3. Spoon beef mixture into serving dish. Stir in remaining 2 tablespoons vinaigrette. Serve with toothpicks.
Portabella mushrooms provide a meaty flavor, but regular button mushrooms can be substituted in this recipe.
A little chopped fresh parsley sprinkled over the top of the cooked food adds both flavor and color.
