Wow Jen, this is total yum! I had to make two substitutions. Used regular Bartlett pear instead of bosc and peanuts instead of macademia nuts. I decided to double the amount of sauce and glad I did because we tend to like Chinese foods with quite a bit of sauce to eat with steamed white rice. The taste is oustanding and really liked the sweetness coming through from pear slices. The pear I chose was not the overly ripe one but it was also not rock hard either. I intend to make this often for easy weeknight Chinese cooking. Thank you Jen for posting another winner. Made for Asian forum's unrated Asian recipes.
