Creamy Dijon Mustard Sauce
This easy Dijon Mustard Sauce recipe is quick to make and is a great accompaniment to pork, chicken or fish. Try it with some pork tenderloin or pork chops, or even some baked chicken breast.
In these photo’s below I show some lean pork medallions that I served in this sauce. These I cooked in a frying pan for 5 minutes to brown them and then cooked them in the oven at 180C for about 8 minutes to cook them through. In the meantime, I made the sauce. The medallions then spent the last 2 minutes in the pan with the sauce. Easy peasy!
Dijon mustard is an ingredient that I like to use in much of my cooking. It is so good for adding a bit of ‘oomph’.
I sometimes interchange Dijon with English mustard, depending on my mood. You may think this is sacrilege, but often it just depends on which jar is closest when I open the fridge!
This recipe though is specifically a Dijon mustard recipe. English mustard is quite a bit stronger than Dijon and even though I sometimes use it in my gravy, I would not use English mustard in this recipe as I fear it would make it too strong.
This recipe calls for two types of mustard, wholegrain and Dijon. For both types, I used the Maille brand which is a well known French Mustard brand. It has just the right amount of strength for this recipe, and contributes to make a great French mustard sauce (sauce moutarde).
One of my favourite products with Dijon mustard is Dijonnaise, which is just perfect in a typical French ham (jambon) baguette sandwich. Dijonnaisse is a mixture of Dijon mustard and mayonnaise. Really there is no sandwich better.
What to serve with Dijon Mustard Sauce?
This easy sauce is really delicious and a good accompaniment to many types of meat. You can serve it with pork; chops, medallions, cutlets, tenderloin or even baked ham.
Here I have served up with a pork medallion and a baked potato.
Try it as an accompaniment to baked or fried chicken breasts or even as an alternative to a pepper sauce with a steak. The real adventurous may even want to try this sauce with some pan-fried white fish, like cod, not forgetting to add a dash of lemon juice.
Whatever you choose to eat with it, I hope it turns out well and you enjoy this recipe.
