Pork is a very nice accompaniment to sweet ingredients such as fruits. During summer, a salad might be enough, but Brussels sprouts and squash will be more heartwarming during winter. A mushroom sauce will always finish this dish well.

A regular dinner or a special occasion, the marinade will turn this dish from simple comfort food into a feast.
