Recipe for jerky calls for these peppers. What are they? Is there a substitute? Doesn't say how many to use in the marinade.

    They are small red chilies, most grocery stores have them in the Hispanic food area. You can substitute red chili flakes for them. -RP

    Be very frugal with Arbol chiles. They are very hot. Up to 30,000 on the Scoville scale.

    I use them instead of Tien Tsin chiles in Chinese food because every store carries them here.

    If this is the recipe what would you suggest as far as what pepper and how much?

    3-5 lb beef brisket sliced thin (1/8" or so) with the grain
    1 cup Soy Sauce
    3/4 cup Brown Sugar
    1/4 cup Dark Molasses
    1 tsp Onion Powder (or to taste)
    1 tsp Garlic Powder (or to taste - don't use fresh garlic - it will make the jerky bitter)
    1 tsp Black Pepper (or to taste)
    Dried Chilies Arbol chilies are my personal choice - cayenne are OK - avoid hot sauce because of the vinegar

    I would go with a TBS, but I like spicy jerky. -RP
