[step-item number=”3″ image_url=”” title=”” ]Stir in the mushrooms and cook over a medium-high heat for 1 minute, so that the mushrooms begin to brown.[/step-item]

[step-item number=”4″ image_url=”” title=”” ]Add the brandy – it will sizzle and hiss – followed by the orange zest and juice, and the sugar.
