Living with two glutinous omnivores means making foods I don’t eat.
It puts me out of my comfort zone since I don’t taste test what I’m making, and so far I am pleased to say that the bf and MR haven’t complained!!
I’m rounding together a few meaty recipes I made for the bf over the last few weeks…if you are in the same ‘home’ (I was going to say boat, hmm…I wish we lived on a boat in the tropics!!) as me, then these might be a couple recipes for you to make for your loved ones.
Homemade BBQ Sauce
1/4 C Braggs Soy Sauce
1 T Ketchup
1 T Worcestershire Sauce
1 T liquid smoke/hickory
1 t garlic powder
1 t onion powder
Pinch of pepper
Note: While I used this for the bf’s jerky, you can use this recipe for any veggies, e.g. sweet potatoes, carrots, zucchini, tempeh, eggplant, etc for awesome vegetable chips. You might also try it in a cracker recipe, e.g. Onion Bread for a BBQ flavour. Or use it to flavour BBQ’ed veggies or veggie burgers.
So many different options!!
Using the Homemade BBQ sauce, marinate thin slices of beef for 2-4 hours in the fridge. Use enough sauce to have the beef swimming in sauce.
Place on dehydrator sheets, and dehydrate for 8-10 hrs until completely dry.
Watch that they are dry and flexible, not dry and brittle.

Serve with chili (sausage chili shown here…I made a big batch of chili and added sausage to a portion of it for the bf!), soup, or as an appetizer with a lovely dip.
