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!

**update on 12/12/2017** - This has become a real favourite in our household, and I've actually made it more often the 'proper' way on the stove top, too. Still very easy and delicious. :)

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.
