Honey Dijon Pork

 Honey Dijon Pork
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
