the brown sugar by half.

Instructions
  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Cook shallots for 3 minutes, stirring often, until soft.
  2. Add vinegar and white wine, stirring for 3 to 4 minutes until liquid is reduced by half. Add beef stock and continue cooking until liquid is reduced by half again. Whisk in cream and simmer to thicken, about 6 minutes. Stir in mustard, parsley, and tarragon. Set aside.

  5. During the last batch of frying, place saucepan with sauce back on the stove and heat carefully to rewarm. Place liver slices on serving plates and spoon sauce evenly over the top. Serve with favorite side dishes.
