Pork chops with roasted pears

Today was simply lovely.

After a few hours of work we spent the day hunting for Easter eggs to fill both tiny excited hands and aged wrinkled ones alike. I set aside a Terry's chocolate orange and Lindt bunny for myself, whilst Ryan bagged himself a Ferrero Rocher. Yum. After eating more chocolate than we should have, and playing more DS games than we should have time slowly ticked towards dinner, and what could be a better end to the day than roasted pears with pork.

ease: 4.5/5.
prep time:
5mins to prep pears and pork marinade.
cooking time: 20mins.
total: 25mins.

taste: 3.5/5. Ryan thought it was very nice and loved the pear/pork combo. I served it with a salad of rocket, pomegranate, feta and walnuts. I made the following modifications to serve 1:
  • 1 pork chop
  • 2tbs parsley leaves
  • 3 sage leaves
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 beurre bosc pear
  • no onion
would I make it again: No - would like to try some other pear/pork combos in case something is better.

recipe: adapted from here
