  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Add the pork and fry for 2 minutes over a high heat. Toss in the onion, garlic and mushrooms and cook for 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Stir in the crème frâiche and mustard, then tear in the basil. As soon as the crème frâiche has gone runny, remove the pan from the heat. Serve with rice and seasonal vegetables.

Really enjoyed this & will be added to my favourite collection, but we did find the basil a little overpowering. I added extra garlic, used Dijon mustard & Greek yogurt. Next time I will cut down on the basil & add some cracked black pepper corns. I may even replace the basil with a small amount of wild sage.

Excellent recipe. Only change I made was to use about 1/2 a teaspoon of dried basil instead of the fresh. Whole family loved it and I think the leftovers were even better.

Thought this was tasty, but wondered how long it takes for the creme fraiche to go runny? I had it on the hob for 10-15 mins and was still quite thick, didn't want the pork to overcook so added some veg stock.

This was a spur of the moment recipe for us and certainly delivered on ease and taste! We used 150ml of creme fraiche and threw in an extra garlic clove too. I would add a little more basil next time.

I used the sauce ingredients as a marinade of sorts; coated two pork chops well in the (uncooked) sauce and let sit for an hour, then baked the chops in the oven. Heavenly!

Delicious, served it with lemon and rosemary wedges. I didn't have any creme fraiche so I used a mix of Greek yoghurt and marscapone, both leftovers. Will definitely be cooking this again.

My husband, made this. He never cooks and has been looking for easy recipes to make and this was a huge hit. He served it with linguine and the children are starting to think that he can actually cook!

I'd also add more crème fraiche as not quite enough
sauce for me.

Have just made this for dinner today. Very quick & very easy to make. I think I may put more garlic in next time & a bit more seasoning. A very good dish that my partner & I enjoyed very much. Served with honeyed baby carrots, buttered baby new potatoes & peas. Yummy.

Made this last night. Good, quick, went well with bulghur wheat and broccoli. Pretty much doubled the mustard and garlic content. Will definitely make again; simple, quick, tasty - an excellent, rapid supper dish.

Yummy.. I used diced chicken fillets and english mustard instead. But the next time I do it I would fry the chicken first and set it aside. Then cook the onion, garlic and mushroom and put the chicken back in... but overall this is nice.
