My bf loves sauce and I had a bottle of madeira that I wanted to use and this was wonderful. I did make changes and didn't have mushrooms but it would be even better with mushrooms.

Wonderful sauce, I love being the first to review especially when it's so very good. My husband and I both loved it, had it over steak. Followed your recipe exactly and would suggest anyone else to do the same. Thank you Tish, next time we'll serve it to dinner guests.
