Honey Lemon Beef Jerky

Recipe for Honey Lemon Beef Jerky
Gregory Syroney


1 Beef Roast
1 Tablespoon of Minced Garlic (In a Jar)
1/3 Cup of Honey
1/3 Cup of Lemon Juice
1/2 Teaspoon of Black Pepper
1/2 Teaspoon of Salt
1/3 Cup of Soy Sauce


Put the beef roast in the freezer for about an hour after you purchased it.

Then after one hour, slice it in to ¼” thick slices across the grain.

While the beef roast is in the freezer, combine the Garlic, Honey, Lemon, Black Pepper, Salt, and Soy Sauce in a Lock & Lock Bowl (plastic container that’s got a leak-proof lid).

Marinate the strips in this sauce for 12 hours (I do mine overnight).

Then, the next morning, place the strips on your Food Dehydrator Racks, place the Racks on the Food Dehydrator, and place the lid on top.

Every hour, jut make sure you rotate the racks, so that the Beef Jerky gets equal time during the process of dehydrating.

It takes about 12 Hours for the Beef Jerky to be ready to eat.


Makes about 30 slices.

Hi, Pamela. You can make beef jerky in your oven easily. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F and line a jelly-roll pan (or baking sheet with sides) with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Place a rack (like you would use for cooling cookies) on top of the pan. When you remove the beef strips from the marinade, pat them dry and place on the rack. Cook for about 4 hours (will depend on thickness of beef strips). Enjoy!
