"Bad cooks - and the utter lack of reason in the kitchen - have delayed human development longest and impaired it most." -Friedrich Nietzsche, Philosopher

The refrigerator light goes on...

This is a flavorful but light topping for your grilled steak. Choose more flavorful mushrooms like crimini or shiitaki. It is best to not let the mushrooms marinate too long - about an hour at the most - as they will become mushy. Make the vinaigrette, cook the steak and serve.
