  • Large zip bag
  • baking sheet
  • baking rack


  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of smoked paprika lending a rich and smoky flavor, enhancing the overall depth and complexity of the marinade
  • 1/2 cup of Worcestershire sauce adding a tangy and slightly sweet note, complementing the soy sauce and enhancing the overall marinade
  • 2 tablespoons of dried oregano imparting a robust and earthy aroma, adding a hint of herbal freshness to the marinade
  • 6 pounds of beef eye of round or sirloin tip roast a lean and tender cut of meat that will become succulent and flavorful after marinating
  • 4 teaspoons of ground black pepper providing a bold and spicy kick, balancing the flavors and adding depth to the marinade
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of liquid smoke creating a smoky and charred flavor, reminiscent of barbecued meats
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of garlic powder contributing a pungent and savory taste, enhancing the overall seasoning of the marinade
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of ancho chile powder introducing a mild and slightly sweet heat, adding a subtle smokiness to the marinade
  • 1 1/2 cups of gluten-free soy sauce or 1 1/2 cups + 2 tablespoons, providing a savory and umami taste, infusing the meat with a rich and deep flavor


  • In a large zip bag, combine all the ingredients for the marinade. Mix until all the ingredients are evenly distributed.
    Cut the beef into thin strips that are 1/4" thick and 3-4 inches long. Place them in the bag with the marinade and make sure each piece is coated. Let it sit for 4-8 hours, or overnight if desired.
  • Preheat your oven to 155 degrees F (68 C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place a wire rack on top of it. Place the marinated beef strips on the wire rack, making sure that they don’t touch each other.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 2-3 hours or until the jerky is dry and chewy. Let it cool completely before storing.


  • Select lean beef eye of round for the best results. Fat can turn rancid during the drying process and reduce shelf life.
  • Slice the beef against the grain to ensure a tender texture in the finished jerky.
  • Adjust the seasonings to your taste. If you prefer spicier jerky, increase the amount of ancho chile powder or black pepper.
  • For a smokier flavor, you can increase the amount of liquid smoke or add a touch of smoked sea salt to the marinade.
  • Don't rush the marinating process. Letting the beef sit in the marinade for an extended period will result in a more flavorful jerky.
  • If you have a food dehydrator, you can use it instead of the oven for drying the jerky. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for best results.
