Beer Beef Jerky Recipe

This beer beef jerky recipe starts off with a good dose of rich amber ale beer called Fat Tire. It's soothing aroma and rich malty flavor goes amazingly well with the smooth flavors of molasses and brown sugar. I know you must like beer and jerky since you're already here, so give this one a shot and you can thank me later !

  1. You first need to cut your meat against the grain into 1/4" strips. This can be done using a sharp knife or you can have the meat cutter at your local store do it for you. Either way is fine.
  2. Mix all of the ingredients into a large pot and heat until it is hot to the touch and then turn off heat. Stir thoroughly for about 5 min or until molasses and brown sugar have dissolved. Let cool to room temp.
  3. Divide your meat into two separate gallon size bags and then add the marinade evenly to each bag. Marinate for 24 hours.
  4. Remove your jerky meat from the bags and gently pat them down on each side to remove excess marinade.
  5. Dehydrate your the strips with your favorite method for 5-7 or until done and enjoy that amber ale jerky!
