Sweetly Spiced Pork

Rated as 4.41 out of 5 Stars

"Fragrant with spices and rich with the interplay of sweetly tart flavors. This simple pork dish is a perfect fall or winter meal. Serve it with a wild rice pilaf and some steamed greens. Complete the experience with a glass of Merlot. For a simple dessert serve some sliced fresh pears, sprinkle them with crumbled gorgonzola and dribble them with maple syrup."

It definitely is a sweet main dish, so don't forget to make some sides to even it out. Uncle Ben's long grain and wild rice went very well. I made a few teeny changes, no mace, cranberries, or...
