4 lbs. London broil beef or 4 lbs. flank steaks
2 teaspoons black pepper
2 teaspoons chili powder

1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup Frank’s red hot sauce

Directions :

1. Trim all fat off meat.
2. Cut steak in to 4 inch strips.
3. The steak should be about 1/2 inch thick.
4. It’s easier to cut meat partially frozen.
5. Pound meat lightly, you don’t want it too thin.
6. Add all ingredients in a large bowl.
7. Mix well.
8. Cover and refrigerate overnight (8 hrs.).
9. Line cookie sheets with tin foil.
10. Place steak strips on sheets, don’t overlap meat.
