Pork Chops with Dijon Sauce Recipe

Publisher Photo
Here's a main course that tastes rich but isn't high in saturated fat. It's easy for weeknights, but the creamy sauce makes it special enough for weekends. —Bonnie Brown-Watson of Houston, Texas

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 23, 2014

This was very good. I really like the mustard sauce. Will definitely make this again. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

For the previous reviewer who asked where the canola oil is used, it is used to brown the chops....."brown chops in oil 4-5 minute."

The recipe calls for canola oil but could not find where to use it. Other than that great recipe. Will definately make again.

This was good but not great. My family liked the smell but we were all hoping for a little bolder flavor with the sauce. I will try this again but I will play around with it a bit.

I added extra black pepper and some roasted garlic powder... other than that, I followed it as written... it was OUTSTANDING! I must try this mustard sauce on chicken and fish next!

I made this recipe for dinner. I doubled it to feed a family of 8. All my kids including my 4 year old loved it.
