    This dish was delicious. I only had stone ground mustard so I used that. I think it added to it. My husband who can be very picky and loved it. Will certainly make this again.

    Delicious and very quick and easy to make. I had enough sauce that I kept it in a jar in the fridge and we fixed more pork chops later in the week as we enjoyed them so much!

    I've made this many times in my household, it is a staple! The only thing I change is, I use sweet tea instead of coffee, since I feel coffee gives it a VERY strong flavor. If you're not a fan of coffee flavor, try the sweet tea method. Richer and a sweeter flavor. And I double the glaze so we can also use it on mashed potatoes, or veggies. Delicious!

    There are four very strong flavors coming together here and the combination just didn't work for me. The leftovers, with time for the flavors to marry, tasted much better.

    I didnt have dijon mustard so i used regular mustard. And I didnt have regular coffee. I used Kona Coffee chocolate macadamian flavored. it turned out really good.

    Quick, easy and delicious. The pork chops were flavorful and juicy, done perfectly without drying out.

    This was wonderfully aromatic while cooking and wow'd everyone at the table. I threw a coiuple sliced cooking apples in the sauce and served them on the side. Husband wanted to know when we get to have them again!
