I loved these pork chops! I thought the mustard sauce was delicious and the flavors mingled well together. I was surprised that the rubbed sage really held its own and complemented the chops nicely! Great Job Chef! Good Luck!

Lovely flavours and a tender result. I normally do not like sweet in my savoury dishes, but the maple syrup was a great addition. In future, I'll cut back a bit on either the balsamic or the capers. In the ingredient list, I'd move the sage up under the pork chops -- simply because they are used together at step 1. By the way, the use of sage was a stroke of genius.

Very good tasting sauce. I woudn't saute the chops for 4 minutes per side after pounding them...they were overcooked for my taste. A little salt and pepper is needed with the sage while rubbing the chops, but all in all a very tasty and easy recipe. Note that this does not cut down to one serving easily as you don't have enough sauce to simmer. (I did not hold this against the recipe) If I were to cut it down to one serving again, I would at least double the sauce, which wouldn't be a bad thing for bread dipping because the sauce is very good! Very nice entry for the contest!

Wonderful combination of flavors. A very delicate dish. Easy and quick to put together for a busy week night meal. We loved this. Served with rice and green bean bundles. Thanks and good luck.

Reviewed for RSC #10. This recipe mixed some unusual flavours, but somehow it came together, and we thought it was really great! It seems that maple syrup really adds that extra something to a sauce, as opposed to honey or sugar! We thought the sauce could have done with even a little more mustard and maple syrup (for more sweetness), but I did not want to tweak a contest recipe. I used fresh, finely chopped sage, and thought the amount given was just right. The cook forgot to mention pepper in her ingredient list, but that's just a side comment. I had really nice pork chops for this, which I deboned myself -- boneless chops are hard to find in my neck of the woods ... I made rice, a few steamed vegetables, and a salad to go with this recipe. Great, we enjoyed it very much! Maybe not yet 5 stars, but the ingredients were imaginatively used! Thanks and good luck, chef!
