I had pork chops but didn't want "boring" for supper so I rummaged in the fridge to experiment. I found the cranberry mustard and voila! Dinner was simple and flavorful ~ a winning combination after working on a college paper all day! My husband loved it too so this recipe will be seen again ~ Don't be afraid of using added flavor and moisture without being overwhelming~
