Pork Chops with Pear Sauce

Pork Chops with Pear Sauce


"I created this recipe because I have found that many pork recipes have little flavor, are too spicy, or just require too much work. My husband and I prefer sweet food rather than spicy or sour, hence a new pork recipe was born. This is delicious when served with rice and green vegetables as side dishes."

This was great! I used 2 cans of pears and just used the juice from the cans rather than buying pear juice. Also, 1 Tbsp. of cinnamon was plenty. I think it would be way overpowering with 2 T...

It was pretty good, but only because I added lots more sugar. The 2 tablespoons of cinnamon should probably be 2 teaspoons.

Tried this recipe because I wanted something different. Excellent, we LOVED it, and it's sooo easy. (If you cook down the pear sauce, it makes a great Pear Butter, spread it on toast).

Loved this recipe. I made the pear sauce (1/2 TBS of cinnamon and apple cider vinegar instead of pear juice) and just cooked it down and smashed the pears (didn't use the blender) so it was slig...

Wow...sweet is right! I LIKE that the grainy texture of the pear is maintained in the sauce....and that's about it. This was one-dimentional, overly sweet, had no acidity for balance (the lemon ...

Too me this recipe was just okay. I made this recipe with a few changes. First of all, I used 2 little Delmonte pear cups and the juice from them, instead of using fresh pears and buying pear ju...

A nice change from the usual pork recipes. A few changes though. I used canned pears, instead of fresh pears. And I cut the amount of cinnamon in half. Instead of frying the pork chops, I grille...

My family liked it alot! Would perfer to have the pear sauce on side though.

The pear sauce was delicious and I would make it again. I would, however, probably come up with a marinade and broil the pork next time. It was just too dry this way.
