I made this tonight using two large bone-in pork chops. Although it was just for the two of us, I made all the sauce as I wanted it to go over the mash we had with the dish. I thought I had enough dijon mustard, but didn't so had to use a mix of wholegrain and dijon. I tasted them and they tasted very similar-just altered the look a bit I guess. I used brown sugar and tasted the marinade/sauce mix after adding in two tablepsoons. That was more than enough for our tastes and I added about two more teaspoons of vinegar as well. This sauce would be a great quick one for corned beef as well as pork.
