Pork Chops With Onion Sauce

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by KatiesMama

Very tasty sauce to place on your pork chops. The original recipe (from Cooking Pleasures magazine) calls for shallots and whole-grain Dijon mustard for the first mustard, and smooth Dijon for the second use. I'm not that fancy, and just used smooth. I'm also not that smart; the original recipe called for 2 T plus 2 tsp. mustard, but I misread, and used 2 T both times, and it came out very tasty. You may want to adjust according to your tastes.

This recipe needs changes. Entirely too vinegar-y, which I should have realized it would be by reading the ingredients. Between all the vinegar itself and the vinegar in the mustard, it's just too much. And adding oil to the sauce at the end just made it, well, oily. I would to make this again as written. Sorry but this one is not for me.
