Absolutely delicious! I wondered where the sauce was before I put the lid on and then it had magically appeared when the lid was removed! I'll definitely be adding this to my regular cooking, it's full of flavour but quick and easy to make. Yum! - 18 Feb 2010

Used different ingredients. This recipe was SOoooo good. I went heavy on the spices since I was afraid it might be bland. Also, I was a little scared by how the "sauce" looked.... SO, I added about 125ml. cream to the sauce, and it was a beautiful thing. - 18 Jul 2008

Used different ingredients. Will definitely make this again. Was very pleased with how quick & easy it was to make. Will use fresh wild mushrooms next time. Also added a couple of generous glugs of a dry white wine during cooking and before serving also added a bit more butter and let sauce reduce. - 18 Jul 2008
