  1. This is an incredible recipe! I’ve made it a number of times now, and it is a favorite of mine. For an even better result though, buy yourself a nice pork tenderloin, and slice it into 1″ thick medallions. Dredge the medallions through the dijon and flour, and then cook them according to the recipe. Skip the regular pork chops, as you never know if they’re going to be tough or not. You can’t go wrong with pork tenderloin though as it’s tender just about 100% of the time.

  2. Unbelievably wonderful. We bought some pork one day, just for a change. Since we haven’t made pork dishes very often, I had to google some, which is how I found your wonderful food blog, which has become a favorite of mine. From the get-go, this looked like the best and easiest pork recipe, which it is. It’s still tasty even when I overcook the pork. Like Bob, I’ve also made this recipe with tenderloin; it’s brilliant. It’s our new go-to recipe for picky eaters.

  3. I found your recipe about four years ago, and loved it. I prepared this again tonight, and it was just as fabulous as I remembered. Thanks for sharing…. delicious!

  4. Just came here to say this recipe got me excited about trying new recipes again. Also, the good quality balsamic is absolutely spot on to finish this dish.
