This was really good over our spaetzli and pork chops (we breaded them with Italian bread crumbs and parmesan cheese). The prep time was about twice the 30 minutes stated though.

Wonderful dish! The only thing about it we did not like had nothing to do with the recipe. The pork I used was the correct cut of meat but was tough and leathery. Bad butcher. I will definitely be making this again (and again) because we loved the sauce!
I did have to make one change. I had ham set aside and when it came time to start dinner found that DH had made a sandwich or two with it. At 6pm I wasn't going to the store so I used thick cut bacon sliced in to lardons. It was great! Next time I would boil the sauce to thicken it up some. I use 35% cream and it can take a boil without separating. Scrumptious sauce though and I'm thinking that it would be awesome to use as a topping for steaks. Thanks for posting Chelle and keep on FIGHTING LIKE A GIRL!!!!
