The Spicy Olive’s Elderberry Beef Jerky

ELDERBERRY BEEF JERKY
2 pounds beef round steak, cut into very thin strips across the grain
1/4 cup soy sauce
3 Tablespoons Elderberry Dark Balsamic
2 Tablespoons natural liquid smoke
2 Teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon hot red chili flakes (optional)

Directions

Place beef strips in the bottom of a large bowl and add soy sauce, balsamic, liquid smoke, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and red chili flakes (if using).

Mix to assure the meat is evenly coated and cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 8 hours or overnight.

Remove meat from bowl and arrange the meat strips on the tray of a dehydrator and dry at your dehydrator’s highest setting until done to your liking, at least 4 hours. Store in an airtight container or resealable bags.

The Spicy Olive’s Taco Salad

A south of the border dinner option that is good anytime but especially for Cinco de Mayo!

Recommended salad dressing for the Taco Salad is our Serrano Honey vinegar mixed with our Persian Lime olive oil!

The Spicy Olive’s Balsamic Burgers

Adding balsamic vinegar to burgers adds a mouth watering richness to the meat. Neapolitan Herb balsamic is my favorite addition to burgers, because it adds flavors similar to Worcestershire sauce. Other Spicy Olive balsamic vinegars that would be tasty added to hamburger are Traditional Aged 18 Year, Espresso, and Dark Chocolate.
