Prep Time 40 minutes
Cook Time 4 hours


  • 500 g Pork tenderloin


  • 2 tbsp Chilli sauce
  • 3 tbsp Soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp Vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp Maple syrup or honey
  • ¼ tsp Curing salt optional


  • Trim the fat on the meat and place it in the fridge for 1-2h to make it easier to cut into strips.
  • Slice the meat into strips AGAINST the grain, thinner strips will take less time to dehydrate and thicker strips will be chewier. 1/8th to 1/4 inches thick strips are good.
  • Mix all the ingredients in the marinade and put it in a bowl or ziplock bag.
  • Add the meat and let it marinate in the refrigerator for least 8h and preferably 24h for best flavor.
  • Remove the meat from the fridge.
  • Dry the meat strips for 2-6 hours at 140-170F (60-75C) depending on the thickness of your slices. You can either use a dehydrator or lay your meat strips on a metal grid in the oven. (Place aluminum foil or a tray under the meat to catch the drips)
  • The general rule is that your jerky is ready when it bends and cracks. Enjoy!
