Default Beef Jerky- Hot Green Chili

My friends and family rave about my jerky, so I thought I would post it up here for you all to try.

I don't measure anything in the kitchen so the measurements are estimates.

I got 10lb beef from the store. I just get the cheapest cut of meet they have. Rump roast, Round, Chuck, anything like that, then have the butcher cut it as thin as he can with their meat saw.

My marinade-

4 cups hot water
3tbsp Salt
1tbsp Pepper
2tbsp Garlic Powder
2tbsp Onion Powder
1tbsp Cayenne
1tbsp Smoked Paprika
2tbsp Brown Sugar
2-3tbsp liquid smoke
2-3tbsp Worcheschire
2-3tbsp Soy Sauce

Click the image to open in full size.

I let the meat marinade for about 12 hours. Then I drain the marinade out and try to get any excess moisture out of the meat by pressing down on them.

The green chili Marinade-

I use fresh roasted green chilis because I live in New Mexico and thats how we roll. I suppose you could use canned for you Yanks but it will not be as good. Anyways, with the fresh I take the skin off about 30 green chilis. and then put in the food processor. I then stir in about 3tbsp Salt. I then add about 1 cup warm water. I let the beef sit in this mixture for about 2-8 hours. Depends on when you are ready to dehydrate.

I have a dehydrator I bought online a few years ago that I use. Think I paid like 80-120$. I place all the meet on the trays.

I set the temp at about 160F and leave it on that for the first 3 hours. I rotate the trays from bottom to top every hour. After about 3 hours I turn the heat down to about 140F and continue dehydrating for another 5 hours still rotating trays ever hour or 2.

Take out what you want to eat now and then vacuum seal the rest of the jerky and enjoy.

I am a huge Jerky fan, and am not one to brag, but this jerky truly blows away any jerky I have store bought ever. In all seriousness, all my family and friends tell me I should sell this stuff, but I am not really sure where to start. It is one hell of a process as you can tell just by my first post. 10lb of beef only yields about 5.5lb of finished product. It cost me about 40-45$ just in meat and then maybe 6-8$ worth of seasonings and green chili. The cost I would have to sell it at would have to be way to high I think. I dont think trying to sell this stuff would be cost effective especially when you add in my time. Takes a good 24 hours for me to yield only 5 lbs. Clean up is a biitch as well.

I know what you're talking about, that's why beef jerky are sold at such a ridiculous price in stores. But I love beef jerky though, I might have to give this a shot but with free deer meat from friends who hunt.

Cleanup isn't as bad when its in a business location where you can hose down everything.

Price for beef is high but not so bad when you buy a few hundred lbs at a time =)

Check out the Asian Markets. Rump Roast should run you around .99-1.99 a LB I almost never buy rump roast even at local big box stores unless its under $3.00 a LB.

Well worth it man. Do it and then follow my recipe. As for the Asian meat markets, we dont have them here. We do have some mexican meat markets though. I will have to go by there with my pocket translator and see what 20-30lb of rump cost.

If you really are thinking of selling it, you will be buying more beef and will get a break on the price per pound. You might also try a lesser cut of beef. You're drying it so even though $4.00 to $4.50/lb is pretty inexpensive beef, you'd be buying in bulk and would save a couple more bucks per pound. Even a lesser cut wouldn't impact the texture of the final product all that much.

Looks good.

Where are you located in New Mexico? I lived in Albuquerque for 3 years and there are quite a few. Then again that is assuming you live there.

^ I have seen it in stores, so I assume its possible. I would be nervous trying it though with bacteria/salmonella etc with chicken. When dehydrating, the temps seldom get over 140-160F. Might have to play around with that as I do like chicken as well.

I live about 3 hours from ABQ. I don't get to ABQ very often. I live up in the 4-corners area.

Way to much work for me to do a group buy. i cant even keep up with enough for me and my colleagues here at work.
