Ginger Orange Beef Jerky

I decided to try out my new dehydrator this weekend. Aside from some simple fruit leather in mango and raspberry flavors, I came up with this delightful recipe. Enjoy!

Ginger Orange Beef Jerky


  • 1 lb flank steak, cut 1″ wide x 1/4″ thick x 4″-6″ long
  • 1.5 cups of fresh orange juice (I used 4 medium oranges)
  • 3 tbsp ginger fresh cut, large dice
  • 1/2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp vinegar (I used distilled)
  • Salt to taste (I probably used about 3/4 tsp)


  1. Marinate in a freezer bag for at least 8 hours. I did it for 16 hours.
  2. Dehydrate according to your dehydrator’s instructions. I have the presto dehydro 06300, so mine took about 5 hours at ~165F.
  3. You should cook the jerky after dehydrating. The directions of my dehydrator was to cook the jerky for 10 minutes at 275F. It should be sizzling when you remove it.
  4. Cool to room temperature and enjoy (or store it for later).

  1. Update: I recently did an Asian dinner night and used the marinade from this to make beef skewers using strip steak. I also used the marinade in a recipe for an Asian Sweet Sauce located on the site as well! Enjoy!
