Pork Loin with Fig Sauce

Pork Loin with Fig Sauce

After my savory hot sandwiches (a previous recipe), I wanted to cook something else with the extra figs. So I created a new rich, delicious sauce using the figs, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, and a few other ingredients. I decided the perfect match for the sauce would be a tender, juicy pork loin. Putting those together makes one great dinner.

Sweet & Savory Sandwich ~ Prosciutto, Brie, and Dried Fig~

The grilled cheese sandwich is a humble but tasty treat. But what if you could turn it into a sweet and savory masterpiece! Take some sweet figs, some gooey brie cheese and some salty prosciutto, put it between crunchy buttery toast, and you've got the grilled cheese from heaven. You can serve them as hot sandwiches at brunch, or as party hors d'oeuvres. They are good with wine, too.
