    sugarpea's Note:

    A fabulous way to prepare a pork tenderloin, assuming it doesn't get overcooked. I'm particularly fond of pork and bay leaves, and the stuffing of sweet prunes is a delicious addition. From Rozanne Gold, a favorite cookbook author. Cook time includes soaking time.

      Simply excellent. The pork was perfectly cooked and succulent and I loved the tart/sweet of the prunes with the rich meat. Will definitely make this again. Served with a buttermilk mash and roasted broccoli.

      Excellent recipe with this classic prune stuffing. I chopped the prunes and mixed them with a good tablespoon of cream...then followed the recipe as written! Served it with green beans and mashed potatoes. Thanks for a lovely meal!!
