Pork Tenderloin with Pears and Shallots

I'm a bit behind on my posts. I've been very busy cleaning up the yard and planting pretty flowers this week. I did manage to cook on Wednesday night. It should have been kid's choice, but when I asked them what they wanted while on an early morning ride to school, their response was silence. So Mommy's Choice it was. I had a pork tenderloin in the fridge, so I started there. I found this on Epicurious. I thought the sweetness of pears would interest the boys.

I was chatting on the telephone with my Mom as I prepared this and coincidentally she had printed out the recipe also and was planning on making it in the near future. She also told me she got pear nectar for about a third of the price that I payed for mine. Her tip is too find it in the international food section. I have 3/4 of a jar left, I should try this out!

This was a hit with Alex and Dylan. They gobbled up the pears, the meat and even the green beans, I didn't bother giving them any of the shallots. More shallots for me and my Sous Chef! They were delicious, nicely caramelized and sweetened by the sauce. Sous Chef heated up the leftovers when he got home from school and loved it.
