Deer-Venison jerky on a white table with a cutting board

Venison Jerky

Rambling Rose Farmhouse


  • 1 pound Meat
  • 4 T Soy Sauce
  • 4 T Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 T Ketchup
  • 2 T Water
  • 1/4 tsp each Garlic powder, onion powder, & black pepper.
  • 1/2 tsp Salt


  • Add all of the liquid ingredients to a bowl. Next add the dry ingredients. Mix well then add the meat. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator. You need to marinate your meat for at least 1 hour. I like to marinate mine overnight.
  • After marinating, drain your meat then place it on the tray of  your dehydrator. Don't overlap your meat, leave space around each piece so that it gets good air flow.
  • Dehydrate your meat according to your particular dehydrator instructions. Be sure to check your meat often so that you do not over cook it. You want it to be bendable without breaking. If you don't have a dehydrator you can use your oven at around 200 degrees. Check often to make sure that you don't overcook it.
  • If you plan to store this for very long, store it in the refrigerator. At our house it doesn't last long enough to refrigerate.
  • Enjoy!
