This recipe was not designed for a CS, But you never know.

3 to 4 pounds of Beef (This works very well for cheap tough cuts!)They will come out fork tender.

most of these can be found at your local asian market.

3/4 cup Shoyu (Hawaiian soy) seach the web keyword "shoyu" or use a dark japanese soy.
3/4 cup sugar
2 tbsp Sherry (Red rice wine will work fine)
1 tbsp sesame seed oil
1 tbsp sesame seeds (dont leave these out)
1/2 tsp MSG (I havent tried leaving this out)
1 clove garlic, minced
1 1/2 inch fresh crushed ginger

Mix all, Soak beef 4 hours (overnite is better). Bake in shallow pan. Turn 1/2 way through cooking, spoon on more sauce.
Bake 325 for 1 hour.
remaining sauce should be thickened with cornstarch for a good coating.
When first made, it smells like sweet motor oil. (dont be scared) it cooks up awesome!!
I lived on the Islands for 3 years...and this is the closet I have found. (I have been looking for years)
Serve with macaroni salad and 2 scoops of rice for an authentic "plate lunch" If you've been to the Islands you know what I mean.
