1 ½ lb flank steak *see note 1

3 tbsp worcestershire
1 ½ tsp liquid hickory smoke or mesquite
3 cloves garlic
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
¾ tsp coarse sea salt
Large mixing bowl
Meat slicer OR Cutting board & Knife
Large ziploc bag
Dehydrator OR Baking sheets with Racks
Prep the meat
Peel and finely mince the garlic or press it through a garlic press. Combine soy sauce, Worcestershire, liquid smoke, crushed garlic, onion powder, ground black pepper and sea salt in a large mixing bowl, then whisk to combine.
Remove any visible fat from the steak and then slice into 1/8-1/4 inch slices. Slice against the grain for more tender jerky, or with the grain for chewier Keto jerky *see notes 4&5.
Mix the beef into the marinade, then place all of it inside a ziploc bag. Remove all of the air and then refrigerate for 30 minutes – 24 hours.
Make the Keto Jerky
Fill the trays of the dehydrator with single layers of beef, leaving space in between each piece. Every dehydrator is different, so be sure to follow the instructions on your machine for making Jerky. The cooking time is going to vary depending on how your machine works and how thick you slice your jerky. I’ve had some batches ready after 5 hours, and some have taken 8.
Flip the trays around throughout the dehydrating process, every 1-2 hours, for even drying. Remove the Keto Beef Jerky piece by piece, continuing to dehydrate until every piece is done. The pieces should be firm and dry, yet still pliable.
Heat the oven to 175°F and cover baking sheets with aluminum foil to catch any drips from the jerky. Place racks over the baking sheets and add the beef in single layers. Bake for 3-4 hours, flipping the jerky halfway, until the Keto Beef Jerky is firm and dry, yet still pliable.
