Squirrel This Away for Fall: Deer Jerky Recipe

While doing some late spring cleaning, I found this recipe and thought I’d share it.  If you like a bit of ZIP with your deer jerky, this is it!

Dreaming of Some Deer Jerky?

Deer Jerky Recipe

5 lbs. sliced deer meat

3 Tablespoons (Tbsp.) coarse-grind black pepper

1 Tbsp. fine-grind black pepper

1 Tbsp. salt

2 teaspoons of Accent tenderizer

1 Tbsp. garlic powder

1 Tbsp. onion powder

1/2 cup of soy sauce

1 teaspoon Tender Quick *

Crushed red pepper, to taste

Mix all spices and sauce together. Marinate for 24 hours in the refrigerator. Smoke for 2 to 4 hours. Dry in oven @ 140 degrees or in a dehydrator.

* I was unable to find this product and left it out.


This came to us from a German farmer’s stock of well-worn recipes.  He and his family have lived (and hunted deer) in the Texas Hill Country for generations.


On a Personal Note: Everything takes longer than you expect.  The postings have slowed while I try to move my blog and its 300+ articles.
