Pork works well with many kinds of fruit, but the subtle sweetness of fresh figs (plus port wine) makes for an especially seductive combination.

    I used our own frozen figs and they were great. Surprised at how much alcohol was in the Port -- it flamed FOREVER! Overall, the sauce was excellent and very quick and easy. Both my husband and I were surprised at how light tasting the sauce was. I suppose the color led us to think it would be heavier. Will certainly make it again.

    This recipe was soooo easy. I added a bit of apple juice to the port, as I found it too sharp. You could use thick apple slices instead of figs - just cook them a bit longer in the port sauce

    So delicious and easy! My family loved it. I used merlot because it was handy, and threw in a sprig of fresh rosemary while the sauce was reducing. This is good enough for company :-)

    FYI fresh figs are often unavailable during winter months. I wanted to make this recipe but there were no figs available at any vendors at Pike Place Market where I shop! Will instead be making Lucinda Scala Quinn's Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Fig Chutney, because dried figs were available at a specialty foods store nearby. Will make this in the future!

    Thanks! When I thought to myself, "Figs would be great with pork loin," I figured there had to be a recipe on Martha Stewart! It was simple and delicious. I added a little bit of aged balsamic vinegar and cooked the pork loin with fresh thyme and just a bit of freshly clipped rosemary. Served it with lentil soup, rosemary potatoes and roasted broccoli and carrots. It was a hit!
