Servings 9 strips
Prep Time 12 hours
Dehydrating Time 4 hours


  • 1 Dehydrator
  • 1 Meat Tenderizer


  • 200 g lean beef (rouladin is easiest – otherwise slice other cuts into about ¼″ thick pieces)
  • 2 tbsp white vinegar
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp horseradish
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 2 tsp yellow mustard


  • 1. Combine all ingredients (except for beef) in a bowl. Mix well and set aside. 
  • 2. Slice beef into about ¼" thick slices (length does not matter) and tenderize with meat tenderizer. (Tenderize to obtain proper and even thickness, as well as to best allow marinade to soak into the meat; if using rouladin, you will likely only have to lightly tenderize as it's already desirably thin).
  • 3. Slice into about 1″ - 2" wide pieces; length to preference.
  • 4. Place meat into container with marinade. Gently stir and fold to ensure all meat is coated with marinade.
  • 5. Let marinate in fridge for 12 hours. Meat will absorb much of the marinade and appear thicker.
  • 6. Disperse in dehydrator and dehydrate at 160℉ for about 4-5 hours. When done, meat should be dry but pliable.


  • Dehydrating time may vary (the thickness, water and fat content of the meat, as well as the humidity and altitude of your environment will impact dehydrating time)
