This was an less than average sauce chasseur. Tomato ruins the flavor and what one expects when one want a good schnitzel .

This is very good! I've never made a mushroom sauce with tomatoes before, so it was unique. I made this for Favorites of 2009 Tag game...thanks to mikekey for putting this in his cookbook!

WOW!!! This is one of the best mushroom sauces I have ever made. Rich flavors and nice colors. Went great with lamb chops. I used dried tarragon, but looking forward to making this in the summer when I have fresh. Very easy to make! Made for Spring 2009 PAC.
