Your strips are cut with the grain, dried, and then cut across the grain for pieces, right?
How long of a vinegar soak?
This was my 2nd batch already. Similar results. A friend of mine made some and her's was excellent. I used the same recipe. I think she had thicker pieces, but perhaps its the cut? She used top round too, but purchased steak pieces already sliced up in the store (you know, single pieces, foam and plastic). Not sure Crank!??
Thanks Crank. Yeah I cut with the grain Dave, but I suspect the pieces were too thin. They were maybe 0.75 inches to start with. I wish I would have saved some of the round vs slicing and dicing the whole thing! Now I need thicker pieces to try vs all the frozen slices in my freezer. Will checkout your pics Crank.
