1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp canola oil
1 lb hanger steak, trimmed and sliced acrosss grain into 1/4 in thick strips
20 (6-8 inch) bamboo skewers soaked in water for 30 min
Freshly ground black pepper

1.  Stir peppercorns in a small skillet over medium-high heat 2-4 minutes until fragrant and smoking;  transfer to a large glass bowl.  Add 1 tsp salt and next 5 ingredients.  Whisk oil gradually into mixture until smooth

2.  Toss beef in oil mixture to coat.  Cover and chill 4 hours.

3.  Thread beef strips onto skewers leaving 1 to 2 inches of skewer open at 1 end.  Season with salt and pepper
