If you prefer your jerky more salty than sweet use 1 cup of soy sauce and 1 cup pineapple juice. Otherwise, if you like it a little sweeter –
The recipe is for ~2lbs of meat –
- 1/2 cup soy sauce
- 1.5 cups pineapple juice
- 2 T fresh minced ginger root
- 1 t liquid smoke (optional)
- 2 t red pepper flakes (optional)
One of my favorite flavor combos is sweet/hot. If you don’t like spicy, omit the red pepper and cut ginger in half.
