These mushrooms are amazing! I used baby bella's and white wine in place of the sherry. Loved that is was a thicker sauce and didnt spread all over the plate. The herbs were wonderful, tender mushrooms, and could easily be served for a upscale dinner party. Thank you Mike for another keeper! Made and reviewed for Kittencal's Recipe Tag Game.

I thought this mushroom sauce was great! I served it over a chicken breast, and it was just a bit strong to me, not much...just a bit. I'd half the amount of spices with chicken. I think this would make a great "gravy" for Thanksgiving with the reduced spices! I think it would be absolutely wonderful over pork as posted. I used cremini mushrooms. I also think if you switched the sherry to red wine, these would be great over a steak. Such a versatile recipe....I'm so glad I tried it. Thanks for sharing!

VERY GOOD! I used cilantro instead of marjoram as I did not have any. I made thin chicken cutlets and used the sauce as gravy and my famly went nuts over it!!!!! Thanks for the recipe will try this again with veal next time.
