His first instruction was slice diagonal to make 1 to 2" slices in width. I looked at the flanks steak and said.."It's a half an inch thick. How can I make meat larger than it is"
I think I was maybe 12 at the time.

This scene and the fire my father started with Charlie's secret marinade in the fireplace are in my book.
