Reviews for Mustard-Apricot Pork Chops
"This was just ok, If I make it again, I would definitely grill rather than broil."
"Talk about easy and impressive!"
"The combination of sweet apricot preserves and tangy Dijon mustard is perfect for pork. I have also done something similar to this with blackberry preserves and bourbon. Exermom - I have a cookbook program that allows me to calculate the nutritional values based on ingredients, quantities & number of servings. It's usually close to recipes that have the info. Without the rice, this one comes out as follows: 365 calories, 9g of fat, 150mg cholesterol, 220 mg sodium, and 19g carbs. Hope the info helps."
"This looks really good. Wish it had the nutritionials, tho (sodium, etc)ferrettmama - "small minds use small words""
