Teriyaki & Beer Jerky Marinade

jerky marinade
The pizazz in jerky comes from a marinade. A marinade does two things. It adds flavor to the beef from the seasonings and it actually tenderizes. A beef jerky rub accomplishes the same thing in a similar manner.

There are probably thousands of marinades out there that will add pizazz to your jerky but this is one of my favorites.

This is enough marinade for about 1 pound of eye of round beef strips.


3/4 cup teriyaki sauce
3/4 cup beer
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/3 cup water
1/3 cup soy sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons liquid smoke
4 1/2 teaspoons ketchup
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes (I like more)
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon onion salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper, or to taste


Stir together the beer, teriyaki sauce, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, water, liquid smoke, and ketchup in a large bowl. Stir in the red pepper flakes, salt, onion salt, pepper, and garlic powder until blended.

Toss the meat with the marinade until the strips are well coated. Tightly cover the bowl, and marinate in the refrigerator at least 6 hours. 24 hours is better.
