Pork Chops in Prune Sauce

Pork chops in prune sauce is a dish that was inspired by a recipe my mother used to cook for us and it combines savory spices with the fruity sweetness of dried prunes.

Pork chops are a favorite in many parts of the world. They can be prepared in countless different ways and this recipe is one of my preferred ones.
