I made the recipe exactly as stated, figuring the sauces and Worcestershire sauce would be enough salt since all the reviews were raving. I should have tasted it! The recipe really needs salt and pepper. It tasted so much better after I added a couple tablespoons of salt. Solid base recipe, but I think I’ll stick with the one I already use.
