Lomo de Cerdo con Salsa de Moras (Pork Loin with Blackberry Sauce)
- 2 cups fresh blackberries
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup white wine
- ½ cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
- 1 boneless pork loin about 3 lb., tied
- Salt and pepper
- 4 garlic loves minced
- Rub the pork with minced garlic, salt and pepper. Place in a large sealable plastic bag and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to overnight.
- Bring the pork to room temperature. Preheat the oven to 425°F.
- Place the pork loin in a baking pan and cook for about 30 minutes, drizzle ½ of the sauce over the pork and continue to cook for another 15 minutes, or until a thermometer inserted into the middle of the pork reads exactly 138 degrees.
- Remove from the oven and cover the meat with aluminum foil and allow it to rest for 15 minutes. Remove the strings from the meat and pour the rest of the sauce over the pork.
- Slice the pork and serve warm.
Lomo de Cerdo con Salsa de Moras is a traditional Colombian dish from "El Departamento de Nariño." You can also use Lulos for a delicious variation of this dish. Lulo is a fruit popular in Colombia and South America. It is known as naranjilla in Ecuador and it is absolutely delicious.
In the USA I find frozen lulo pulp at my local Latin market. This dish was heaven, and since my husband is a vegetarian, I got to eat it all. Something tells me that as long as berries are in season, there will be several more main dishes like this one.
The combination of these flavors look simply amazing!!
I love my pork too and the way you cook it looks so delicious! Last weekend I roasted some pork belly too and it was devoured by my pork loving family too!

The blackberry sauce sounds so wonderful to pair with the pork, yum!
I missed this post...hello!
My goodness this sounds terrific..instead of the apples the berries must give it an unique flavor.
That looks wonderful Erica. Pork goes so well with fruits and sweet sauces like this.
Hi. Just made this recipe for my family to celebrate New Years, and realized that the 1 tablespoon of lime juice was listed as an ingredient, but never in the directions for the preparation of the blueberry sauce....I never added it, not sure if would make a difference on the taste of the sauce.
