    Trim all visible fat from the meat and freeze until firm and solid
 enough
   to slice into thin strips. Cut across the grain and make sure that the
   slices are as thin as you can make them, about 1/8 inch thick. Cut
 slices
   into 1-inch- wide strips. Arrange strips in a shallow baking pan.
   
    Combine remaining ingredients and pour liquid over strips.
 Refrigerate
   overnight or for at least 8 hours.
   
    Preheat oven to 140 degrees. Remove meat from the marinade and place
 the
   strips on a cake rack over a cookie sheet in the oven. Dry until
 strips
   will splinter on the edges--from 18-24 hours. Cool completely before
   wrapping lightly with plastic wrap.
    Jerky will keep in a closely covered container for 2 4 weeks.
   
    OR...use your dehydrator according to manufacturer’s recommendations.
