Bulgogi Beef Jerky

Homemade beef jerky is a great road-trip snack and a perfect handmade gift to give during the holidays because it's flavorful, filling, and very portable. Traditional Korean bulgogi is made with thin slices of beef, marinated in soy, brown sugar, sesame, and aromatics, and grilled. Here, we take that classic Korean dish and dehydrate it into one addictive snack.

Freeze steak for 30 minutes, then slice with the grain into 1/4-inch-thick slices and transfer to an airtight container.

Whisk together soy sauce, garlic, sugar, gochugaru, ginger, oil, and pepper for the marinade.

Pour marinade over steak, toss to coat, then seal container. Let steak marinate in the refrigerator at least 30 minutes or up to 24 hours.

If using a dehydrator, arrange steak slices on dehydrator racks; discard marinade. Set dehydrator to 155° and dehydrate 4 hours, rotating racks halfway through.

If using the oven, preheat oven to 165° and set two wire racks inside foil-lined baking sheets. Arrange steak slices on racks and dehydrate 4–41/2 hours, rotating baking sheets and flipping slices halfway through. Store jerky in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
