This recipe has quickly become a family favorite and I even made it for company. I've used all kinds of pears with it--Bartletts, Comice, as well as Anjou. Always tasty. I made it ahead by browning the tenderloins, putting them aside. Then I made the pears, put those aside. Then I made the sauce. When it was time to serve, I finished cooking the tenderloin in the oven, warmed up the sauce and the pears. I added the juices from the pork to the pan sauce.
Absolutely delicious! The pears made this dish. They were probably a day overripe but still held up during cooking. I did not change anything. I served the dish with a side of red cabbage. Wonderful! Perfect elegant winter dish.
The sauce was very tasty but the pears did nothing for it. Just were very soft and not much taste. Might use apples next time. I used a lot more cream than it asked for and also had to add some corn starch to get the sauce to thicken. I used apple juice not cider.
This is really delicious, although I stunk up my kitchen (and rest of the house) for a few days when the juices starting coming out and burning onto the baking sheet. Can I make this outside on the grill next time?
This was a great recipe and we loved the flavors. Does anyone have any ideas how the recipe could be made ahead in order to be close to serving and still enjoy a cocktail with guests? This, today, was a labor intensive last minute prep. I would love to serve this at a dinner party but don't want to be in the kitchen for the last 20 minutes.Any ideas?
Made this for dinner last night. We loved the variety of tastes in this recipe. I did not have sherry vinegar so used sherry cooking wine and added a splash of white balsamic vinegar and it turned out lovely. Will definitely make this again.
I really enjoyed this. We couldn't find apple cider so we made some from scratch.
DH is learning to cook and he picked this to make. Was lovely; had to sub apple juice for cider and that was fine.
The recipe lists 2 Tbs of sherry... Instructions mention adding vinegar. Does that mean sherry vinegar not sherry? One or the other is wrong or missing an ingredient...
Made this for dinner tonight. It was lovely! DH and I really enjoyed the pear and pork together. Pan sauce was very yummy too! I served it with sweet-and-sour sauteed red cabbage and roasted delicata squash.
This had a nice flavor.
