Making Beef Jerky - Help

Anyone have any good recipes for making your own beef jerky? I have a food dehydrater and meat, but need a recipe for a marinade to soak it in. All of the recipes i’ve seen so far have tons of soy sauce or soy beans in them. is there anyway to avoid this or do you have to use soy? also, i want to avoid adding too much carbs or sugars to it. i just want plain dried out beef damn it. can i do that or will it come out bad? it doesn’t have to taste that great either. any suggestions or recipes are appreciated. Thanks
