As others have said I wasn’t sure about cheese with meat but it is delicious. I make the stated amount of sauce for two chops. I don’t like meat without sauce but I don’t always want gravy so this fits the bill. Quick easy and delicious.

I’m not sure about this dish. My chops were very thick and needed about 25 minutes for the first cooking. The topping partly slipped off during the cooking but that could have been my fault as I doubled the amount of creme fraiche, I should have upped the mustard (Dijon). I also found the pork to be quite rich although it was moist.

Made for my carnivore husband and it was a hit. Very easy to do but brightens up a staple. Served with hasselback potatoes and vegetables. Would definitely make again.

Great. I did mine with St Agur Cheese topping. Delicious.

what a winner - was very sceptical. Pork and cheese? But listened to the reviews and made it with pork chops. SOOOOO good - doing it with fish tonight. A firm favourite - and so easy.

Love this recipe. I always double up on the sauce. The chops cook perfectly ie they don’t dry out; and the sauce is brilliant on fish too.

Wonderful recipe. With minimum dishes! The meat was very good, soft and tasty. There are endless options for variation on this recipe. One can use Dijon mustard or my personal favourite Tarragon Old-Fashioned Mustard from Austria. The meal with sour cream combined with whole-grain mustard can be for someone a bit more sour. Maybe the regular cream mixed with Dijon mustard will be more tasty. I have used hard cheese from Central Switzerland with sour cream and organic whole-grain mustard with red wine. Delicious!

What a handy recipe, so tasty and so quick! Would have preferred the pork not to have been swimming in quite so much fat in the tray afterwards, so will either bake on a grill rack next time, or just remove the fat first. Will definitely make again.

Super tasty. I used double cream, soured with a squeeze of lemon. Served with cavolo Nero, petit pois and Jersey Royals - good enough to call a Saturday evening treat! Definitely will become a regular.
