If you’re going to make beef jerky, you absolutely must have a good marinade for it. This homemade beef jerky marinade only has 5 simple ingredients. The ingredients are low-sodium soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, liquid smoke, onion powder, and garlic powder. You should also have salt and pepper to taste. The ingredients are cheap, easy to find, and will flavor your beef jerky perfectly every single time.
