    In French, Cotes de Porc aux Pommes a la Moutarde. This is adapted from a Richard Olney recipe and is really very simple and quite delicious.

      Fabulous. Made this on a night when hubby said at lunch that he was bringing a friend home for dinner. All I had in the freezer was pork chops, so I grabbed some Granny Smith apples. After tasting the mustard sauce, I added a couple of tablespoons of honey to up the sweetness. I used fat-free greek yogurt and fat-free milk with a really high quality whole grain dijon mustard (I think the quality of the mustard probably makes a big difference). The sauce looked a little iffy when I pulled it out of the oven, but it was fantastic. The sweetness of the apples contrasted well with the acidity of the mustard sauce. It was certainly NOT bland as other readers have commented. By ditching the cream and butter we saved tons of calories and fat. We served with short grain brown rice, roasted broccoli and a big green salad for a very healthy stick to your ribs meal. I noticed even the kids plates were clean.

      I'm rating this three stars because our family loved the pork and the sauce but really didn't like the apples. My husband and I thought the flavor combination was good, but none of the kids thought the apples were good at all. I'm wondering whether replacing the apples with potatoes would work. Maybe I will try that next time. Thanks, Chef Kate!

      I do not know what I expected but all of us felt it was a little bland. ! out of 3 said it should be four stars and the others did not. Maybe I did not use enough mustard. There are many who would be happy but with the bland taste and high calories and fat.
