    2       oz           Package dried onion soup mix
      1/4   c            Water
      1/4   c            Soy sauce

    1 1/2   lb           Very lean ground beef
   Revised 11/95 - original was too salty.  Be careful not to over-dry!
   In a bowl, combine onion soup mix and water.  Let sit for 10 mintues. 
   the remaining ingreidents, including the beef, and combine we...  Let
   marinate for at least 2 hours.  For a more pronounced flavor, cover
   refrigerate for 8 to 12 hours.
   Put through a jerky press, OR shape the meat into 1-to 2-inch balls.
   each drying tray with a solid leather sheet.  Top it with a mesh
   Arrange the meat rounds on the mesh sheets.  Dry at 145 F. or above
   hard, about 6 to 10 hours.  With some dehydrators, you will have to
   the rounds to ensure uniform drying.  If beads of melted fat form on
   rounds as they are drying, blot them up with a clean, uninked paper
   Each lb. of ground beef makes about 4 oz. jerky.
