    I would have never thought of adding pears to pork but it sounds and looks very good. Good idea!

      It was really good! The texture of the pears was a really nice contrast to everything else, so it made for a nice change of pace! One thing I would change for next time though,i would peel the pears, but my husband liked them unpeeled. So maybe half and half, lol.
