This recipe was pretty good taste wise. The fam liked it. However, for whatever reason, the sauce did not thicken and was pretty runny. I put extra sauce in small bowls and had everyone dip pieces of pork into the sauce--this seemed to work well and added flavor. Next time, however, I think I will add flour or cornstarch to the sauce to thicken it up. Served with shucked corn and wedge salad. Good dinner overall.

Maybe I did some thing wrong but this recipe didn't work out well for me. First, I substituted honey for the molasses because I was afraid the molasses flavor would be too strong and I love honey and mustard together. (Could that have made a difference?) I also used boneless loin chops because that's what I had on hand. Maybe I didn't cook the glaze down enough, because when I baked the chops they just kind of simmered in the liquid. I was expecting the liquid to cook down some more but it increased as the chops released their juices. I pulled them out after about 25 minutes because I was afraid they would get too tough. I ended up pouring the glaze/sauce into a pot and thickening it with some cornstarch which I poured over the chops to serve them. The sauce did have a good flavor, though. Maybe I should have just pan-fried the chops and used the glaze as a sauce. I'm glad other people had success with this recipe, but it just didn't come out right for me.

I wasn't sure when I first made this if we would like it, since it is made with Vinegar. But after making it I'm in love with this recipe! I served this with a side caesar salad and fresh peas.
