    With the 1 teaspoon seasoned salt, 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire, and 1/4 cup of soy sauce this recipe is FAR from low-sodium. If you are suffering from high blood pressure or any number of other ailments that require a low-sodium diet, steer clear of this recipe.

    Is there a difference between dried beef vs jerky?
    I would like to make dried beef for my dog because she eats raw i don’t want to use any seasoning. Can I just slice the beef ino thin strips and allow it to dry out (is it now still consider raw) or do I have put it in the oven or a dehydrator at low temp (Is this noe considered cooked) can i do the same for chicken or liver?

    Low sodium? A teaspoon of salt and a 1/4cup of soy sauce has like a week’s worth of the recommended amount of sodium.

    I agree that soy sauce has a lot of sodium so you could substitute it with low sodium soy sauce. The recipe doesn’t say exactly how much beef is called for but I imagine it’s probably a pound or a pound and a half. With that said, unless you are going to eat all the jerky in one day then the sodium content per piece of jerk (depending on how small or large you cut them) isn’t equal to a 1/4 of soy sauce and 1 teaspoon of salt. Also take into consideration that when you marinade the meat, not all of the marinade is absorbed into the meat.

    I think that recipe sounds extremely high in sodium. With soy sauce and Worcerstershire, those alone are quite high.. There is a good recipe on Live Strong, website. I guess like all recipes, you just keep tweaking it till it works for you.. The good news is you don’t need salt to make beef jerky! 🙂
