Number of Servings: 6


    3 tablespoons olive oil
    2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
    1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme plus fresh thyme sprigs for garnish
    1 1 1/4-pound pork tenderloin
    3 large shallots, each cut into 6 wedges through stem end, peeled
    3 unpeeled small Bosc or Anjou pears, quartered, cored
    4 teaspoons butter, room temperature
    2 teaspoons all purpose flour
    1 1/2 cups low-salt chicken broth
    3/4 cup pear nectar*


Preheat oven to 475F. Mix oil, garlic, and chopped thyme in small bowl. Rub mixture over pork, shallots, and pears.

Heat large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork and shallots; brown on all sides, turning, about 7 minutes. Transfer shallots to platter. Transfer pork to baking sheet (do not clean skillet). Roast pork until thermometer inserted into center registers 145F, about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, add pears to same skillet and cook over medium-high heat until brown on cut side, turning once or twice, about 4 minutes. Transfer pears to platter (do not clean skillet).

Mix butter and flour in small cup. Add broth, pear nectar, and butter mixture to same skillet; boil until sauce thickens, scraping up browned bits, about 7 minutes.

Slice pork; arrange on platter. Surround with pears and shallots. Drizzle sauce over pork. Garnish with thyme sprigs.
