Back when I was a girl, I couldn't wait until I was grown up and could start cooking for my own family! Now that I am, I really enjoy using pork. The tender meat and the rich mustard sauce in this recipe are delectable together. -Irma Pomeroy, Enfield, Connecticut

"I've made these for years. The entire family looks forward to it. I've used chops more times than not. So happy the recipe is still here!!"

"Very easy to make, and so flavorful. I was out of tarragon, so I used sage instead, and loved it! My kids are not mustard lovers, which made this recipe all the much more appealing as you can serve the sauce on the side and satisfy everyone!"

"The flavor in this sauce is wonderful! I've made it with pork chops but the tenderloin is obviously better. Delicious!"
