Tender, flavorful, a real hit with my family. I started the recipe,found I did not have tarragon, so I took a chance and ground some fennel seed in my mortar and pestle. It worked great! But, I did have Alexa add tarragon to my shopping list!

I've made these for years. The entire family looks forward to it. I've used chops more times than not. So happy the recipe is still here!!

Very easy to make, and so flavorful. I was out of tarragon, so I used sage instead, and loved it! My kids are not mustard lovers, which made this recipe all the much more appealing as you can serve the sauce on the side and satisfy everyone!

The flavor in this sauce is wonderful! I've made it with pork chops but the tenderloin is obviously better. Delicious!
