Suggested Equipment




  • 1+ pounds Classic Beef Jerky: Eye of Round Top Round, Bottom Round, Flank Steak, Top Sirloin


  • 10 oz bottle of Kikkoman Teriyaki
  • 1 Cup Soy Sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Liquid Smoke
  • 3 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Kikkoman Wasabi Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Brown Sugar
  • 2 tablespoon Jalapeno Mustard You could minsc up a jalapeno and add to mustard you already have


Slicing the Meat

  • Key: Make sure you slice against the grain. Look at which way you see the long intramuscular strains running. The cuts need to be cutting the long strains and not running along the strains. Which ends up keeping the strains straight long lines.
  • You do not want to slice the meat too thick. Shoot for around a ¼ inch. This will help with even dehydrating times.

Dehydrating the Meat

  • Layout the Beef on each dehydrator tray and add a healthy amount of fresh cracked black pepper to each side. Be careful the meat isn't overlaying one another. You do not want to have an overloaded dehydrator due to uneven cook times.
