This recipe worked out very well and everyone enjoyed them! My friend and I made it as a tapas dish for 20 people. The only change we made to the recipe was, in order to make it in batches in a big elcectric fry pan, we removed the finished mushrooms from the juice, let the juice cook down a bit, then we added them back. This worked out fine, still had plenty of sauce. Thanks for a fine recipe!

  4. Garnish with the fresh parsley and serve immediately. Serve with lemon slices.
  5. Heaven is these mushrooms scooped up with crusty bread! Trust me!
