We’ve just done a version with guinness which was rather lovely. Can’t beat the oven cooking.

Jovina how do you keep the mushrooms from becoming rubbery? I love mushrooms and they are filling too.

I use cremini and I,don’t find that they become rubbbery. A solution would be to saute the mushrooms and add them in the last hour of baking.

Your oven braised steak reminds me so much of a dish my mother used to make only without the mushrooms. It looks yummy.
