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!

This was really good. Just be careful when you light the alcohol. The flame from mine shot up 3 feet in the air! Very yummy though.

WOW! That is all I need to say, my family LOVED this, the sauce was to die for. The recipe caught my eye, because we went to the Witchery on our Honeymoon, so I had to make this. I am SO very glad I did. My husband wants this again, and THAT is saying a lot. A new favorite joins the family. Made exactly as posted and have no plans to change a thing. Thank you so much for posting. ZWT3
