Hunter's Sauce with Mushrooms

Recipe by PanNan

This sauce is also known as sauce chasseur. It's a nice brown sauce with mushrooms. I sometimes substitute this sauce when the recipe calls for golden mushroom soup.

This was a very nice sauce for our steak tonight. I din't have tomato puree, so used chunky crushed tomatoes and reduced it a bit more.
