This is a dish that reminds me of my childhood and my mother. This is a dish she would make for me and her mother would make for her. For me, this dish is like a hug or the ultimate comfort in food form. This recipe is decadent and delicious and was probably the only way as a child I would even go near a mushroom..although, chances are if you ask my mom, I probably pushed them to side! As an adult I say – add more mushrooms! This dish is rich, creamy, saucy, and you will definitely need a nap afterwards. The dijon mustard is a great addition and gives it a slight tang to cut through the heavy cream. The mushrooms add a wonderful texture and flavor that really brings this dish together! The best part is you don’t need a fancy cut of steak to make this. In this version I am using chuck because that is what the store had on sale – but feel free to use a cut of your preference, just remember it doesn’t have to be expensive to be delicious! As the meat slow cooks in the cream sauce, it helps tenderize it to become amazing!
