The house my daughter and SIL bought last spring came with a pear tree in the backyard. She did a good job of using the abundance of pears that they picked from it. She made pear cobblers and pear jam. She cooked some for baby food for Little E and gave some away.
One night, she was planning to have pork chops for dinner and wondered if she could find a recipe using pears. So, she used Google and found this recipe. I have made it twice and it has been a hit both times. There are just a few ingredients and it's EASY!
So, here it is:
4-6 pork chops (boneless or bone-in)
3 tbsp butter
1 15 oz can of pears in juice
1/3 c light brown sugar
1 tsp brown mustard
Brown pork chops in butter. Set aside. Remove pears from juice and slice. Stir juice, sugar, and mustard together. Place chops in 13x9 dish, pour juice mixture over chops. Place pear slices on chops. Bake uncovered for 40-45 mins at 350.
The chops are tender and a little sweet and the pear slices were declared very tasty by someone who didn't think they liked pears!
Here's a picture of our pork and pear dinner last week...
I'm always looking for new and simple meal ideas.
So, I love it when she finds them and then shares them!
Having a daughter who cooks is great!
