  1. Yum! This was so simple and loved the red pepper flakes in this. Served over a rib-eye steak and it was a wonderful dinner. Thanks Richard-NYC for sharing this great recipe. Made for Cookbook Tag.
  2. Thanks for a great recipe! I really enjoyed this. I used regular yellow onions because it was what I had on hand, & it was still good. I loved the added spice from the crushed red pepper flakes & would have never thought to add that on my own. I'll definitely make this again!
  3. I made this the other night for our burgers. Its was great, I didnt add a lot of red pepper flakes...thinking the kids might try it but I should have known better. Next time I will put a few more flakes it and spice it up a bit more. Thanks for a great recipe...gonna take it to the lake next summer for steak I think my dad will love it.
  4. I had some mushrooms that were about to shrivel up and die so I decided to use them for this. I'm so glad I did! I cut the butter down a little but otherwise didn't change a thing. Next time I'm adding more crushed red pepper. I'm looking forward to using the bit that's left over in a grilled cheese sandwich. Thanks, Richard!
  5. I used a mix of mushrooms, shitake, button and baby bellas. This was great, with or without the meat! I will use this often as a side dish. The red pepper flakes gave it some zing. Thanks Richard.
