How to Make It

Step 1    Dry the Meat:

In a large bowl, combine the ale or lager with the soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce and the cracked black peppercorns.

Step 2    Dry the Meat:

Cut the beef into 1/4-inch-thick slices, either with or against the grain.

Step 3    Dry the Meat:

Add the beef to the marinade, a few slices at a time, stirring well to coat each slice with the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for 6 to 8 hours.

Step 4    Dry the Meat:

Preheat the oven to 200°. Set a large wire rack on each of 3 large rimmed baking sheets. Remove the beef from the marinade and pat dry with paper towels. Arrange the beef on the racks, leaving 1/4 inch between slices. Sprinkle with coarsely ground black pepper. Bake for about 4 hours, until the jerky is firm and almost completely dry, but still chewy. Let cool completely on the racks before serving.
