Reviews for Tangy Apricot Pork Chops
"This was a very quick and easy main dish with good flavor. I used a whole grain Dijon mustard, which gave more flavor. I will also use a apricot preserve with more coarsely chopped fruit the next time I prepare this dish."
"Easy to make with ingredients likely to be on hand. The recipe doubled well and my husband actually gave it 4 1/2 stars."
