Beef Jerky

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have a question? I have a Sharp Convection Microwave, Can I use it to make beef jerky, using the convection oven? Any help would be appreciated

Bill,

in a word, no.

slice it, season it, dry slowly.

a 150'F oven is one route; dehydrators with forced air circulation is another.

in your search engine of choice:
make beef jerky
that'll produce a lot lot lot of info tips methods....

My convection oven has a "dehydrate" setting - it runs at 140 deg.

I made jerky in my older, non-convection oven at 150 deg. with the oven door propped open a crack to let moisture escape.

The convection oven doesn't say anything about holding the door open a little.

Both worked fine with a good jerky recipe.

6 hours in the oven at 150F should give a satisfactory product. Myself, I use a Weber Smokey Mountain for making jerkey all of the time.

Make sure you use a meat cure, homemade jerky is one food that has been linked to LOTS of food born illness. Mortons Tender Quick, Prague powder #1, Insta-cure etc. They come with instructions on how much to use per pound of meat.

I use stuff from Hi Mountain Seasonings of Wyoming. They offer lots and lots of flavored jerkey spice mixes along with instructions and shaker bottle.

They include a cure in their jerky seasonings.

Correct and I feel that a spice mix that includes sodium niTRITE (NOT SODIUM NITRATE) qualifies the spice mix as a cure. As far as jerkey is concerned, it's a 24 hour (and not more) cure for the beef.
