So I cut up some very thin flank steak strips and made some “Chinese style” beef sticks. I used this generic marinade I found in the fridge, ginger paste, and sesame seed oil. You can’t see it but there is a small smoker box in the grill filled with hickory. I have to say, these things were tasty! It was about a 5 hour marinade with all three ingredients.
I think a full day or overnight marinade would make these even better. The wood was crucial. That smoke flavor really put these in another level.
