Chinese venison jerky is a great way to preserve seasonal wild game using traditional East Asian flavors like Chinese five spice and soy.
Cut venison into ⅛” strips with the grain at a slight diagonal.
Combine all ingredients in a freezer bag and marinade in the fridge for 3-24 hours depending on how salty you want your jerky and how long you’ll be storing it for.
Drain jerky strips and lay on dehydrator sheets, discard brine. Dry on medium (~150-degrees) until jerky is dried to your liking, flipping halfway through. It will take approximately 8-10 hours. Store in sealed bag in fridge or freezer
