    WOW. SO EASY AND SO DELISH!! LAYLA MUST HAVE DONE SOMETHING WRONG. I USED TWO BONELESS SKINLESS BREASTS (NO PORK ON HAND) BUT SINCE THEY ALMOST CAME TO A POUND I KEPT THE PROPORTIONS THE SAME EXCEPT USED LESS PRUNES BECAUSE A WHOLE CUP SEEMED LIKE TOO MUCH FOR TWO SERVINGS. THERE WAS ALOT OF JUICE SO I COOKED IT DOWN AND CONCENTRATED IT TO A FAIRLY THICK CONSISTENCY AND IT WAS WONDERFUL. I SERVED IT WITH BROWN RICE BUT I THINK IT SCREAMED FOR MASHED POTATOES. NEXT TIME I'LL TRY PORK AND MAYBE ADD A PINCH OR TWO OF CAYENNE CUZ IT TASTES A LITTLE INDIAN. HIGHLY RECOMMEND AND WOULD SERVE TO COMPANY AND IT'S SO EASY!! DEFINITELY COOK THE SAUCE DOWN.

    I was surprised how this dish tasted after all the great reviews. I followed the recipe exactly and thought the sauce was very bland. It really had no flavor at all. Will not make again

    After reading all the great reviews I was sooo excited to try this recipe. For the life of me I cannot figure out where I possible went wrong. I followed the recipe to the T, and although the prunes were deliciously sweet and the pork came out juicy, there was absolutely zero flavor! So dissapointing! Needless to say I will not be making this again.

    I have made this several times. It is one of my wife's favorites and guests have really liked it. I have usually prepared it according to the recipe and would give it a high marks as is. this time I varied the recipe slightly by butterflying a pork loin, browning everything as instructed, rolling the pork loin with plum mix in the pork loin, tying it together, and baking it until done (10-15 minutes) in the remaining sauce. It came out great. it looked dramatic and the prep and cooking time was under 45 min.
