How to Make It

Step 1

Season the pork as desired.  Heat half the butter in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the pork and cook for 6 minutes or until browned on both sides.  Remove the pork from the skillet.

Step 2

Reduce the heat to medium.  Heat the remaining butter in the skillet.  Add the shallots and cook until tender, stirring occasionally.  Add the garlic and cook and stir for 1 minute.

Step 3

Remove the skillet from the heat.  Stir in the brandy.  Return the skillet to the heat and increase the heat to high.  Cook until most of the liquid is evaporated.

Step 4

Stir in the cherries, figs and half the stock and heat to a boil.  Return the pork to the skillet.  Reduce the heat to low.  Cook for 10 minutes or until the pork is cooked through.  Remove the pork from the skillet, cover and keep warm.

Step 5

Increase the heat to high.  Stir the remaining stock in the skillet and heat to a boil.  Cook for 10 minutes or until the stock mixture is reduced by half, stirring occasionally.  Serve the stock mixture over the pork.

Recipe Tips

  • Ingredient Note: You can use all figs or all cherries instead of a combination of both in this recipe, according to your preference.
  • For a seasonal twist, try with fresh figs!  Figs are in season from early summer through early fall.  Substitute 4 fresh figs, quartered, with stems removed, for the dried figs.  Add the fresh figs in Step 5, for the last 3 minutes of the cooking time.
