"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."

"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"
