    This recipe needs a little tweaking to get more stars. It is way too lemony tasting. I'd say cut back on the lemon juice and add more Dijon to make the sauce taste better. The lemon pepper on the pork was fine though.

    I thought that these flavors did not come together at all. There definitely was something lacking in this recipe.

    It received mixed reviews. My son really liked it, but I thought it was too lemony.

    My husband made this for us. Quite good, but there was a little too much lemon pepper flavor. Don't know if he spiked the dish with more than called for. We'll make it again.

    Loved this!! It's'so easy to make but looks like it was complicated. Great meal for guests. Only thing I would do different is double the sauce - it was so good we wanted extra!

    I do not normally like Dijon Mustard, but the sauce is AMAZING! This recipe is simple to make and very tasty! The pork did take longer than 4 minutes to cook (I think I cut them too thick).

    This was OK nothing to write home about. There are some much better pork/dijon dishes on this website.
