Master Recipe: Creamy Sautéed Mushrooms & Shallots

Andy Anderson !


Here’s a master recipe that will compliment just about any cut of beef you choose to put them on. They have wonderful taste, but will not overpower the beef.

They are easy to prepare, and all you have to do is keep them warm, until needed.

I don’t look at these as a side dish… I look at them as a topping.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
