This colorful dish is a study in contrasting flavors and temperatures. Sweet mingles with savory and warm mixes with cool. If you like, for a salty, tangy accent, offer crumbled queso fresco at the table for sprinkling. You’ll need a 10-inch oven-safe skillet for cooking the pork. Then comes the best part—biting into the unique mix of flavors and textures—sweet meets salt meets (gentle) spice meets cool, fleshy fruit.

What should be cacophony turns into a harmonious whole.

Tip

Don't cut the cooked pork without first letting it rest. Resting allows the juices to redistribute throughout the muscle fibers so that they don't flow out when the meat is cut, thereby keeping the pork juicy.
