How Can I make Jerky?
I want to make some beef, fish,chicken and other meat Jerky for my dogs. Preferably with a simple marinade or something. Whatever dogs like best! I'll be using a dehydrator. I don't know how to make the Jerky and I can't find many recipes!
Chef's Answer ~ Most dog treat jerky's do not need any type of marinade. The meat is already quite flavorful for your dog, and marinades typically add quite a bit of sodium, which your dog doesn't need in his treats.
Start with your dehydrators user manual to see what it recommends for drying the various types of meat you mentioned. If you do not have a manual, search the internet for one. People often share their manuals for those who have lost theirs.
You can also make the dried Liver Dog Treats recipe with your oven, too.
No matter what, you'll have one happy camper with all those meat dog treats! :)
