Hawaiian-style jerky – flank steak strips marinated in soy sauce, red peppers and water, dried in a dry box.
• 2 lbs flank steak
• 3/4 cup soy sauce
• 2 tablespoon Hawaiian salt
• 1-1/2 tablespoon sugar
• 1 each clove garlic, minced
• 1 each piece ginger, crushed
• 1 each red chili pepper, crushed (optional)
Cut beef into strips about 1-1/3 inch wide. Combine all other ingredients and soak beef in the sauce overnight. If you have a drying box, place the meat in hot sun for two days, bringing it in at night. If drying in the oven, set oven to 175 degrees. Place meat on a rack such as a cake cooking rack. Place rack on a cookie sheet and dry meat in oven for 7 hours. Keep in refrigerator.
