“You can serve the Flat Iron Steak with or without the sauce, but I highly recommend the sauce, sometimes I actually double the recipe. Brandy can be substituted for Cognac and sometimes I use boullion cubes to make my own broth as a $$ saver. The Hot Sauce is the bottled sauce in the hispanic food section, not chunky salsa, the label reads "Salsa Picante, Mexican Hot Sauce". Prep time does not include marinating time.”
