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.
