    BakinBaby's Note:

    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.

      Fantastic!!! Loved the flavor from the marinade, then the seasoning and the wonderful onion sauce!!! I made this as written with the exception of using skirt steak and only 1/2 lb, my store rarely has flat iron steaks. I still made 1/2 of the marinade and sauce and eyeballed the seasonings for our taste. I would definitely recommend doubling the sauce/onion part for any recipe!!! Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for Photo Tag Game.
