I wouldn’t say I have a craving for mushrooms, but the two newest recipes I’ve made feature the meaty vegetable. My little sister, Sara made Steak Tips with Peppered Mushroom Sauce from the latest issue of Cooking Light and gave high marks. It seemed like the perfect cold-weather comfort food.
This recipe is a great weeknight dinner that is quick and easy, but still very homemade. My only complaint was I wish it had more sauce to cover the noodles. Maybe I made too many egg noodles, or we used up the sauce in the first go-round there was not much left for the leftovers. The sauce was amazing and full of flavor! Steak Tips with Peppered Mushroom Sauce (Cooking Light)
