Directions

  1. Put half the butter in a large, deep skillet; turn heat to medium-high.
  2. When the butter foam subsides, add the pears and cook, sprinkling with the sugar and turning occasionally, until they begin to brown, about 10 minutes.
  3. Add in the port; cook, stirring gently, until the mixture becomes saucy, just a minute or two.
  4. Add in the remaining butter; turn the heat to low; cook until the butter melts and coats the pears; serve immediately.
