FANTASTIC!! Hubby claims this is the best pork he has ever had - and I have been told to put it to the top of my cooking list. Thanks for sharing.
This was fantastic, and easy!! I cooked it both time in my crock pot, on low for about 6 hours. I also cut the pairs up a bit, so they weren't big chunks. I omitted the wine, only because I didn't have any on hand, and I used a 1/2 tsp of ginger powder because that's what I had. Everyone loved it, even my kids. The "sauce" tastes great poured over some brown rice on the side. I'll keep making this one!
This was very good and easy. I used 1-inch thick rib chops. I did omit the cranberries because I didn't have any. The sauce was wonderful. The meat very tender and the pears gave it another dimension, not just another pork chop recipe. Thanks for posting. I made this for Photo Tag,2009.
