      This was just fantastic. Made this for dinner this evening. There were just three of us and not a bite left. Very easy to make yet so elegant. I will definitely make this again.

      This had a nice flavor. If you don't care for tarragon, no worries. I could hardly taste it as a flavor on it's own. I do like tarragon and will add lots more next time. Or maybe use fresh. In any case, I would not hestitate to serve this for company. It's so quick and easy. And the meat was sooo tender. Pretty on the plate, too. :)

      What a tasty sauce this has! I will use less salt next time though. I also roasted the meat in the same cast iron skillet I browned it in. The beef was nice and juicy. I think this would work nicely with cutletts too. I'll be making this again. Thanks.
