Well, sorry to say, I really didn't care for this one.The recipe sounded good, but I found the sauce to be WAY too "vinegar-y" I ended up adding some more butter, syrup and even cream to counter the acidity level. We ended up with a meal that was alright, but it took some doctoring up to get it that way. Maybe it was my fault, though, because I had to double the recipe and some recipes don't double well. I would NOT make it again.
I served this for company today, and everyone enjoyed it. I kept the amount of vinegar the same, but doubled the maple and dijon. My pork was very juicy and this made the sauce quite thin, so I thickened it with a little cornstarch. I'll make this again.
