    Made this for a Peruvian Themed dinner party and taste just like what we enjoyed while traveling through Peru. Wouldn't change a thing. I used a good cut of beef tenderloin and it went together so easy. Did pour on the Pisco and lit it, but not sure it did anything to change the flavors, already such a wonderful blend of spices. Served with fries and a side of recipe#310204 highly recommend this recipe
