    omg We all thought this was a 6! I made 6 servings of 4 oz pork chop each and came up with 274.8 calories per servings. We almost didn't make this because of the figs, bug you can barely taste them and its so delicious! We're going to make it with lamb chops next week. - 4/13/09

    I think I might be tempted to use 1/2 and 1/2 balsamic and red wine vinegar; balsamic goes so-o-o well with figs!! - 4/11/11
