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.
