"I followed directions, made no changes but wouldn't make this again. Entirely too sweet."

"Absolutely delicious! It's a big hit everyone keeps asking me to make this one. The only thing I did different is add a half cup of brown sugar."

Sounds good except for the Dijon mustard.  Wonder if regular yellow mustard would work.
i don't think plain yellow mustard would work- the dijion helps give it it's flavor but don't worry, if you don't like dijion, it's not an overwealming flavor in it.

"I've cooked alot of Pork Loin, but this was the best ever! My husband couldn't stop going on and on about how juicy and tasty it was. He even noticed how pretty it was when it came out of the oven! My family couldn't get enough of it and the recipe will definitely be going at the top of my list of "make again dishes!""
