Homemade Beef Jerky

This is the perfect on the go snack that is packed with protein, low in carbs, & with no preservatives!! You can switch up the seasonings too... You'll never want store bought again! 

4 lbs london broil beef or 4 lbs flank steaks
2 teaspoons black pepper
2 teaspoons chili powder
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1/2-1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons onion powder
1 teaspoon liquid smoke 
1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup Frank's red hot sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar

First place london broil in freezer for about 45 minutes- meat is much easier to slice thinly when cold. 
While it's chilling mix all ingredients in a small bowl and set aside. Once meat is chilled slice as thin as you can get it- about 1/4 inch thick. Place all the sliced meat in a gallon size ziplock bag and pour marinade over meat. Seal the bag & squish to evenly coat all the meat slices. Refrigerate 4-6 hours. Place tin foil on two cookie sheets and lay the strips of beef all over cookie sheet, but DO NOT overlap. Dry in oven set at lowest setting 150-160 for 3 hours. Flip the meat and dry for another 3 hours. Meat is done when it's dry. I cut my meat really thin so it only took about 2 hrs per side. (4 hrs total) ENJOY!!!
