Mushrooms in white wine sauce

    35 min

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

    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  -  19 Sep 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    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.  -  19 Feb 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
