This is another favorite venison jerky recipe that adds in sage with maple syrup to give the venison jerky a unique flavor. This venison jerky recipe always reminds me of sausage in a way due to the sage.
2 pounds of venison steak sliced into 1/4 inch strips
2 Tablespoons of apple cider vinegar
2 Tablespoons of maple syrup
1 Tablespoon dried sage
1 Tablespoon sea salt
2 Tablespoons warm water
Ground black pepper to taste depending on how hot you like it
Mix the ingredients together in a bowl and add in the venison strips. Marinate the venison jerky for 1 to 2 hours in the fridge. Stir the venison in the marinade every half hour or so to make sure it is evenly distributed.
Take the venison out of the marinade and place into your dehydrator and dry the venison jerky using the manufactures instructions.
Once the venison jerky recipe is complete, place the finished venison jerky in food storage bags to lock in the freshness.
