All steak really needs is good seasoning and it will taste amazing, but when I want a sauce, this is my go to and if you ever need a good excuse to make this sauce, mushrooms are a great food, so you are adding some vegetable to your plate with this. You can choose any type of mushrooms you like, but I always choose cremini for this dish. They have a dark colour to regular mushroom and a slightly richer flavour.

    This sauce is amazing! I never thought to use Philly for a creamy sauce and I rarely remember to buy cream. I've used the idea several times just to make a general, light creamy sauce to go with pasta since discovering the recipe. Great idea, thanks!
