Thursday, October 4 – Spicy Beef Jerky


  • 1/2 lb lean top round or sirloin beef roast, fat trimmed and partially frozen;
  • 2 tbsp water;
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped;
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper;
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt;
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper;
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 cup paleo worcestershire sauce


  1. With a good knife, cut the roast into thin slices, about 1/8 inch thick.
  2. Combine the water, garlic, cayenne pepper, sea salt, black pepper, chili powder and Worcestershire sauce in a bowl.
  3. Add the beef slices to the mixture, cover and refrigerate overnight for the flavors to penetrate the meat.
  4. Place the beef slices, without their marinating liquid, side by side on baking sheets and roast in a 175 F oven for about 3 hours.
  5. Turn the meat over and roast for another hour or two, until the meat is dry but still bends without breaking.
  6. Enjoy and place the leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
