The Strips of beef may be placed on a cooling rack that has been set on top of a jelly roll pan. The jelly roll pan will collect the liquid and the cooling rack will let the air circulate for better drying. 
  • When placing the strips on the cooling rack do not overcrowd the pieces. Turn the strips two or three times during drying. This method will take 6 to 8 hours depending on the thickness of the meat.
