Ingredients

  • 2

    pounds of boneless beef top round, fat trimmed, partially frozen

  • 1

    cup of Worcestershire sauce (I used Whole Foods brand because other brands have high-fructose corn syrup in the ingredients)

  • 1/2

    cup of water

  • 4

    garlic cloves minced

  • 4

    teaspoons of chile powder

  • 2

    teaspoons of chipotle powder

  • 2

    teaspoons of black pepper

  • 1

    teaspoon of salt

  • 1

    teaspoon of cayenne

Directions

1. Slice the partially frozen beef into long strips about 1/8 of an inch thick. 2. Mix all the other ingredients together, except for the cayenne. 3. Place the beef in the marinade and let it sit, refrigerated, for at least six hours. 4. After the beef has marinated, wipe off the excess liquid and pieces of minced garlic and place on foil-lined sheets with no overlap. Sprinkle meat with cayenne pepper. 5. Cook in the oven at 175 for three hours and then turn over strips. Cook for another 2-3 hours. (depending on the heat of your oven—some are hotter than others). It’s ready when it’s dry and has the texture of leather but not so dry that it’s brittle and snaps. Keeps in the refrigerator for three weeks.
