1. Freeze the beef until firm up enough to slice very thinly. Blend remaining ingredients except for salt, sesame seeds, black pepper & kochukaru until smooth. Add beef to marinade & stir to coat. Marinate for 7 hours.
2. Heat oven to 200º F. Drain beef, blot dry & place on a rack on top of a baking sheet. Grind salt & sesame seeds in a mortar & pestle. Sprinkle over beef with fresh-ground black pepper.
3. Bake about four hours, rotating pans halfway through, until dried & jerky-like. less
