It was a little bit more water than the A1 sauce, and the taste wasn't so apparent or obvious right away like it is with the A1 sauce.
It was almost like the sauce was purposely made in a way so the taste of the sauce wasn't so obvious, and in that way it doesn't cover up the steaks taste. I still have no idea till today what sauce it was but it was an amazing meal.
I make a filet that that, it's wrapped in bacon and then I make a mushroom madiera sauce... Otherwise it's just salt and pepper for me...
