    This was VERY GOOD. I will make it again. Followed the recipe exactly as stated. Served with potato wedges and steamfresh white corn/baby asparagus/baby carrots. YUMMO  -  11 Nov 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    My boyfriend and I loved this. The only thing I did not like was there was not enough sauce. My boyfriend LOVES sauce of any kind & he puts it on everything. So I had to add extra wine, beef stock & cornstarch to make more sauce. Other than that it was fabulous!!  -  01 Oct 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I made this recipe using venison back strap and increased the portions a little. It was great & my husband loved it. The baby bellas are best & next time I'll try a different variety of wild mushroom. Wild rice is an excellent side dish!  -  13 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
