Looking for good Teriyaki jerky recipe

Discussion in 'Beef' started by custom99, Jul 5, 2011.

  1. I made some Teriyaki beef jerky the other day. It is really good, perfect texture, but I want a recipe with more flavor. I hoped the flavor would come out a little more after sitting almost 2 days but it didnt. The teriyaki flavor is almost not tasted.  It marinated for 36 hours. I have some in the smoker now that had marinated 2.5 days in a bbq recipe so I hope the flavor stands out more on this batch. Anyone have a really good recipe to share with me? The recipe I used is:

    • 1 Tablespoon brown sugar
    • 1-1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
    • 1 teaspoon onion powder (not onion salt)
    • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (not garlic salt)
    • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    • 2/3 cup bottled teriyaki marinade
    • 1/2 cup of no-pulp orange juice
    • 1/4 cup of water
    • 1 Tablespoon honey
    • 1 teaspoon soy sauce

    I bet Nepas has a recipe. I'm sure he'll be by soon.
     
  3. Ditch the OJ. That may be cancelling out the teryaki flavor.
     
  4. I saw some recipes with oj, some with pineapple juice and some without either. I thought the oj would give it a little of that sweeter taste so I picked that one. Thats why I am asking here. I found so many recipes but figured I could get the good ones narrowed down here.

    Kevin, what I have learned overthe years is do a simple marinade then blot dry and brush with your preferred flavor, I use Honey and Dijon sometimes or teryaki then crack fresh pepper on the outside.

    I have had much success with concentrating on flavoring the outside of the meat

    Google

    Best teriyaki jerky I have made to date was very, very simple..... get ready.... it's hard to do...... wait for it...... ok! here it is: [​IMG]

    1) Slice meat 1/8" thick.

    2) Marinade meat for 24" hrs. in Yoshida's Gourmet Sauce

    3) Spread meat on racks and sprinkle with fresh cracked pepper

    4) Smoke/dehydrate/or whatever you are doing

    Now before anybody gets their panties in a twist.... [​IMG]  since this recipe does not use cure you need to store it in the fridge, or you can add some cure to it and then store it somewhere cool with good air circulation.

    But the Yoshida's Gourmet Sauce makes THE best teriyaki jerky..... and Ron P. would be proud! [​IMG]
