  • Add soy sauce, oyster sauce, sesame oil, water/wine, and red pepper; stir.
  • Meat:
  • Add meat to large glass bowl; cover with marinade.
  • Pierce 25 times on each side with large round object (I use the chopsticks for this)pushing the marinade into the holes for most tender result.
  • Let the meat marinade while you prepare the grill.
  • Light the charcoal and wait 15 minutes.
  • Shake the grill to spread out the charcoal a little; throw on dry mequite smoking chips.
  • Place meat on the grill 2 inches above charcoal.
  • Cook to desired doneness, best Medium-Rare but still tender and juicy even if well-done.
  • Serve immediately.
Favorite family cook out recipe. Also good on other meats.
