Hey, all you jerky enthusiasts! Doug here from jerky.com, and today we're exploring a classic, mouthwatering jerky recipe that you'll adore: A1 Steak Sauce Beef Jerky. We're using a few simple ingredients along with pre-sliced eye of round to craft an incredible, savory delight that will tantalize your taste buds.
Now...i know, some people are steak snobs and they look down their noses at "steak sauces". But...I'm not a steak sauce shamer. I can appreciate a wide range of ways to eat steak and I don't think there is a wrong way to eat a steak! Actually, getting your steak well-done should be a crime.😂...but other than that, you do you!
So, if you love A1 Steak Sauce...or, at the very least, if you love good, basic, no-frills, savory flavors...you are going to want to give this beef jerky recipe a try.
With all that being said...Let's get jerkin'!
2 lbs. pre-sliced eye of round
1/2 cup A1 Steak Sauce
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons liquid smoke
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
First, let's mix up our A1 marinade. In a bowl, combine A1 Steak Sauce, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, liquid smoke, salt, and pepper. Aim for a well-blended consistency that ensures an even coating on the meat.
Now, let's talk meat! We're using pre-sliced eye of round, which, in my opinion, is top-notch. If you think there's a better cut for this recipe, let me know in the comments. For this recipe, we need about 2 lbs of eye of round.
Make sure to separate the pre-sliced eye of round, so that every square inch of the meat gets covered in the mixture. Take an extra minute or two to peel them all apart—this ensures everything gets thoroughly mixed.
Pour the A1 marinade over the meat, and let's get mixing! Mix it up real good, making sure every piece gets coated with that savory marinade. Remember, making fantastic jerky is all about consistency—in the slices and the flavor.
Once your meat is well-coated, seal the container tight and toss it in the fridge for 24 to 48 hours. The longer it marinates, the more that flavor soaks in, and the tastier it gets!
After marinating, take the meat out of the fridge and arrange it on your dehydrator trays. The amount of Rackspace you need depends on your meat cut, but with eye of round, you'll probably end up using about three trays for 2 lbs.
Fire up your dehydrator, setting it to 140 degrees Fahrenheit. Start checking it after about four and a half hours. You can expect the runtime to be around five hours for this recipe.
Once your A1 Steak Sauce beef jerky is done, let it cool down. It might turn out slightly on the drier side, but that's normal. The final product will have that unmistakable A1 flavor with a delicious, savory kick!
Honestly, this A1 Steak Sauce beef jerky is crazy good and super easy to make. If you're a fan of A1 or if you're into savory flavor profiles, give this recipe a go.
