procedure: mix some soy sauce, black pepper, and red pepper flakes by hand into a pound of fresh ground beef. make patties by hand, flattening to about 1/8 inch, onto the waxed butcher paper in which it came wrapped. lift off and place overflow onto other things such as a barbecue grill grid. place out in the sun. flies and wasps may land on it but I rarely have a problem with them laying eggs. you'll notice fly eggs as a raised whitish or cream-colored area on the jerky, and you can just rub them off with your thumb. if you start early enough in the day, the batch will be dried well by sundown; otherwise put it in the fridge overnight and finish the next day, or place in the oven at the lowest heat setting and with the oven door stuck open with something for a few hours.
