Retro Recipe!

So they were making mushroom sauce on Masterchef the other night, and I had to pick my tongue up off the floor! Last night I decided I had to have a big slab of rump drowned in mushroom sauce. I scoured my cookbooks for a yummy recipe.

I found The Australian Women’s Weekly, New Cookbook from 1978! It has a great Mushroom sauce recipe I tried out last night, you can’t beat the classics! Yum! Give it a try.
