Ive been experimenting with some new recipes in my new air fryer. So far turnip fries have NOT been a success but throwing in some marinated beef worked wonders to transform it into a nice chewy snack.

Now, I made these two ways – one with just some seasoning and no marinade. I found that the marinade jerky took a bit longer that the seasoned ones and it also lost a bit more moisture, leaving them a bit smaller.

When you’re cutting the beef, you want to make sure you cut it fairly thin. Not so thin that you can see through it, but about 1/8th– ¼ inch thick. If it’s too thick, then it will take longer to dehydrate.

When you want to check that the beef is done, take a chunk and bend in 90 degrees. It should tear and you will see the fibres of beef inside and it will NOT be cut in half. If it cracks and breaks – it’s overdone.
