This is wonderful! We used it as a side for steak and for chicken livers, but it can be used for sausages, chicken, pork, pasta and I could go on and on. Be creative and add mushrooms if you like. 11/01/06 update...we made this again and added the mushrooms and it was delicious!(1 lb of button mushrooms but am sure it will work beautifully with any type of mushrooms).
