READY IN: 1hr 10mins

Another recipe from Southern Living, haven't tried it yet, sounds very good though. I like the idea of prunes and olives (my husband and I love picadillo with the raisins and olives...).

this is a wonderful recipe I have been making since 1997! Our version has less brown sugar (1/4 cup) & uses 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar with 1/4 cup red wine vinegar. We also sometime throw in a handful of dried apricots & use whole unpitted prunes (harder to locate nowadays). Lovely rich delicous savory, sweet & slightly sour. Serve with simple rice & green salad _ this is a FANTASTIC recipe. Thanks for posting Codychop!
