This is a vegan Salisbury Steak in mushroom sauce, atop noodles.  Perfect comfort food for sure, and oh so tasty.  It is such a simple recipe, most anyone can have fun making it.  Tonia uses Beyond Meat for the UN-Steak and most people wouldn’t even be able to tell that it is 100% plant-based.  It’s that good.  This dish reminds me of the Beef Stroganoff my mom used to make.  So much yum.
