Pork Chops with Ginger Pear Sauce – Gluten Free

Adapted from Simplyrecipes.com

This is a great gluten free way to use those fresh pears and it’s the perfect comfort food for the fall!


  • 4 thin boneless pork chops
  • 1 large pear (anjou, bartlett, or bosc), peeled and diced
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp cooking (canola or vegetable oil)
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup minced shallots
  • 2 Tbsp minced ginger
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken stock
  • 3 Tbsp cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary


  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat until shimmering.
  2. Salt the pork chops well and leave them out at room temperature while you chop the vegetables and the pear.
  3. When the oil is hot, pat the pork chops with a paper towel to remove moisture and sear them for 3-5 minutes until browned on one side, then flip them over and do the same with the other side (do this step in batches to avoid crowding).
  4. Remove all the oil except 1 tablespoon of the oil from the pan.
  5. Add butter, shallots and ginger and mix.
  6. Cook the mixture for 1 minute, then add the chopped pear and toss to combine.
  7. Cook another minute and add the chicken stock, vinegar and honey and bring to a rolling boil until the liquid is reduced by 2/3, this should take 4-6 minutes.
  8. Remove from the heat and add the rosemary and some black pepper.
  9. Salt to taste and serve!
