This Korean-style beef jerky is gluten-free, refined sugar-free, and made with gut-healing ingredients like fermented chile paste (gochujang) and fermented cabbage (kimchi). Both of these ingredients are essential in Korean cuisine! The Anova Precision Oven’s low temperature setting and convection fan features allow you to gradually dehydrate beef into firm, but still tender, jerky.

4. Prepare for Dehydrating

Remove the steak from the marinade, discarding any remaining liquid. Spread out on one of the oven racks, placing a sheet pan underneath to catch drips. Make sure there is space between each piece of steak. Top the steak with slices of kimchi and the sesame seeds.

5. Dehydrate

Rack
Transfer to the oven. Leave the oven door cracked open slightly so that excess moisture can escape. Cook until the jerky is firm but tender, 1 1/2 to 2 hours. (The cook time depends on the thickness of the steak slices.)
