Trim all visible fat from the beef and place in freezer for an hour or two to partially freeze.

While the meat is in the freezer, combine the bourbon, liquid smoke, Prague Powder #1, molasses, brown sugar, black pepper, soy sauce, & worcestershire sauce in a blender. Mix well.

Remove the meat from the freezer and slice ¼" strips with the grain and tenderize with a meat mallet. Cut against the grain for an easier chew.

Add sliced beef to the mixture and marinate for 6-24 hours in the refrigerator.
