Recipe

Such a fancy name for just 6 ingredients! And they're almost all pantry staples. Pork has a natural affinity with fruit and the sweetness of the pears and maple syrup not only compliment the tender pork, they pair perfectly with the distinct contrasting flavor of Dijon mustard. You can also spoon the pear sauce over chicken breasts, Cornish hens or ham before roasting.

Yield: Serves 4
Cooking time: 40 45 Minutes

Ingredients

  • Cooking spray
  • 1 pound pork tenderloin (or two 8-ounce tenderloins)
  • Salt and ground black pepper
  • 15-ounce can pear halves or slices, drained
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup

Directions

 

 

 

Preheat oven to 375ºF. 

Coat a shallow roasting pan with cooking spray. Season pork all over with salt and black pepper. Transfer pork to prepared pan. In a blender or food processor, combine pears, Dijon and maple syrup. Puree until smooth. Pour mixture all over pork in pan. Roast 25 to 30 minutes, until a meat thermometer reads 140ºF. Let pork rest 10 minutes before slicing crosswise into ½-inch slices.
