Experimenting with different ingredients when making a venison jerky recipe can create venison jerky that is tasty and flavorful on many levels. This Thai inspired recipe is one that can be used when making either a beef jerky or venison jerky recipe. Like many of the venison jerky recipes I create, I typically use my conventional oven to dry the venison after marinating for 12 – 24 hours.
3 pounds of venison steak slice into 1/4 inch strips
1/2 cup honey
5 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons fish sauce
2 tablespoons ground coriander
Mix all of the venison jerky recipe ingredients listed above in a bowl and combine with the sliced meat. To infuse the venison properly, marinate for 12-24 hours. Mix the meat in the marinade mixture periodically to ensure it is coated properly.
Remove the venison coated with the marinade from the refrigerator and pull each strip out placing it either in your jerky dehydrator or on a cookie sheet lined with tin foil if you choose to use the oven drying method. Let the meat sit out for 30 minutes or so to bring it up to room temperature.
Preheat the oven to between 150 and 170 degrees. All ovens vary in temperature a little bit, so when making a venison jerky recipe, you may have to experiment so you don’t cook the meat. You want to dry it slowly, not cook it.
Place the venison in the oven and dry it for 5-6 hours. Again, this time may vary depending on many factors. Experiment to get it just right. You can also experiment with turning the venison jerky strips on the cookie sheet periodically.
