Pork Sauce Moutarde

A classic home, Eva’s favorite dish! Easy to do, but do not go easy on the mustard. A small pot is used and none is left at the end. This recipe is nammed “Roti de porc sauce Robert” in France. I always thought my Mom was joking around when giving the name around the table. But it happens to be the name I’ve found in the classic “Larousse grande cuisine, 1880 edition” !!!
