Author Meg's Everyday Indulgence


  • 1.25 lbs. flank steak or bottom round
  • 1/4 cup + 1 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. sriracha
  • 1 tsp. coarse black pepper
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder


  • Place beef in the freezer for 20 minutes. Remove from freezer and slice into 1/8-inch pieces. 
  • Whisk together remaining ingredients in a bowl. Dump into a ziplock bag and add beef. Seal and squish around until fully coated. Marinade in the refrigerator for 3 to 24 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 175 degrees F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil. Place an oven-proof rack onto the prepared baking sheet. Remove beef from marinade and place on the rack. Cook for 3 to 4 hours, depending on desired chewiness, flipping after 2 hours.
