Step 1

Freeze your roast partially - this makes it easier to slice it thin. Once partially frozen, cut the roast against the grain in thin uniform slices.

Combine the marinade ingredients in a bowl. Place the beef in a large ziploc bag (or other sealable container) and pour over the marinade. Seal the container, and refrigerate overnight - or at least for 8 hours. Drain the marinade off of the beef, and place the beef slices in your dehydrator. Run the dehydrator until the beef is thoroughly dried. Your dehydrator should have a guide as to how long this takes per your machine. It can take anywhere from 4 to 8 hours depending on your dehydrator.

If you don't have a dehydrator, you can also use your oven. Place your sliced beef on a wire rack set upon of a baking sheet, Cook at 165°F for 1 to 3 hours or until your meat is cooked thoroughly.
