I am salivating already. I have heard before that mushrooms are edible for eating but I have never given it a try. I am surely missing a lot. Now I will have to do this at home exactly the way you have explained it. Wait a minute. I still don't know a local market where I can buy them here or I just might go into the farmland to source for them myself.

Thanks.

This looks like a nourishing and very tasty recipe. Having recently visited Hungary I am very interested to try out the cuisine of Transylvania now I am at home. I especially like the way that you have prepared and cooked the mushrooms. The whole thing looks absolutely delicious and I can't wait to try it. Lots more interesting recipes on your site - really glad to have found it, and thank you for sharing.

Great recipe. I am always looking for something different to cook for my family and this seems like something they will go for. It's always hard to find something that pleases everyone in my family.

Having been to eastern Europe recently, my daughter in particular liked some meals we didn't think she would embrace. Do you have a recipe for Ghoulash?

Wow, this site will become my favorite. I love cooking and I like simple recipes with nice flavors like the one you present here. The mushrooms are perfectly combined with pork. I would love the same recipe with chicken. I would casually accompany it with rice or yellow pumpkin puree. What do you say; Will they be a fun combination? Great article and perfect site. Congratulations.

Thanks for your appreciation and ideas, with rice we tried and it is delicious, but the most common is with different types of pasta.
