Simple but nice will be having this again

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.

Didn't have wholegrain so used dijob mustard - still delicious. Served on top of leek-mash. Fab!

This was so tasty I cooked a couple of evenings ago and it was a hit with my hubby he asked for seconds. So quick and easy to cook and well definitely be cooking it again.

Simple and Yummy. I used English mustard and that gave it a zing. Served it with sweet potatoe and potatoe mash.

A winner! loved it. The basil goes so well with the other flavours surprisingly. I added more garlic for extra flavour and made with thick cut pork chops, just seasoned and browned them in the pan and cooked for a few mins each side and left them to rest whilst i made the sauce and then put them back in to heat through. Lovely, we served with buttered new potatoes and steamed spinach. Definatley will make again.

Really good quick dish that has become a regular pork meal in our household.

My fiance even managed to cook this perfectly and he's very inexperienced at cooking :)

We thought it could have handled more garlic and/or mustard for depth of flavour. Very easy though, a good stand-by.

This was great. I don't usually find that dishes this quick have that much depth of flavour. I used fat free greek yoghurt instead of creme fraiche so took the pan off the heat for a while in order to be able to make the sauce without it splitting. And I served with mashed swede instead of rice. I wasn't sure how basil & mustard went together but they really do.

This is something of a standby in our house, for days when time or motivation (or both) are in short supply. Very easy, but tasty and interesting enough for a satisfying dinner.
