    Pork Chops and Pears in Cream Sauce

    Someone on my journal asked for this recipe, so I'll just share with all as well.

    4 Pork Chops
    3 Tbsp. Butter
    3 Medium Pears, peeled and chopped
    3 Tbsp. Shallots
    3 Garlic cloves, minced
    3 Tbsp. Brandy or Chicken Broth
    1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
    1/2 tsp. salt
    1/2 tsp. rubbed sage
    1/2 tsp. dried thyme
    1/2 tsp. pepper

    Brown the pork chops in butter, then remove and keep warm. Saute pears and shallots until crisp, then add garlic for 1 min. Add brandy and cook on medium until liquid evaporates. Stir in 1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream and seasonings until the sauce thickens, then throw back in the chops until they're done, about 8-10 minutes depending on thickness.

    I have to say, I think it tastes really good and is fairly quick to make, so it's kind of one of our go-tos for quick dinners. We also use bosc pears instead of bartlett.
    I never saw a wild thing sorry for itself.

    Thanks Lunchbox.
    If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

    No problem. We usually skip the brandy part too.

    I didn't notice it. I was hung up on how much I needed to rub the sage.

    Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.
