned Beef Jerky
This Corned Beef Jerky is an easy and awesome way to make jerky at home. You don't need any fancy marinades or seasonings to make this. Smoke and corned beef come together for the perfect jerky.
- 2-3 pound corned beef roast
Turn on your dehydrator of choice. Preheat your smoker, oven (with the door cracked), or dehydrator to run at around 170 degrees F.
Slice the beef. Using a sharp knife, thinly slice your corned beef.
Dehydrate the corned beef. Transfer the strips to the grill grate, jerky rack, or cooling rack. Smoke/cook for 2-3 hours (depending on the thickness of your slices, some thicker pieces can take 4-5 hours). Check often after the first hour to be sure your jerky is drying evenly. You are looking for jerky that is firm and still slightly pliable, but not soft. If you bend your jerky and it breaks, you've cooked it a little too long.
Steam. Place the finished jerky in a gallon zip top bag while it is still warm. Don't close the seal all the way. The jerky will steam in the bag slightly and this step will make the jerky moist. Store in the refrigerator for 2-3 weeks.
