Servings: 4 to 6 people

Appliance required: pellet smoker

What is needed?

  • Bottled dark beer
  • 1 cup of soy sauce
  • Tamari soy sauce (a blend of tamarind, soy sauce, white vinegar, and cloves)
  • 3 tablespoon of brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of salt
  • Pepper
  • ½-1 tablespoon of garlic salt
  • 4 tablespoon of ground black pepper
  • 2 lbs beef

How to cook:

  1. Take a mixing bowl and start combining beer, soy sauce, tamari soy sauce, brown sugar, salt, garlic salt, normal pepper, and about 2 tablespoons of black pepper.
  2. Take a sharp knife and trim any fat off the meat, if any. Start slicing the beef into strips of approximately ¼ inches thick. This will be an easy method if the meat is somewhat frozen.
  3. Put the slices of beef into a plastic pouch and pour the whole marinade mixture over it.
  4. Massage the bag in a way that all the slices are generously coated with the marinade.
  5. Seal the plastic bag and put it inside the refrigerator overnight.
  6. After a night of cooling, now it is time to cook the beef. Start your pellet griller on the smoke setting with the lid open and wait for it to establish the fire. This will take approximately 4-5 minutes.
  7. Once it catches fire, take out the beef from the plastic bag and dispose of the extra marinade.
  8. Pat dry the beef with the help of [paper towels to wipe off any extra coating of the marinade which is not required.
  9. Now sprinkle a generous amount of black pepper on both sides of the beef slices.
  10. Arrange the meat in a single line on the grates.
  11. Smoke the beef for a good 4 to 5 hours. Keep smoking it on the pellet smoker till the meat is dry but still chewy and is easily bent.
  12. Move the meat in a plastic bag again and let it sit at room temperature for a few hours before eating.
  13. Serve warm with a side of Worcestershire sauce!
