I also appreciated the simplicity and quick prep, but I found the pork to be rather bland. Next time (as there likely will be one) I'll season the pork well in advance and add the thyme to it instead of the plums. Like the other reviewer I also nuked the glaze before tossing it with the plums, but I didn't re-baste and would do this next time also. I served this with a green salad of pears, dried cranberries and pistachios with a maple-mustard vinaigrette. This is quick and simple enough for a weeknight supper but elegant enough to serve to company.

This was delicious and can be on the table in about 30 minutes. We prepped everything else while the pork was in the oven, and then broiled the plums while the pork rested. We did microwave the honey-garlic glaze for about 15 seconds because it was too thick to brush onto the plums, and then basted them again 3 minutes into the broiling. The combination of flavors was outstanding, and I wouldn't hesitate to serve this to guests.

Super-easy. We prepped the quartered plums in advance, dipping the two cut sides in the honey-garlic and resting skin-side down. Then into the broiler while the pork rested. Served with baked yams and steamed brussels sprouts. Gorgeous on the plate & very good. (later that week stole the honey-brushed idea & made broiled plums to serve with CL's almond bread)

Quick, easy, and tasty! Served with roasted baby carrots, green beans, and recommended couscous pilaf.
