How to make beef liver jerky?

Does anyone have experience making beef liver jerky? I was initially thinking of mixing half ground beef and half ground liver but thought maybe it is possible to do all liver. Would it taste like a dog treat? Do dog treats taste good?

Thanks

Just did a search and didn't find anything either, maybe I was hallucinating past threads (probably not a good sign if I'm having imaginary conversations about drying liver, gotta get out more, ha!).

Thanks for the suggestion. I don't think this is a duplicate because I searched liver, jerky, liver jerky, and organ jerky but didn't come anything. Sorry if I missed it.

This might be a duplicate, feel like I've seen it before on here. I think you need to either dry it more quickly than you would want to for the muscle meat in the jerky, or freeze-dry the liver because it would spoil before it was dried otherwise. As to the tastiness of dog treats, I do not know, but the guy at the pet store strongly discouraged eating dog liver snacks as a person because they allow for much higher bacterial and chemical contamination in pet food.

Do not ever... EVER.. used ground meat for jerky unless you want a slim jim... I have made liver jerky before (not beef).. Normally I salt pepper and a dash of hot paprika before flipping... I really enjoy the natural flavor of meats when I dehydrate them... So maybe look into that! Mine are sliced about 1/4 inch.. Think about a cooked version of the same thing and flavor it that way then slap it in to the dehydration device!!!

I saw a few sites that said Vietnemese Liver Jerky is awesome, but I can't seem to find a recipe for that. If you try it and it is awesome, let us know!

I made a chicken liver jerky for my cats. It only contained chicken livers and a few tbsp of catnip.

You can probably do the same with food-for-humans ... although maybe skip the catnip. ;-)

Process:

  • Blend raw liver in food processor (the puree will be liquidy).
  • Add spices if you want, and mix.
  • Dehydrate on non-stick (the non-porous ones!) sheets in dehydrator @ 140-165F for 5-8 hours.
  • Remove from sheet and cut into morsels a little bit past halfway mark, and return to drying.

I don't precook any of my jerky. Your times and temps will vary - you want the jerky to be evenly dry, and not quick-to-crisp on the outside, which will end up seeling the moisture in (which is bad). This is probably not a beginners jerky, but is vary easy to do once you get a feel for your dehydrator.

i wondered about this too. Google is full of dog treat recipes called liver jerky, but its is always cooked. i did read an article about Gan Chay which appears to be a vietnamese liver jerky, but no recipe was provided.
