Beef Jerky
Beef Jerky was issued to both Northern and Southern troops.  Although beef was more prevalent in the north, southern troops were issued beef when it was available.  Most southern troops were issued pork which was more prevalent in the south.  In today's market place beef jerky and turkey jerky may be found in most supermarkets in your area.  One thing to remember is, it seems that when you make your own food with TLC it tastes much better.
2/3 Cup of  Worcestershire sauce
2/3 Cup of Soy sauce
1 Tsp. Black pepper
1 Tsp. Garlic powder
1 Tsp. Onion powder
3 Lbs. Brisket or Flank steak

Combine all your ingredients into a large bowl.  Cut  meat into 1/8" strips and place them into your bowl.  Cover the bowl and place it into your refrigerator overnight to marinade.  The next day pre-heat your oven to 175 Degrees F.  Pleace the meat into a ungreesed baking sheet and place into oven.  Bake for 8 to 12 hours at 175 degrees F.

     * Note:  Do not leave your home with a oven on.  So plan a
       day when you have time to do this project.
