Deer or Venison Jerky as some people like to call it is a wonderfully delicious way to preserve and use part of your harvested deer. Jerky was an important part of early American life and jerky was usually the way that meat was preserved and taken on long trips. If you make it right it can be one of the most delicious things you will ever eat.
If you have a food dehydrator you can quickly and easily make venison jerky from the shoulders and brisket of your harvested deer. I make jerky from deer meat all the time and it is so delicious.
Cut your deer meat up into small thin strips about the size of a mans two fingers but as thin as possible.
Marinade For Your Deer Jerky
1. One Cup Soy Sauce.
2. Two Tablespoons Brown Sugar
3. One Teaspoon Ground Sea Salt.
4. One Teaspoon Ground Black Pepper.
5. One Teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes.
Mix your marinade together and then put your deer meat in a plastic container you have a lid for. Pour the mixed up marinade in on top of the deer meat and place the container of deer meat in the refrigerator over night.
The next day take your deer meat out of the refrigerator and shake it off and arrange it in the food dehydrator. It will take about 72 hours to make some of the best deer jerky that you will ever eat in your life. And yes it is that easy to make delicious deer jerky. I think once you make it that you'll realize that this is some of the most wonderful deer jerky that you have ever eaten.
