Spiced Pork Loin Steaks With Prunes

“This braise of lean pork loin steaks cooks on it's own and need little attention. Here the pork is sweet and spicy, thanks to the addition of caramelized onion, prunes, spices and vinegar stirred in to sharpen the taste. Partner the casserole with fresh plain egg noodles, and stir fried green cabbage for a really special meal. the caramelized onions, mildly spiced gravy and prunes all add to the rich flavour.”
