The kids are always asking me for homemade deer jerky. This venison jerky recipe has a spicy, Tex Mex flavor to it. Using ground venison meat makes it a little more tender than using long strips of fillet, making it easier for kids with braces to chew. I use the dehydrator, but you could use the oven at a low temperature or smoke it. I’m working on an article of venison jerky cooking tips
, which I’ll link to soon. Meanwhile, this venison jerky is easy and yummy. You can also double the recipe if you have a lot of meat.
Tex Mex Ground Venison Jerky
Recipe: Tex-Mex Ground Venison Jerky
- 1 lb ground venison
- 1 tsp pickling salt (can sub with kosher salt)
- 2 tbs fresh cilantro, chopped
- 1â€“2 tsp chili powder
- Â½ tsp liquid smoke
Using the food processor with the blade attachment mixes the ingredients well; better than using a mixer.
I use kosher salt, but grind it the mortar and pestle so that it is as fine as pickling or canning salt.
