Modified your recipe a bit. I used a mix of shitake, baby portabella, and oyster mushrooms. Used Sam Adams Winter Ale as the beer. I also added about 1/4 cup of heavy cream and reduced a bit to give another level of creaminess. Served over homemade heart shaped pasta for Valentines main course dinner. Delicious!

This was good! So easy to make and with ingredients I usually have on hand. The lid I used was not a tight fitting lid, so a lot of the juices evaporated. There wasn't enough of the juices to thicken it. I did add more garlic. I think the recipe in general needs more garlic. Otherwise the other ingredients might overpower the garlic. This has a nice flavor and the mushrooms were nice and tender, I will make this again. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Made for Pick-A-Chef (PAC) Fall "08.
