Pork with Tangy Mustard Sauce
Meet the Cook: About any side dish would accompany this entree well. In summer, we like to have our homegrown sweet corn and cheesy potatoes hot off the grill, a cold salad and green vegetables alongside it.
If you ever have leftovers - it's rare that we do! - the pork would be good in a breakfast casserole or omelet.
