Homemade Grass-fed Ginger Beef Jerky

This is the easiest way I've found of carrying around protein for snacks thus far.  Pull off a piece and go - it's a great snack for traveling.  I happened upon this delicious recipe when I accidentally let a skirt steak cook for 2 extra hours.  But it turned out so well - I had to share it :-)

Support your local farmer.
Native Meats based out of Upstate SC
raises 100% grass-fed beef.  
Grass-fed beef is one of the healthiest ways to enjoy beef because it is naturally higher in certain vitamins.  Simply because the cows are eating grass their fat content naturally reduces.  Due to Grass-fed beefs naturally has a low fat content it must be cooked at a low temperature to preserve more of the flavor.  Also, the aminos used in the recipe are a healthier alternative to your standard soy sauce.  Use what you have and enjoy!

1 lb. grass-fed beef skirt steak
Fresh Ginger, grated
Braggs Liquid Aminos or Coconut Aminos*
Sea Salt

1.  Sprinkle salt and pepper over the skirt steak.  Rub fresh ginger and aminos over both sides of the steak.
2.  Place covered in the refrigerator to marinate over night.
3.  Preheat oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit.  Heat a medium sized skillet over medium heat.  Once pan is hot, sear the meat for 1-2 minutes per side.  Place in a baking dish.
4.  Bake for 3 hours.  Cool in the refrigerator.
