Reviews for Pork Chops with Mushroom-Tarragon Sauce
"The hubs LOVED this. Chops turned out perfect. A previous reviewer is correct. One does need more broth, otherwise the gravy comes out gummy. No worries though, there was plenty left in the can."
"I used the wine and it was very good."
"Really good! My husband & I enjoyed this!"
"Very tasty but i agree with another reviewer that there is too much flour. Next time I will cut the amount in half"
"Very, VERY good!!! made with the vegetable and parley pilaf... I just need to time things better to make both, but everyone loved both dishes!!!"
"I used chicken broth instead of wine but otherwise made exactly as written. The chops were nice and tender and the flavor was mild and good but next time I would cut back on the flour or add more liquid. As soon as the flour mixture hit the pan it turned into glue. Luckily I had plenty of broth on hand and added some more until it had a gravy like consistency."
