Delicious and different. Easy is good! As other reviewers, I cut down maple syrup and used 1/4 c. each syrup and mustard. Then I expanded the sauce with some chicken stock (1/4 c.). If you make this with pork chops, brown as explained then put chops in a 400 degree oven for 10 minutes to finish. Freezes well.
