My husband has been asking for a mushroom sauce for steaks, and this is it! The only change I made was to add 2 cloves of garlic (gotta love the garlic!). Served over steaks off the grill and basmati rice, to get every drop of the sauce. :) This is going in my permanent file.

Very tasty! Just the right combination of tangy and sweet to pair with the mineral flavor of a well aged steak.

very nice, I had a little trouble thickening it so added a little sour cream which was delicious and I served it with Venison steaks, a perfect combination.
