This is a marinade for about 2 pounds of beef
2/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
2/3 cup soy sauce
1 tablespoon honey
2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
2 teaspoons onion & garlic powder
1 teaspoon liquid smoke
Red pepper flakes depending on your preference for level of spice. Or I like to use Siracha hot sauce
I've also done a lot of jerky out of ground beef. You can either get the jerky extruder tool but I use my cookie press. It has a design that lets me create long flat pieces. I use very lean ground beef and mix in my preferred spices.
Basic method is to mix up your meat with spices for the flavor you want to go with (salt, garlic and/or onion powder, black pepper, red pepper, oregeno, cumin, chili powder). Then you create strips using the jerky extruder or cookie press. Then create a coating out of wet ingredients. Terriyaki sauce, Hot wings sauce, or a soy sauce/lime juice mixture for a fajita flavoring and brush ontop the strips before drying.
They don't come out as tough as regular jerky but it's very cost effective if you get the groun beef on sale.
