If you've just pan-seared a steak, use that pan instead of a saucepan. The fond stuck to the bottom of the pan will enhance the flavor of the sauce.
- In a pan, heat the margarine over medium heat until slightly bubbling. Add the mushrooms and shallots and sauté until the mushrooms are soft and the shallots are translucent, about 5 minutes.
- Add the wine, continue cooking until the liquid boils, then lower the heat and simmer until the 3/4 of the liquid has evaporated.
- Add the water or stock and the diced tomato, then lower heat to a simmer and reduce for about 5 minutes.
- Stir in the chopped tarragon and serve right away.
