This Chipotle Prune Pork Loin was a favorite dish in my mom’s table. We were always looking forward to this one and also to eat on tortas or baguettes following day. Nothing like “recalentado”. I don’t know why but food the day after has been cooked tastes even better than the day it was served.

Prunes are also a great ingredient for cooking and when combined with smoky chipotles makes a wonderful pairing with the juicy flavor of the pork. This sauce you can also use for chicken or turkey.

Chipotle and prune are a very interesting and unique combination! My family isn’t into pork, but I’d love to try making the sauce and pairing it with something else my family would enjoy more.

I think the recipe has come out very well, but I would prefer beef as a better choice. The presentation is absolutely fabulous & mind blowing that anyone would want to give it a try.

I am pretty sure that I have never cooked with prunes before, so this recipe caught me a bit off guard. I’d totally try it, though. Your pork looks incredible, and a lovely addition to the holiday menu.
