Jim's Easy Mushroom Sauce for Steak

READY IN: 17mins
Recipe by Mika G.

This is a rich, wonderful mushroom sauce my husband found. He made a steak dinner for me (and the kids) so I could enjoy watching the Oscars. This was my favorite part of the dinner! It's fantastic!

This was easy to make and very nice :-). Definately worth trying to see if you like it. I kept to the recipe but intend to play with it to make it even better! I used a homemade beef stock so didn't add any further herbs etc except the Parsley at the end. I think other reviewed mentioned the addition of Onions which sounds a common-sense option, plus the usual Garlic. It is a great sauce to make your own and put your own touches to it. I have modified this to fit Pork (white wine & chicken stock) and that has worked well. Give it a go!
