      Fabulous! I reduced my sauce too just disappeared when I put it in the hot skillet and added the mustard! Next time, I'll leave much more sauce. My fault, not the recipes! This is absolutely delicious and makes a great presentation. Perfect Sunday dinner! Thanks for a great recipe!

      DEFINATELY restaurant quality! This was an ABSOLUTELY terrific recipe! I must confess, was WEARY about using white wine AND brandy in sauce, But the alcohol cooks off of course! Simply, elegant, JUST like me, Have I mentioned this is a GREAT recipe? THANKS!
