This recipe turned out perfect for me, I don't know what the other person was complaining about. Nothing wrong with the timing, at least with my microwave. It made good jerky, chewy like jerky but not over cooked like they seemed to imply.

People DO NOT try this, I guess I was in a hurry, and the "Timing was off" i did what the recipe said and it charred my meat. =(
I think it COULD work, maybe..I guess it would have to be watched.
I would stick to the old fashion way I guess, as the beef jerky process "Slow smoked" style is what I like, I don't know about everyone! It just didn't work for me that's all.
