- 4 pounds of ribeye steak, trimmed of excess fat
- 1 cup soy sauce
- 1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce
- 4 tablespoons honey or monk fruit sweetener
- 4 teaspoons onion powder
- 4 teaspoons garlic powder
- 2 teaspoons black pepper
- 2 teaspoons smoked paprika (optional)
- 1 - 2 teaspoons cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes (adjust to taste for spice level)


1. Begin by placing the ribeye steak in the freezer for 30-45 minutes to firm it up for easier slicing.

2. While the meat is chilling, prepare the marinade. In a large mixing bowl, combine soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, honey (or monk fruit sweetener), onion powder, garlic powder, black pepper, smoked paprika (if using), and cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes. Mix until thoroughly combined.

3. Remove the ribeye from the freezer and slice it against the grain into thin strips, approximately 1/4 inch thick.

4. Place the sliced ribeye strips into a large resealable plastic bag or a suitable container. Pour the marinade over the meat, ensuring all pieces are well coated. Seal the bag or cover the container and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or ideally overnight, for the flavors to meld.

5. Prepare your smoker for cooking at a low temperature range of 160-180°F (70-80°C).

6. Remove the marinated ribeye strips from the refrigerator and pat them dry with paper towels to remove excess marinade. Arrange the strips on the smoker racks, leaving space between each piece for proper airflow.

7. Smoke the ribeye strips for about 4-6 hours or until they achieve the desired dryness and chewiness. Rotate the racks as needed for even smoking.

8. Once the jerky reaches your preferred consistency, take it off the smoker and let it cool completely. Blot off any excess oil or moisture with paper towels.

9. Store the ribeye jerky in airtight containers or vacuum-sealed bags for freshness. Enjoy your homemade ribeye jerky as a delicious and satisfying snack!

Remember to adjust the quantity of spices and seasonings according to your taste preferences. This larger batch will give you more delicious ribeye jerky to enjoy or share with friends and family!
