I have to admit that I followed the ingredients to this recipe but changed how I used it. I made up one patch to use as a marinade for my sirloin steaks. I then made a second patch to brush on each steak during cooking. I didn't cut it into strips. The flavor was not overpowering and offered a nice combination of flavors to the steak.
