Beef or Venison Jerky

Beef or Venison Jerky

Flavorful, portable, nutritious…there are many reasons why jerky is such a popular American snack. However, high prices at the store make it difficult to enjoy on a regular basis! Good news – this easy recipe featuring Bolner’s Fiesta Jerky Seasoning will have you making delicious jerky at home without breaking the bank. For the hunters out there, this is a great way to savor the harvest that you worked so hard for!

Yields 10 to 12 servings


3-4 lb. lean beef roast (e.g. top/bottom/eye of round, sirloin tip) or venison roast
Bolner’s Fiesta Jerky Seasoning



1) Using a sharp knife, slice the roast crosswise into 1/4” strips (Pro Tip – put your meat in the freezer for a couple of hours to make thin slices easier to cut).
2) Generously season meat strips on all sides with Bolner’s Fiesta Jerky Seasoning (approximately 2 tbsp per pound of meat).
3) Preheat oven or pellet grill to 180 degrees. If using oven, place seasoned meat strips (evenly spaced) onto wire racks, and place the wire racks atop baking sheets. If using pellet grill, meat strips can be placed directly on the grill grates or onto wire racks / grill mats if available.
4) Cook jerky for 4 – 5 hours, testing for texture around the 3-hour mark. The jerky should bend but not snap and have a dry vs. rubbery feel. (Pro Tip – hold the jerky up to light; if you can see light through the jerky, it is done)
5) Remove jerky from heat and let cool on wire racks.
6) Once jerky has cooled, dig in before it disappears!
