This recipe was in BC Women's magazine several years ago and we love it. The mustard gives it a bit of tang combined with the slight sweetness of the cranberries.If you wish this dish can be made ahead, cover with foil and heat in a 350 oven for 20 min just before serving. March 09I have modified this recipe to cut back on the sauce. I mixed the dijon mustard with 1/4 cup wine, poured it into the skillet 4 minutes before serving and then added the cranberries. It was thick enough with out any cornstarch. Sprinkled green onions on top

This was delicious..loved the mix of flavours. =)
Great recipe for a first time craisin user. I loved the flavours-tart and seet. It certainly was a hit with the family. Next time I make it I'm going to use 2 teaspoons of cornflour instead of the 4 I used. The sauce was a bit bluggy, and needed to be thinned. Maybe Australian cornflour is stronger than American :)
Maybe it was the flavor of the wine, but this didn't really do it for me. It had a tang that was almost bitter.
