2.) When ready to start cooking, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cover, if desired, until ready to use.
3.) Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. When hot, remove strips of meat from marinade and add to skillet, reserving marinade. Cook, stirring regularly for 6 – 8 minutes, until meat is fully browned and starts to become crispy along the edges. When meat is cooked, remove from pan and set aside.
