  • ½ cup chicken broth or apple cider, divided
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Cut a pocket into the thickest part of the pork, be careful not to cut all the way through. Season the inside with salt & pepper, set a side
  3. In an oven proof skillet, add butter, pears, cherries, onions and salt & pepper. Cook until tender, add ¼ cup of chicken broth and brown sugar. Stir until and most of the juice is evaporated.
