    Luby Luby Luby's Note:

    I just saw this on the Food Network on the show "How To Boil Water". It was paired with a roast beef tenderloin. The tenderloin was cooked the same way as a lot of recipes already posted here so I won't duplicate it. However, I didn't find the recipe for the Mushroom Ragout so here it is. Hey - What's not to like about mushrooms, wine and heavy cream? You can use any combination of mushrooms or just one kind if that's what is available in your area. If Madeira wine isn't available you can use a dry white wine, but my preference for this recipe is a Madeira. The Shitake mushrooms have a hard stem so they must be removed but you can use the stems on the button and cremini mushrooms. You may have to cook the mushrooms in two batches if they won't fit in a single layer in your skillet.

      I LOVED this! The first time I had only regular button mushrooms and Marsala not Madiera. I added more cream than specified because .... because .. well I add more cream to everything that calls for even a whisper of it. I made it 3 days later using shitake, cremini, chanterelles as well as button mushrooms and loved it even more. I am using it as a base tomorrow for mushroom & sirloin crepes. Three times in 10 days means that this is a keeper here. I'm still using the Marsala btw. I will buy Madeira when this runs out.
      Thanks so much for posting!
