Reviews for Mushroom Steak 'n' Linguine
"We enjoyed this recipe tremendously! I must say we didn't have trouble with the meat being tough (as others commented) but we used beef meant to use in stir frying, which is always cooked quickly. What I especially liked about it was that it was a recipe that didn't rely on name brand ingredients (except for the cream cheese) because often the name brands are not available in The Netherlands which can make an otherwise excellent-sounding recipe impossible to make. So two thumbs up from both of us!"
"Round steak should be cooked longer. It is a tough cut."
"There is no way the beef would be tender enough after just a few minutes of cooking, but the sauce sounds great!"
"This was okay, but the meat was kind of tough when it was all said and done."
