Deer Jerky Recipe

Delicious Deer Jerky Recipe

Zesty deer jerky that you can make at home in your oven. If you have a food dehydrator, you can dry the venison by following the manufacturer’s instructions. You can also reuse the marinade for additional batches.


  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce

  • 4 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

  • 2 tablespoons liquid smoke flavoring

  • 1 tablespoon ketchup

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon pepper

  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder

  • ¼ teaspoon onion salt

  • 1 pound boneless venison roast



  1. Combine soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, liquid smoke, ketchup, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion salt in a large releasable plastic bag; set aside.

  2. Slice venison into long strips, 1-inch wide and 1/8-inch thick. Add strips to marinade and seal the bag. Refrigerate 8 hours to overnight, kneading occasionally to evenly distribute marinade.

  3. Preheat the oven to 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Place a pan or aluminum foil on the oven floor to catch drippings.

  4. Remove venison from the marinade and shake off excess.

  5. Arrange venison on a wire rack in a single layer and dehydrate in the preheated oven until desired texture is achieved, 6 to 8 hours.
