Beef Tarragon With Mushrooms

Since I accidently caught my finger in my hall closet getting some TP today (yes TMI) I wasn't able to craft so I did the next best thing that I would like to call food for OUR soul. I'm in love with this recipe, it happens to be a family favorite.  Of course I have my own idears of adding here and there to give a bit more flavor with added sauce instead of the heartburn fever flour texture & I'm quite sure you will find yourself doing the same.  I don't have any fancey schmancy dishes, or backdrops to make the photos as delicious as this easy to create meal.  What I do have is the desire to create a Yummy Fam Fav with a bit of dishy dash of LOVE.   You can view all of the photos by becoming a Creatique FB Fan via the link to the right.  Enjoy!
 Beef Tarragon Sirloin W/Mushrooms & Chives
 The Finished Delicious Dinner Ready To Eat
 My DH had to just add shredded Colby Jack to the top.  I personally would of put some sort of crust crumbs & I always add .... mayo & soy sauce to my broccoli...sounds Uhm, well just try it. 
Ingredients: 
1 Tbl butter or margarine
1 1/2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
1/4 cup chopped green onions
2 pounds of beef sirloin tips (or beef stew meat)
1 tsp. of dried tarragon (VERY IMPORTANT)
2 cups of beef broth, divided
3 Tbl all-purpose flour
Serves: 4
If your not a beef eater you can easily substitute this for chicken broth and chicken :)
Shopping List: 
Mushrooms, Green Onions, Beef Sirloin Tips, Beef Cubes (red), dried tarragon, butter, flour
Create: 
1. If it is beef I prep the meat by washing it, then boiling it in the beef cubes to make the meat really tender, then I fry it with the chives and mushrooms in a pan. 
2. Melt Butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add mushrooms, green onions and beef. Cook, covered, stirring occasionally, until beef is browned (or chicken is cooked through), approx. 10 min.
3. Reduce heat to a medium0low.  Sprinkle tarragon over beef and vegetables in a skillet.  Combine 1/4 cup broth and flour in a small bowl; stir until smooth.  (I usually sprinkle the flower and tarragon over the top and add more broth from the boil to consistency you want).  
4.  Pour flour mixture over beef in skillet; stir.  Cook, stirring continually about 2 min. Stir in remaining broth. Cook, stirring continually, until sauce thickens (I like mine a bit more saucy), about 5 min.
