There's nothing we love more than a great pork dish for supper in our house and this recipe is up there with the best of them. I find that apricot preserves gives the pork just the right amount of sweetness without being cloying. —Crystal Bruns, Iliff, Colorado

"Outstanding recipe. pork was very tender and the sauce was great. I did change it slightly ( what cook doesn't?). I added 1/2 teaspoon of ground ginger in addition to the ground mustard."

"Made it to recipe, but did season with a touch of kosher salt and black pepper. The wife said "This is so freaking good!" What more needs to be said."

"This is delicious! My kids and I gobbled this up. I didn't have any ground mustard, but it didn't seem to impact the flavor at all. Make this, you will not be disappointed!"

"It was great. I could not tell it was low sodium. Although I like to make new recipes as written the first time , I did made changes because of what I already had in my cupboard. I used orange marmalade instead of apricot preserves. I added a few onion after I took the pork out and cooked them for a couple minutes and then proceeded with the recipe as written. It was very good."

"This recipe tastes great and looks beautiful. Good enough for company. It was easy to prepare and the meat was tender and juicy. I doubled the sauce. I served it with smashed parsley potatoes and peas. Beautiful on the plate."
