Southwest Deer Jerky

A couple of weeks ago, I shared how we make our wild game jerky. As I indicated, we had only successfully seasoned our jerky with pre-made seasoning kits. Over Christmas break, I decided to experiment some more with a homemade seasoning. I thawed out some ground deer meat and came up with a Southwest jerky recipe.

Our Southwest mixture uses only dry seasonings (well, except for a splash of Worcestershire sauce). We personally haven’t had as much luck with the soy sauce and other liquid based recipes. Maybe we were just doing something wrong with them…more experimentation is needed!
