  1. Slice meat into long strips, 2.5cm wide and 3mm thick. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, liquid smoke, ketchup, pepper, garlic granules, onion salt and salt. Place meat in and close bag. Refrigerate overnight. Knead occasionally, to evenly distribute marinade.

Liquid smoke flavouring can be purchased in speciality shops or online.
