Meat with Prunes

For meat with prunes you can use either pork or beef. I think, pork tastes even better prepared this way, especially if prunes you have are not too sweet, so I advise you to go with pork.

However if you don’t like pork for some reasons or if you don’t have it just like I did when I were writing this article, you can use beef. I must say it tastes also delicious!
