This Dijon Mustard Pan Sauce is a creamy sauce that uses just a few simple ingredients and can be paired with numerous main dishes.

This Dijon Mustard Pan Sauce is an incredibly creamy sauce that is so versatile that it can be paired with a wide variety of meats and vegetables. It can even be used with seafood if you swap different fresh herbs in for the rosemary. It’s such an easy sauce that adds just the right touch to so many dishes. I recently paired this creamy dijon mustard sauce with a boneless leg of lamb roast and it was incredible. I also drizzled it on top of the asparagus.

The trick to this creamy mustard sauce is to use both dijon mustard as well as whole-grain mustard. The combination of both types of mustard makes for a great recipe for creamy mustard sauce. It’s such a fast, easy recipe and is the kind of sauce that highlights any dish it’s paired with.

You can drizzle this dijon cream sauce over lamb, chicken, beef, pork tenderloin, or even veggies like roasted asparagus, brussel sprouts, broccoli or green beans. If you would like a similary pan sauce for seafood, swap out the fresh rosemary leaves for something that pairs better with seafood such as thyme or fresh parsley.
