  1. This sauce was easy and delicious!!!! The only thing I did different was cooked it down rather than using the cornstarch to thicken. I did this before cookin the steaks on the grill, then when the steaks were done, I started to reheat the sauce. As it came to a boil, I threw in 1TB butter and wisked it into the sauce!!! The wife loved it and so did I. We will definitley be having this sauce with steaks again!!!
  2. 5 Stars for ease, appearance, consistency, subtle blending of flavors, and versatility. It would lend itself to being spiced up by herbs/spices of your choice. I needed a little more flavor to suit my taste, so I added 1 tsp. beef bouillon and 1-1/2 tsp more tomato paste. That did it! I think this would be delicious over pork, too!
  3. Easy and delicious. Followed the recipe exactly, except I added some Thyme, perfect-o!
  4. My dad is still raving about this today. I tripled or quadrupuled the garlic, but I always do for every recipe. Our steaks were late coming off the grill, so the mushroom sauced reduced quite a bit and was thick and delicious!
  5. This is really easy to prepare. I used merlot and a mix of shiitake, cremini and button mushrooms. We all liked it, but felt it needed more garlic and tomato paste, and a little thyme. I served the sauce over steaks with a side of mashed potatoes (wonderful for dipping in the sauce) and green beans. Thank you for posting.
