  • 2 cups blackberries
  • 2 garlic cloves minced

  • 1 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar

Make the Blackberry Bacon Sauce

  • Add mushrooms and garlic to the pan. Bring heat down to medium.
  • Stir until ingredients are well mixed. Slowly add balsamic vinegar and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Add blackberries, bring heat to low. Simmer for 5-7 minutes.
  • Keep sauce on the stovetop on low heat until the pork is done. Plate and serve immediately.
