...And so I make it myself when we are home for a day.
1/3 c Worchestershire
2/3 c soy sauce
1/3 c teryaki sauce
3 to 4 tbsp. brown sugar
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp chili pepper
I bought some Carolina hot relish and added a generous dollop for some heat!
This will marinate about a 2 to 3 pound cut of beef.
I like to buy an eye of round roast. It's not fatty and is very lean. I've used other lean cuts, but I quite often find this one on sale. I unwrap it and pop it in the freezer for about an hour so it firms up and I can cut it easier.
Once it firms up, I plunk it on my cutting board, (plastic of course for the bacteria,) and slice it about 1/8 inch thick. It's tricky and I always sharpen my favorite knife really well to get the job done.
I combine all the ingredients in a bowl.
And piece by piece, I dunk the meat in the goop, making sure each slice is seriously coated.
I cover it with plastic and place the bowl in the frig for overnight.
I'm so lucky! My niece gave me a dehydrator for Christmas one year and it is just so slick!
I lay out the pieces so they don't touch and plunk the whole thing out in the laundry room so the noise doesn't drive us crazy!
So after about six to eight hours, this is what it looks like! Leathery and really nasty looking and by this time, our house smells like a polish deli!
But Oh! Does he love me!
Into a zip lock baggie and I keep it in the frig, although it never lasts very long! He takes it in his lunch for a snack.
A couple of his buddies at work have gone out and bought dehydrators because Dick has shared samples!
(I think he just likes to boast about me!)
Looks pretty professional if I do say so myself!
All of these photos were again shot and loaded directly from my Nikon P90 and then posted without alteration of any kind.
