Recipe by Papa D 1946-2012
I found this recipe in Cooking Enthusiast catalog, under the title of French Influenced. Very tender meat and nice thick sauce. Wonderful flavor. The recipe did call for 2 large sprigs of fresh Rosemary and I opted to use bay leaves instead as I don't care for Rosemary.

Really good, and I also like the substitution of bay leaf for rosemary. I didn't thicken the sauce, but spooned off the fat, and in hindsight that fat might make some pretty good gravy. Made for Photo Swap.
