Step 1: In a bowl, combine all the ingredients for the marinade and whisk together. Then add beef, marinade and toss everything together, making sure the meat is coated thoroughly. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours (or overnight, the longer the better!).

Step 2: Remove the meat from the fridge 30 minutes before you plan to start cooking so it can warm slightly. In a large skillet, add cooking oil and heat over medium-high heat. Place a few slices of beef into the pan in a single layer, laying them flat. Cook on one side for 1 to 2 minutes, then flip them over to the other side and cook for another 1 to 2 minutes. Do these in batches until you’ve cooked all your meat.
