Awesome stuff! I made this to go over a burger and it was delicious. Loved the liquid smoke and bbq sauce in this too. Now I'm planning on using this on lots of things. lol. Thanks for sharing this great keeper, Nat. It's already in my Best of cookbook for this year.

Awesome recipe Nat! Used a mixture of crimini/white button mushrooms and a splash of red wine. I served it with Venison tenderloin for DH and he was in heaven. Will save and make this again. Thank you for sharing. Made for Billboard Recipe tag.

So I decided to use these to top some fried pork chops and all I can say is Yummylicious! Will use on burgers next time!

Ten stars! I almost cut this recipe down to two servings, but am so glad I didn't! I served this alongside Trader Joe's crispy Pork Belly - oh my goodness was it good! We did have some leftovers, and tomorrow morning I'll promptly use it as a filling for an omelet. Can't wait to try it over burgers sometime. This is going straight into my faves. Oh - I thought the amount of liquid smoke would be overwhelming, but it definitely wasn't. I found I was out of BBQ sauce (imagine that!), so I improvised with Vidalia Onion and Summer Tomato sauce. So, so good! Thanks for posting!
