I was going to submit this recipe and saw this. This is a great sauce for serving to those people who normally don't like eating simply steamed vegetables like broccoli and cauliflower. I used to serve this often to my husband (I was breaking him in to more exotic cooking back then) when we started dating since he only ate salad and did not care for any other vegetable recipes besides potatoes and corn. Now, he loves all vegetable recipes thanks to this introduction. This is also great to get kids eating veggies too. The worcestershire sauce and mushrooms really make this sauce.
