Lay the beef on a cutting board and with a sharp knife, cut 1″ thick slices diagonally across the grain.
Lay each slice flat on the board and cut down the centre to form slices 2 to 3 inches wide.
Place the sliced beef in a container suitable for seasoning.
Pour the vinegar over the meat and with clean hands, mix thoroughly. Allow to stand for 30 minutes, mixing every 10 minutes or so.

Add the liquid smoke and mix again.
Add the dry ingredients in 3 or 4 stages, mixing thoroughly between each application.

Cover and set aside for a minimum of 3 hours, but turn the meat every hour or so to ensure even distribution of all ingredients.
