MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 28, 2014

"Very good; hubby liked it a lot. I used marsala cooking wine in place of the sherry and it turned out fine."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 18, 2014

"This was a very nice recipe. I made just as directed except that I used canned mushrooms. I'm sure fresh would have been better but the canned were fine. Everyone that tried it enjoyed it. I served it with brown rice."
