~Warm mushrooms mixture; spoon over steaks.
Tip * crushed re pepper can be substituted for the chiles. Use 1/2 tsp.
We really wouldn't change this recipe. I loved it and it puts smothered mushrooms to sham. We had to cook our steaks in the oven because the grill is in Colorado but they still tasted fine. You really didn't expect me to go without steaks for 3 years did you? I just left the steak part to Chris.
