Chinese Beef Jerky Recipe

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Pinterest

Chinese food is a staple of the American diet. Second to only pizza as the favorite takeout dish in the United States, who would have ever thought to combine this much sought-after flavor pallet with that of beef jerky? But, the below recipe does just that!

It’s highly recommended that you use a food dehydrator for this recipe. If you don’t have one, then you can use your oven set to its lowest possible temperature with the door cracked slightly ajar to prevent the beef from overcooking.

Ingredients for Chinese Beef Jerky

  • 4 tablespoons of both minced ginger and garlic
  • 1 tablespoon of sesame oil
  • 4 cups of soy sauce
  • 1 cup of brown sugar

Instructions for Chinese Beef Jerky (Step-by-Step)

We’ll begin with four pounds of top-round beef.

You’ll first trim away all fat and then cut the beef into thick slices (approximately 1/8th of an inch).

The strips should then be cut again into one-inch long strips for optimal jerky.

Next, whisk together the above following ingredients (less the beef) in a large bowl with a lid to make our marinade.

Now fully submerge your meat strips into the marinade, cover the bowl, and place it in the refrigerator for between 12 and 24 hours.

Remove the meat from the bowl, making sure to dry each strip carefully, and place each onto either your dehydrator’s trays or onto baking sheets placed over your oven’s baking racks.

Sprinkle sesame seeds over the meat and place them into your dehydrator at 160° F for approximately three hours, or into your oven at 170° F for between 10 and 12 hours.
