We love capers, mushrooms and balsamic vinegar so this rates high in our house!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 4, 2011

Not sure if maybe I did something wrong or not ( I doubled the sauce and cooked the mushrooms seperate) but this dish had too much vinegar flavor... needed something to even it out.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 28, 2010

A little time consuming but the results were wonderful. I used both reg mushrooms and baby bella mushrooms, which worked well. I also needed a lot more cornstarch at the end to thicken up the sauce. Prob about 2 more tablespoons
