I tried this one over the weekend and we thought it was good. It was a nice change from the sauteed mushrooms I usually make to go with grilled steaks.

I had to drain my mushrrom after they had been sitting after cooking as they released more water. I did not use 2 pans for this; I just did everything in the skillet. Leftovers reheated well too.
