Makes 4 servings


  • 4 smoked LM Meat smoked pork loin chops
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large sweet onion, cut into thin wedges
  • 1/2 cup dry red wine or reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 large ripe pears, cut into 1-inch wedges


1. Preheat oven to 350°. In an ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat, brown pork chops on both sides; remove from pan.

2. In same pan, heat oil over medium heat; saute onion until tender, 3-5 minutes. Add wine, vinegar and honey; bring to a boil, stirring to loosen browned bits from pan. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
