You can tell how into the paleo lifestyle we are at my house if you look at what we gave each other for Christmas this year. I gave my hubby a new set of cast iron pans, various other little kitchen gadgets, a 24 kg kettlebell and lifting gloves. He gave me a scoby and kombucha brewing jar, a new lens for the camera so I can get better food pictures and a dehydrator. Last year wasn’t much different…we got his and hers sandbags and a dip station for our workouts 🙂 Yes, we are foodie fitness nerds.
We’ve been having a lot fun dehydrating all kinds of things. So far we’ve done beets, sweet potatoes and beef jerky. I’ll talk about the beet and sweet potato chips in another post, and today we’ll do the jerky. I have never found any beef jerky in a package here that doesn’t contain lots of sugar and other questionable ingredients, so that led me to try making my own. We made some in the oven last year, but I think the dehydrator worked better. If you don’t have one, you could still do this is the oven.
I’m currently doing a Whole 30 so we made two varieties. One has a teriyaki sauce that contains honey, which my husband ate, and the other is just sprinkled with spices for me.
The amount of meat you use will depend on how many trays you have in your dehydrator. We currently only have two trays. If you have more, you could double this recipe.
