Pork Chops with Pear Sauce

Nothing brings out the flavor of pork chops better than a little bit of sweetness!

Pork Chops with Pear Sauce

3 pears, peeled and chopped
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon lemon juice
3/4 cup apple cider
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon rubbed sage
1 teaspoon garlic powder
salt and pepper
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
4 boneless pork chops

In a medium saucepan mix pears, brown sugar, butter, lemon juice, apple cider, and cinnamon. Bring to boil and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally until pears are soft. Using an immersion blender or food processor, blend sauce until smooth.

Season pork chops with salt, pepper, garlic powder and sage. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat and sear pork chops on each side (about 2 minutes per side). Transfer pork chops to glass baking dish and top with pear sauce. Bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees.
