Delicious! This is the kind of food my husband loves, so I know I'll be making this again. Rich, meaty flavor. I used mushrooms from a local farm, which were fabulous. My husband's favorite spirit is Scotch whiskey, so I usually have it on hand; it adds so much flavor to the dish. Next time I'll post a photo. Thanks for the recipe!
