- 1 Pork filet

Slice the Filet lengthwise. Place prunes along the middle. Sprinkle salt and pepper.
- Wrap the filet with the bacon stripes.
- Add the remaining prunes and the onions to the baking dish.

Bake in a warm oven at 350ºF (180 – 200ºC) for about 1 hr 15 min, or until Filet is well done.
- Place the meat on a cutting board.
- Take out most of the prunes, leaving about 1 – 3. With a stick blender, puree the onions and the prunes. Add water in case there is not enough to make a nice sauce. Taste, and adjust salt to taste.
