This comes from "Pacific Fresh" one of my favorite cookbooks. The recipe ingredients - especially one look strange but this makes a very tasty pork chop. This is good served with rice pilaf and California Salad with dressing. Enjoy!

We all agreed this was absolutely scrumptious. I will be making this one again and again. I used half dill pickles and half capers. I did use the whole grain dijon mustard which worked well. I served it with Recipe #102491. Thanks so much for sharing this terrific recipe!

This was very easy and yummy--approved by DH and DD. I did sub capers for the dill pickles (since usually it seems many American recipes use dill pickles chopped up where capers would be much better!) This is definitely a keeper--I think it would be really good using chicken as well. We did serve it with rice pilaf and the sauce was wonderful with it.
