Additional Cooking Tips:

1.) For best results, marinate up to 4 hours. This will significantly improve the taste of the beef because the marinating ingredients would penetrate to the beef meat very well.For even better results, you can marinate overnight by placing it on your refrigerator. I have observed this to a great factor in significantly improving the quality of the results.

2.) Soy sauce is my personal choice since I am more adopted to it when cooking. But if you have Worcestershire sauce you can as well use it when marinating beef.

3.) You can as well try frying the marinated beef with canola oil and the results would taste great and less fatty in my experience.

Enjoy your day! Thank you for your time.
