I'M VERY FOND of honey-mustard salad dressing, so I attempted to duplicate that taste when I created this pork recipe. My husband thinks it's delicious. It's quick and easy to prepare. Sometimes I'll put a sweet potato in the oven to bake at the same time, then I'll have a complete meal for two. -Audrey Thibodeau, Mesa, Arizona

"I made this tonight because I wanted to try out my new Cooking For Two magazine, of course I doubled it being a family of three. We loved it.

A few minor changes for our Taste, I cooked it all together instead of leaving the peppers out until the last 15 min and added a bit of ginger powder. I also added a very small chopped zucchini and a touch of garlic. Very nice, something new and not too heavy. Thanks!!"

"This was VERY good! My husband loved it, and said "keep this recipe!" I would cut the baking time down by 7-10 minutes. They were just slightly dry for my taste, but overall it was fabulous! Served over rice, the sauce was excellent!"
