This sweet heat Keto Hot Honey homemade beef jerky recipe is the perfect balance between sweet and spicy. Super easy to make and no need for any special equipment. Using either an Air Fryer, Oven or Dehydrator, you can easily make healthy jerky at home for only a fraction of the price of store-bought jerky. Add the taste of hot honey to the jerky and you will be out of this world amazed as to just how good homemade jerky can be!

  • Total Time: 6 hours 5 minutes
  • Yield: 16-18 oz 1x


Units Scale
  • 2.5 - 3 lbs sirloin roast, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup siracha (or hot sauce or garlic chili sauce)
  • 1 cup liquid allulose
  • 1 tbsp Honey Extract
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp liquid smoke
  • OPTIONAL for Spicier Jerky - 1-3 tsp chili powder and 2-4 tbsp sweetener


  1. Mix all the ingredients together with the exception of the meat.  Allow the ingredients to blend for at least 15 minutes.
  2. Add meat strips and marinate for at least 1 hour or up to 3 days.
  3. Remove marinade and place beef strips on a dehydrator rack
  4. Dehrydrate depending on the method (see post for details)


  • Since Mr. Grumbles does not care for spicy jerky, the recipe as written is mild in spiciness.  If you like your jerky spicier, add an additional 1-3 tbsp of chili powder or other spicy sauce, pepper or seasoning.  If you do add additional spice, you will need to add additional sweetener or the spice will overtake and you will not be able to taste the "honey" flavour.
  • In my Ninja Foodi, I set the dehyrator to 190 degrees F - It usually only takes about 2- 3hours to dehydrate the jerky.  Only use 1 lb of meat if you are using a Ninja Foodi and divide the marinade into 1/3 otherwise you will have too much meat for the dehydrator
  • In my Excalibur Dehyrator, it takes about 6 hours to dehydrate the beef.  If the beef is cut into thicker slices, it can take 8 hours.
