I made Hannah Cordes Beef Jerky yesterday and it turned out amazing. I did not have any homemade Worcestershire sauce so I skipped it. It didn't affect the recipe much because I was using a smaller brisket. Only about 2 tablespoons of marinade were left in the bag which means it was almost all absorbed by the beef. I use this organic soy sauce called; Tamari Soy Sauce it is naturally brewed and made by Eden Organic. I love this soy sauce and anything which I have used it in is immediately so much more wonderful tasting. I get it in the health food section at Krogers. I had trouble grinding that much black pepper but the finished product tells me I used enough.
I should have taken the toothpicks out right away because the beef strips dry and shrink more after you take them out and cool them. I had to pry the picks out with a sharp knife.
