This is a great side dish for mushroom lovers. I like to make this for holiday dinners instead of the usual vegetable fare.

I hate mushrooms but made this for hubby as a treat with his steak. I used red wine and a beef bouillion cube and omitted the cornstarch as I had to leave this on the stove a bit longer due to the steaks finishing cooking than the recipe called for. Thanks for the post. Read More

I can't believe that this recipe isn't used OVER something like a pasta. It's SO rich. I made it exactly according to the recipe: but was using it as a sauce for linguine, and it was STILL too rich. I like the flavours, but I feel they need to be spread out a bit more than this recipe allows. I would say this recipe feeds 8, with pasta, at least. I would also use the veg oil instead of peanut oil: peanut oil adds too much extra flavouring... my $.02 Read More

Nice recipe however I used marsala wine with this. I was just getting ready to add the cornstarch when I opted not to. It looked wonderful the way it was and my family loved it. Thanks! Read More

As written just average. Very good however after tinkering with the recipe. I used olive oil and a little butter rather than peanut or vegetable oil. NO water - I wanted sauteed mushrooms not boiled; and no cornstarch. Loved the flavor of the basil with this. Read More

This was a great side dish with our London broil tonight. Sliced up a red onion instead of using diced. Used red wine instead of white since I was serving red meat and didn't want to open another bottle. Also didn't add the cornstarch because it wasn't necessary. Read More

This is very good but quite rich for a side dish. I poured it over some almond-crusted chicken and brown rice which was delicious. I used dry sherry wine and added a splash of heavy cream for a creamier color/texture. Overall I would definitely recommend this recipe to be used as a gravy/sauce but not to be eaten as a side-dish.
