    didn't use any brandy, and a little more red wine, turned out really lovely with crusty cheesy bread!  -  09 Feb 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)

    Took shortcuts. Cooked the mushrooms and onions in a seperate pan with a dash of red wine and olive oil. Added the mixture to the main pan half hour into cooking time.  -  28 Mar 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
