What a perfect entree! Everyone at the little dinnr party loved it -- no leftovers whatsoever. I used dried cranberries and plum jam and skipped the oil, just searing the pork in a very hot dry pan. I also cracked a few junipr berries along with the peppercorns and sprinkled that on the pork before searing. The proportions of wine/fruit/jam/mustard are perfect and the tablespoon of butter is just right to finish the sauce. Fabulous, Chia!

This was great. I did "mess with" the sauce. Had no raspberry jam; and added 1/2 cup chopped onions and some thyme and rosemary.
