Thanks Evelyn/athens for sharing your great recipe. The pork was nice and pink, very tender and juicy. The sauce was absolutely delicious. I used cream sherry and fig balsamic vinegar, it was all that I had in the pantry. It worked really well, blending beautifully with the pork. I can't wait to try this with red wine. The golden raisins I used plumped up perfectly, retaining that wonderful sherry flavour. I will definitely make this wonderful dish again and again.
