The sauce on this recipe is delicious. I made it and served it with a side of brussels sprouts, spinach and potato gratin. It was a hit with my family!

This was absolutely delicious. Very easy and quick to make too. I substituted apple juice for the brandy and used Bosc pears. I will definitely put this in our recipe rotation.
