Jerky Query

7 posts in this topic

Greetings all!

I'm trying to find a good method of creating beef jerky, that is totally gluten-free! My best mate is a "jerky-junky" & was diagnosed as a celiac-ian not long ago...

Down here in Australia we can't get any gluten-free (read as soy sauce-based), store bought jerky at all - well, not that I can find!

So, I am hoping that someone out there will have the know-how, of how to make a good beef jerky at home that is more than just 'oven-dried beef strips'!

I thought of doing plain salted beef, or even cracked black pepper, but surely there are some better 'safe' recipies out there!!??

Cheers all!!

Hi Dallan,

My kids are also big jerky fans. You can make a good gluten-free marinade to flavor the meat in by mixing some spices with some wheat free soy sauce (or tamari sauce). You can pretty much mix it to be whatever flavor you like. Peppered, garlic, teriyaki flavored, what ever you like. It sounds like you already know how to dry it in the oven. It certainly works better if the meat is sliced pretty thin. You can also use turkey for an alternative to beef.

I haven't found any pre-made gluten free jerky yet, but if I ever do I'll let you know!

God bless,

Mariann

yeah, I use the recipe my dad always used, as the lea&perrins and smoke flavor are both gluten-free, and just substitute the wheat free tamari for the soy sauce.

as far as the oven, put cookie sheets on the bottom (or lowest rack), or put drying racks on cookie sheets (very convenient) and lay the strips on the racks (drying or oven, depending on how you're going). put them in the oven, set it to 200F (or about it's lowest setting, prop the door open a bit with a folded paper, and leave for 8-12 hours. (well, check on it occasionally, depending on the humidity in your area - I live a mile from the beach, so the original recipe's 6 hours is totally not useful to me. ;-) )

this may be a dumb question, but what kind of meat do you use? I am assuming beef, but is there a special cut or part?

then just marinate for a while then throw it in the oven? I am excited to give it a try!

Here's my "family" recipe:

1 london broil (a decent sized one... maybe a pound and a half or two pounds; I'm sure you could do this with chicken or turkey breast, and probably salmon, though that might be tricker, and I'd refrigerate it afterwards)

1/3 cup gluten-free tamari

1/3 cup worchester sauce (lea&perrin's is supposed to be gluten-free in the US)

1 tsp garlic powder (or use a few cloves of fresh crushed garlic)

1/2 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp chili powder

1 tsp liquid smoke

(optional (any of the following): 1/2 tsp ancho chili pepper, 1/2 tsp chipotle chili pepper, 1/2 tsp cayanne pepper, 1/2 tsp paprika, 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes, 1/2 tsp hot sauce)

Slice meat 1/4" thick across the grain. (Putting it in the freezer for 45 minutes or so ahead of time makes this much easier. ... Okay, an electric slicer REALLY makes this easier, but not on the pocketbook. ;-) )

Place strips of meat in a glass/ceramic (non-metal, non-porous) dish.

Combine all marinade ingredients and cover meat.

Put in fridge for 24-72 hours, stirring (or turning all the meat over) occasionally.

Place meat strips on oven racks with cookie sheets underneath the racks to catch the drippings (or on drying racks placed on cookie sheets).

Turn oven to 125-150F (warm on an electric oven) (note that my last message had the temperature too high - sorry about that!)

Bake for "3 hours or until meat is dry". (that usually takes me overnight - a good 12 hours, but I like it rather dry)

You can store it in a plastic ziptop bag for... oh, probably at least two weeks, maybe a month in a cool climate in a dark place.

    • Just for your information - Celiac disease is not a "gluten allergy".  
    • Hello! Not sure if this has been posted before, as I did not see it. But as you all know a lot of us have problems with getting enough nutrients and even those like me that don't, its also just as important.  *Tangent* I think as a society, not just America but in the UK as I noticed while living there and I am sure other territories as well, we seem to ignore one of the biggest vitamins of all - WATER. 55-65% of our body is made up of this crazy vitamin. Not only does it help in our most crucial bodily functions, but it also aids in the building of our cells. Specifically those with celiacs, it is vital in the aiding of fixing the problems we have with not getting enough nutrients. After removing gluten from our diets, our bodies need to work SO hard to get itself back to as normal composition as possible. Water helps build our cells back up, carries nutrients, brings oxygen to our brains, and so so much more. I just want everyone to keep this in mind whilst continuing their journey through this confusing disease.  Please please, I urge you to drink your 64 oz of water a day!
    • Atkins is bad for your body, ketosis for the most part is fine (depends on your body). People who intake too much fat while trying to go through ketosis are at risk for stones. I think your route is the best though to be honest. Sweet potatoes and some antioxidant enriched fruits are a good source of carbohydrates while having a low-carb diet. 
    • Hi all.  I'm new to this forum and so happy to be able to ask questions.  I'm a makeup hound and realize I will need to start replacing.  I'm acquiring Arbonne products and really like what I'm using.  I have tons of lipstick and, obviously, need to make some changes quickly.  DLoes anyone know which of the higher end department store brands are safe.  I've been an avid Lancome, Bobbi Brown, MAC, Clinique person, but I am fearful to use anything but my Bite lipstick now.  Would appreciate your wisdom.    
    • Growing up my Dad was a competitive bodybuilder.  He would go into ketosis before competitions.  He knew because he used pee strips.  I thought ketosis was hard on a person, as in bad for your body. Personal update:  I have been grain free for a few days now and have almost completely avoided brain fog.  I still eat sweet potatoes so I am getting enough carbs and sleeping well.  I weigh the same and I am happy! Friday is my colonoscopy and endoscopy to see how I am doing now at the 1 year mark.  I also have eosinaphalic esophagitis, hiatal hernia and GERD.
