“I use a 1 3/4 pound of flat iron steak. I cooked it on for 4 minutes on each side and it came out rare. I do like my steak rare. My sister thought it was good but much better the next day, since it was medium rare after heating up. This is an easy recipe to make, however, next time I will add a little corn starch to the sauce to thicken it up a bit.”
