Well, the weekend approaches and lunch, dinner or snack my frig has a few extras. Time to put them together into an easy tasty dish. Mushrooms are a perfect fit for beef. A fast skillet simmered in ten minutes could easily just come to the table deconstructed with condiments and let everyone construct their own. Don't forget your favorite hot sauce! Happy Friday.
