Chimichurri Jerky in a Weston Dehydrator

This is one of the most flavorful jerky recipes we've ever concocted! It's a particularly good recipe for lesser cuts of meat and less tasty animals because of its intense flavor. And because the flavors are so bold, it's also great for frequent beef jerky makers who are just looking for a different recipe. Try it!

Makes about 1/2 lb.

1. Slice the meat to ¼" thick with a Meat Slicer (or use a Jerky Slicer).

2. Combine marinade ingredients in a Kitchen Kit with the chopper attached and turn the handle until chopped finely (or use a Grater to mince the herbs & garlic, then mix into the rest of the marinade).

3. Mix the meat into the marinade and refrigerate, covered, overnight, or vacuum seal and allow to marinate for 4-6 hours.

4. Dehydrate at 140° for 6 hours, or until the jerky is dry, but still bends (doesn't break).
