I made this alcohol free and it was so tasty. I used homemade lamb broth because that is what I had on hand, freshly squeezed orange juice in place of the dry sherry, rinsed and soaked white Basmati rice, sweet butter (unsalted), fresh button and fresh portobello mushrooms, plus the rest of the ingredients. I did forget to toast the pecans but I guess it would make it even better. I don't use a microwave but we ate it right away. I may make this again with the fresh orange juice substitute.
