If you love beef jerky, you will love this venison version. Marinated strips of venison are dried in a food dehydrator until done. Enjoy as a snack anytime of the day.
If you don't have a food dehydrator, place the venison strips in a 70 C / Gas 1/4 oven for 6 to 8 hours.
Liquid smoke flavouring can be purchased in speciality shops or online.
this was very good, I used it for goose jerky. I left out the liquid smoke, and used the smoker. Racks were full 4 hrs at 160 degrees. I can't wait to try it on deer. - 15 Nov 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was one of the best jerky I have ever tasted. Hubby thought it was a little too sweet for him. He doesn't really care for sweet jerky much but I thought it was just amazing. I did use the same marinade which I put in the fridge a second time the following day to make more deer jerky and hubby really liked it. He said the flavors weren't as "intense". Thank you so much for this recipe. - 29 Nov 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was very good - I have to admit though, that I'm always looking to find ways to use less salt so I used granulated garlic and Bragg Soy substitute. I also used more hot pepper sauce (tabasco) as we like it spicy. It's also much easier to slice the roast if it's partially frozen making the slices more even. Thank you for sharing this recipe! - 03 Jul 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
