I am an avid Clean Eating Magazine reader. This magazine if full of top notch healthy recipes and loads of cooking tips. The magazine even has gluten free recipes. This is a win win for a clean gluten free eater such as moi! Earlier this summer the magazine did a weekend cooking project article on how to make home made jerky. I've been wanting to try this for months and finally attempted it this weekend.
Now I used the original recipe to make spicy jerky. It called for soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce which are typically NOT gluten free. I subbed in Bragg Liquid Aminos - All Purpose Seasoning - 16oz for the soy sauce (or you could use gluten free soy sauce) and I used Lea & Perrins Worcestershire sauce which is also gluten free.
I used sirloin steaks and marinated them for three hours then I dehydrated the beef in my
Nesco FD-75A 700-Watt Food Dehydrator for 10 hours at 160 degrees. If you don't have a food dehydrator you can make it in your oven. Here are all the directions to use your oven to make jerky. It is really good, Rich, Bell, and I loved it. Roxy too!

I typically stay away from spicy food, but loved this recipe. I dehydrated two pounds of sirloin and it made half a gallon zip lock bag full of jerky. This will be a definite snack item I will keep my pantry stocked with during the winter.
