  1. Freeze the cut of beef in the freezer for one hour then cut into thin strips.

  2. Put inside the ziplock bag all of the ingredients except the beef strips. Close the ziplock bag then shake the bag to mix the marinade.

  3. One by one put the beef strip into the ziplock together with the marinade then close the bag and shake it again to coat the beef strips with the marinade evenly.

  4. Chill the ziplock bag into the fridge for 4 hrs. or overnight.

  5. Preheat your oven to 170°F.

  6. Take your baking sheet then cover it with aluminum foil. Place the cookie rack above the baking sheet.

  7. Take the marinated beef strips out of the fridge then dry the liquid out of the beef strips by laying in a clean surface two sheets of paper towel then lay all the beef strips flat above the paper towel and cover it again with two layers of paper towel. Using your hand press down the beef strip to absorb all liquid from the beef.

  8. Lay all the beef strip on the cookie rack with a little space on each other.

  9. Bake the strips for 3-4hrs. at 170°F heat. Check the jerky every hour to make sure the temperature is maintained at 170°F.

  10. Take the jerky out of the oven then cut it to your desired shapes or consume it directly.
