You may have noticed, especially if you follow me on Facebook, that I recently entered the world of ultra bargain shopping which happens late in the day and with all this extra wonderful produce I have been busy putting all my food bargains to great use and have not wasted a thing! So this recipe for Pork & Mushrooms in a Cream & Tarragon Sauce was put together a couple of Sunday’s ago with mushrooms and tarragon that only cost me a couple of pence. I had a pork loin, cream and some wine bagged up in the freezer so this recipe virtually wrote itself!
So what did my family think of it? Well to say they loved it would be an understatement; I think there was almost a riot as everyone wanted to check they’d had their fair share and in my rush to take photos the portion control kinda went out of the window LOL! It was that good!! The wine, cream and tarragon were perfect bed fellows and if I was served this in a restaurant I’d be very happy!
