A question about a recipe: Sugar Steak with Bourbon
I have a question about step 1 on the recipe "Sugar Steak with Bourbon" from amanda. It says:
"Layer together the flank steak, sugar, bourbon, and red pepper flakes in a bowl. Rub the sugar and red pepper flakes into the steak. Put the steak in a 1-gallon plastic bag, pour in the marinade, seal the bag, and let it rest in the fridge for at least 30 minutes and up to 3 hours."
Please explain "layer together" all the ingredients in a bowl, but then "rub the sugar and red pepper flakes into the steak", then "put steak in plastic bag and pour in marinade". Is it just me or this confusing?
