"I made this tonight, and quite enjoyed it. My finished dish had MANY more mushrooms than the picture from kimmyqt. Having said that, I did enjoy it. One tip -- make sure you use a decent bottle of wine. The flavor really comes through in the finished product."

I made this tonight, and quite enjoyed it. My finished dish had MANY more mushrooms than the picture from kimmyqt. Having said that, I did enjoy it. One tip -- make sure you use a decent bottle of wine. The flavor really comes through in the finished product.

This is a great dish. I made this as a side dish to accompany a T-bone steak dinner. It was superb served with the fabulous wine I used to make the sauce. I will make this again and again. ...........I had to post my pictures here as well.
