A straightforward and delicious recipe. I managed to miss that the mustard was to coat the pork, and so added about 1 1/2 tsp with the chicken broth. I was worried that the onions would burn, so I added them only with the last batch of pork to brown. (I needed to do this in batches, to make sure the cubes would brown and not steam). I then deglazed the skillet with part of the broth. I think next time I would cut the the garlic cloves in half, and would also add some fresh chopped thyme. Also, watch the liquid level, especially towards the end. This is a small quantity and even on a simmer, it can "boil" dry. I added perhaps 1/3 cup of broth. All in all a nice recipe. I can see doing the prep and browning in the morning, so that it just needs to simmer for dinner.
