Pork Chops with Sliced Pears

Pear slices make a satisfying alternative to apples in this down-home pork chop dish. Dress up the easy entree even further by adding a hint of brown sugar for sweetness. —Kathy Stooksbury, Aiken, South Carolina

    Pretty good. I didn’t have bone in pork chops so I just used boneless pork chops, which worked fine. I used fresh pears which didn't produce as much juice and stayed a little hard. I was disappointed so next time I would follow the recipe and used canned instead. But the flavors were good and my daughter will eat anything with pears!

    Dry as dry could be. Way too sweet and not enough flavor.

    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.

    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.

    I made it for my girlfriend and we loved it. The silence after our first bites said it all.

    This recipe is really good. I used canned no sugar added (splenda) sliced pears and light butter to brown boneless pork chops. The chops are moist and the pears are wonderful after they are baked. It is easy to cut this recipe in half or even thirds.
