One thing to note about meat and bacteria... the bugs can only live on the surface of meat, so solid strips which are dried can then be washed, cooked, etc, and as long as the surface is "germ free" the rest will be too. Not so with ground meat, which introduces the 3-dimensional labyrinth of possibilities for harmful bacteria to enter, breed, and introduce sickness.

It's also why you can buy a rare steak, but most resturants won't do anything other than medium-well burgers... you just can't get rid of e-coli in ground meat without thoroughly cooking.

Dehydrate with care, and happy eating.
