A pinch of mon cilantro as well.
00:55
A packet of or about a half a cup of cooking wine and a can of tomato
01:01
sauce.
01:02
You're gonna pack the Frank steak in about uh an inch and a half
01:06
and then you're gonna put it in the pressure cooker with all
01:08
those ingredients and you give it about a half an hour after
01:22
that, you're going to use another sauce pan.
