    Too much of a good thing...

    Dried oregano is a delicious addition to savoury dishes, but don't go wild just because you love the taste. Using too much oregano can impart a bitter flavour, so best to stay on the conservative side when using it in your cooking.

    this is a great recipe and that easy to do for a beginner  -  06 Jun 2010


    Used different ingredients. Me and my wife ate an entire batch!!! I did substitute the oregano for thyme and I cut down the cook time by about 10 minutes finally I deglazed the pan with red wine when the shrooms were done cooking. This is a very tasty recipe and goes great with steak  -  15 Sep 2008


    i HAVE to give this five's MY recipe! however, reading all the reviews (thank you)' i felt compelled to write and say "yes, thirty minutes IS too long!" my mum-in-law got confused on the cooking time! 15 minutes is plenty. you can also add a little dry wine (red or white) instead of balsamic vinegar, and throw in a chopped shallot or two just for fun. thank you for all the wonderful reviews and ratings! good eating! -pat  -  15 Sep 2008
