    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!
