Pork goes well with sweet flavors, so if you enjoy this combo, this recipe should really entice you. Cooking it is also very simple. You just spread a nice glaze of sugar and butter over the meat, you sear it in the pan, and then you finish by cooking it in the oven. And for a simple side to go with the meat, we recommend using some carrots. Their sweet and earthy flavor will go hand in hand with the pork.
