2 pounds top round steak (or eye or flank steak), trimmed from any fat and thinly sliced against the grain    

1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce

1/3 cup soy sauce

1 tbsp honey

1 tsp freshly ground black pepper

1 tsp onion powder

½ tsp liquid smoke

1 tsp red pepper flakes


  1. In a bowl combine soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, honey, black pepper, onion powder, liquid smoke and red pepper flakes.
  2. Add the steak and toss until the steak is evenly coated.
  3. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 8 hours or overnight.
  4. Preheat oven to 175°F.
  5. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place a wire rack over the foil.
  6. Lay the beef strips out in a single layer on the wire rack.
  7. Sprinkle with extra coarsely ground black pepper.
  8. Bake the beef in the preheated oven until dry and leathery, about 4 to 6 hours, flipping the beef once about halfway through. (see note*)
  9. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.
  10. Transfer in a container and refrigerate for up to 1 month.



The total time is dependent on the thickness of the meat.
