Prep:

15 Min

Cook:

20 Min

Ingredients

1 lb
pork loin - or - boneless skinless chicken
1 Tbsp
butter
2
shallots, minced
3/4 c
dry white wine (may use white grape juice or apple juice)
1 c
light cream or whipping cream
2 tsp
dried tarragon
salt and black pepper to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cut the pork or chicken into thin, 2- to 3-inch strips. Melt the butter in a skillet and brown the meat. Add the minced shallots when the meat is cooked halfway.
2
When the meat is no longer pink, add the wine and cook to reduce by 1/3. Add tarragon. Add the cream and cook until sauce is further reduced by 1/3. Taste the sauce, and season with salt and pepper.
3
Serve over noodles or over boiled or mashed potatoes.
4
NOTE: Reducing a liquid is mostly guesswork. Simmer, uncovered, until it appears to be 1/3 less than it was before.
