Dave you must me a good cook since you don't measure ingredients.
Gloria, go VERY EASY on the soy sauce. A little goes a long way... It (the marinade) will taste strong, but what I do is start with perhaps a half cup of catsup, and then add no more than a tablespoon of soy sauce if even that... Stir is in well and taste... You are looking for the catsup to overwhelm the soy sauce NOT the other way around... I then add salt until I can taste it as well... The volumes are different every time because of the differing amounts of meat, so I just wing it... For what it's worth, catsup is the only seasoning I use in my stews as well... All the spices blend beautifully and taste noting like catsup once cooked ...Oh yes Dave, we can share links to personal web pages. I think the only links we can't share are those for monetary profit.
Your marinade is so simple I was sure you were holding out!!! I'll give it a try next time we make jerky..thanks.
