In these photo’s I show some lean pork medallions that I served with 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.

Dijon Mustard

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 which jar appeals to me at the time.

This recipe though is specifically a Dijon mustard recipe. English mustard is quite a bit stronger than Dijon and I do sometimes use it in my gravy. However, 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.

One of my favourite products with Dijon mustard is Dijonnaise, which is just perfect in a typical French ham 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.

This recipe will show you how to make an easy creamy Dijon mustard sauce. A perfect accompaniment to pork, chicken or fish.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes


  • 1 mushroom
  • 1 tbsp wholegrain mustard
  • 60ml cream
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • Knob of butter
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 200ml chicken stock
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme leaves


  1. Chop the mushroom into small pieces and fry in the butter for 2 minutes. Then add the white wine and chicken stock and bring to a simmer. Simmer for a few minutes.
  2. Add the mustard, the minced garlic and the thyme leaves and stir well. Finally, add the cream and simmer for about 2 minutes. Serve up hot.


Serve up with whatever cut of meat or fish you have chosen. For these photos, I chose a lean pork medallion, which I cooked for 5 minutes in the pan to brown it, and 8 minutes in the oven.

I placed the medallions back in the pan for the last few minutes whilst finishing off the sauce.

But obviously other cuts of pork, like a tenderloin will take longer to cook. Fish may take less, depending what it is.
