I make (and have posted) this very same recipe. The only difference in recipes is that I don't flour the chops before browning. The garlic is supposed to brown with the chops, this adds to the flavor of the dish. If it burns, the heat is too high. When mixing the dry mustard and salt into the sour cream, you are beating the sour cream to a "pouring" consistency. Adding a little milk to make it thinner is just fine. I'm giving this recipe 5 stars because I know how good it is. With the slight variation of no flour on the chops, I have made it many many times.

Tried it and it came out very well, indeed. I did brown the garlic in the oil before adding the pork chops & removed it (just to flavor the oil). I cut thick slabs of onion (1/4") and they were soft, but intact. I thinned the sour cream with a little milk, as I usually do. I sprinkled a little fresh chopped parsley for color. I also brined the pork chops because I find today's pork chops to often by dry because they are so lean. All in all, I think this is a 5 star for simplicity, cost and taste.

This dish was easy to make and smelled good while cooking. It didn't have much taste though and the sour cream looked very unappetizing on top. I had thinned it a bit with milk so I could pour it but it still looked like blobs on top. The potatoes and onions were very good and the pork was tender but this wasn't something we will make again. So sorry.
