Reviews for Pork Chops with Sliced Pears
Sort By :
I am an elderly care giver and the first time I made the recipe for a couple I used to care for. Not only did they love it I also made it for my family and they loved it as well. I have made this recipe several times and am not a big pork fan, however this makes me reconsider. I plan on making it for my brother's family while visiting in Maryland.
By all means, yes, reduce the sauce.
This recipe was so good I wouldn't be surprised if I got a proposal from my boyfriend tonight! I took one of the reviewers advice and reduced the remaining sauce with smashed pears and spoonful of brown sugar to a syrup. Poured that on top and AMAZING! Recipe was super easy-which I need more of in my life.
Made these for dinner everyone loved them. Will definitely make again. Thanks for another great recipe!
This was wonderful. I did however:
1. cook extra pears in broth then smashed them with a fork.
2. after the chops were done I removed them and reduced the broth to a thin syrup which I drizzled over the chops.
