Combining juicy pork tenderloin with fresh pear slices and red onion, this simple dish is perfect for an autumn evening. Honey and balsamic vinegar form an appealing glaze on the meat.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pork tenderloin, about 1 lb., trimmed of excess fat
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 red onion, cut into 1/8-inch wedges
  • 4 Forelle or Bosc pears, cored and each cut into 8 wedges
  • 2 Tbs. honey
  • 1 Tbs. balsamic vinegar
  • Leaves from 12 fresh thyme sprigs

Directions:

Preheat an oven to 400°F.

Season the pork tenderloin well with salt and pepper. In an ovenproof sauté pan over medium-high heat, warm the olive oil until shimmering. Sear the pork, turning occasionally, until well browned, 6 to 8 minutes total. Transfer to a plate.

Add the onion and pears to the pan and sauté for 1 minute. Return the pork to the pan and drizzle with the honey and vinegar. Scatter the thyme leaves in the pan. Transfer to the oven and roast until the juices run clear when the pork is pierced with a knife, 15 to 20 minutes.

Transfer the pork to a cutting board, cover loosely with aluminum foil and let rest for 5 minutes. Cut into slices 1/2 inch thick. Divide the pork, pears and onion wedges among 4 individual plates, drizzle with the glaze from the pan and serve immediately. Serves 4.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Easy and Great Flavors! This recipe requires little effort, and the flavors are amazing! I have prepared it 2 times now, and I agree that there are not enough drippings to go around - double the honey and vinegar. I served it with glazed carrots and polenta. Yum!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ohhhhhh my... This is a dish that had me moaning and sighing all the way through....If you love nuveau cuisine with a little touch of comfort food, this is your golden egg. After my first taste, while it was still simmering, I was writing it down on an index card for my "favorite recipes" box!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and Excellent Made this for a weeknight dinner and it was pretty simple and quite good. I will definitely make it again but I would double the amount of honey and balsamic because I didn't really have any pan drippings to glaze with at the end. Other than that it was great!
