Beef with Mushrooms for Media Noche

     Beef with Mushrooms is one of the dishes my son loves probably because of the creamy sauce and its tender meat. In this blog post, let me show you our own way of cooking this wonderful dish. This creamy sauce can turn an ordinary beef dish into something special because of the rich taste and thick texture that coats the beef strips and mushrooms. A bowl of piping hot rice is not enough because once you taste it, you'll be craving for more!

1/2 kg. beef brisket (sliced) 
1 small can of button mushrooms (sliced)
