Peppered Pork and Pears

The next time you cook pork, make homemade pear sauce just as you would fresh applesauce; just substitute pears for apples.

Try this combination in Peppered Pork and Pears where ground mixed peppercorns give a slightly sweet, barely hot flavor to the pork and pear duo. Pear brandy adds an extra hit of pear essence, but if you don’t have it on hand you can substitute regular brandy or additional chicken broth.
