Beef Jerky All Over The House!

What does a 17 year old do on a weekend when he has no plans and all of his friends are sick and can't do anything??
They spend the whole weekend making beef jerky, of course!

First he got a few pounds of beef that was already cut into thin strips for stir fry and was on markdown. Got it all for about $6.00 with tax and all. Then he got some new marinade. One that he had used before - a mesquite. Then he got another one that sounded good (and turned out to be VERY good!) -a teriyaki!

He got everything ready and soaking in marinade and then filled up the food dehydrator. 4 trays of the beef jerky!! Turned it on and went back to writing. He checked it every once in a while and moved it around and stuff. When it was done he found a glass jar that I had saved from a jar of beans and put it all in there.

He has gotten quite good at making beef jerky. I love watching him do stuff like that. It makes me proud to be his mom.
