I cut the strips and then marinated them for about 5 hours. I had to use toothpicks to secure the rolls and it was a bit more work than I felt like doing, but the finished product was pretty and ultimately worth it. The meat was very tender. I'd probably even marinate them longer next time. I used a grill rack on our Traeger grill and the flavor with the sauce was outstanding. Served with cold soba noodles and cucumber salad for a nice Asian-inspired meal. Everyone loved it.
