Didn’t read the instructions correctly. Assumed I already knew what needed to be done.
Half way through cooking I discovered I was doing it totally wrong. I cooked meatballs in an, when cooked mushrooms in the same pan.
It still turned out very nice.
Next time I will double up on sauce

Less sherry, more cream.

Excellent dish though

Really tasty, light and easy mid-week meal. Great Spanish flavour with the sherry and garlic mushrooms.
