Homemade Spicy Beef Jerky (copykat)

3 – 4 lbs lean rump roast (sliced 1/8″ thick by 2 – 2 1/2″ wide strips)
1/2 c soy sauce
1/4 c teriyaki sauce
1/2 t garlic salt
1 1/2 t Liquid Smoke
2 T Oriental Sweet Chili Sauce
1/4 c brown sugar
1 t fresh ground pepper

Mix together all ingredients and pour over sliced beef. If you are using a food dehydrator follow manufacture’s directions. If you do not have a dehydrator you may use your oven. Turn the oven on low 150 – 175. the temp should not go over 175. The strips of beef may be placed on a cooling rack that has been set on top of a jelly roll pan. The jelly roll pan will collect the liquid and the cooling rack will let the air circulate for better drying. When placing the strips on the cooling rack do not over crowd the pieces. Turn the strips 2 or 3 times during drying. This method will take 6 – 8 hours depending on the thickness of the meat. Note to Me: Can also smoke in a smoker.
