Pork Tenderloin with Pears and Perry
Preparation and Cooking Time: 40mins
- 600g pork tenderloin, trimmed
- 1 tsp. olive oil
- Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 30g unsalted butter
- 2 firm-ripe Beurre Bosc pears, each peeled, cored, and cut into 8 wedges
- 1/2 cup finely chopped shallots
- 2 Tbs. sherry vinegar
- 2/3 cup Perry, we recommend ‘The Berg’ by Paracombe Premium Perry
- 3 Tbs. heavy cream, Tweedvale Pure Double Cream works a treat
- 1-1/2 tsp. Dijon mustard
- 2 tsp. fresh thyme, minced
- Position a rack in the center of the oven and heat the oven to 500°F (260°C).
- Pat the pork dry, rub it with the oil, and season generously with salt and pepper. Heat a heavy-duty 12 inch skillet over medium-high heat until very hot, and then sear the pork on all sides until golden brown, about 6 minutes total. Transfer to a small rimmed baking sheet and roast until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 140°F (60°C), 10 to 15 minutes. Transfer the pork to a cutting board, tent with foil, and let rest for 5 minutes.
- Meanwhile, melt half the butter in the skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pears in a single layer and cook, flipping once, until just tender and lightly browned, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and keep warm.
- Add the remaining butter and the shallots to the skillet and cook, stirring, over medium heat until the shallots are just beginning to turn golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the vinegar and stir, scraping up any brown bits. Add the perry and cook until slightly reduced, 2 to 3 minutes. Whisk in the heavy cream, mustard, and thyme and cook until slightly thickened, about 3 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Thyme Roasted Pork with Pan-Fried Pears and Perry Gravy
Preparation Time: 25mins
Cooking Time: 120mins
- 2kg leg of pork boned, or belly, rolled and scored
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 8 sprigs of fresh thyme
For the gravy
- 500ml Perry, we recommend ‘The Berg’ by Paracombe Premium Perry
- 100ml double cream
For the pears
- 25g unsalted butter
- 3 Beurre Bosc pears, peeled, cored and cut into quarters, lengthways
- 1 tbsp demerara sugar
For the roasted garlic and shallots
- 18-24 shallots, about 400-540g
- 12 cloves garlic
- Remove the pork from the fridge about 30 minutes before cooking. Preheat the oven to 220°C, gas mark 7, and dry the pork with a kitchen paper towel.
- Check the pork skin has been thoroughly scored, and if necessary, add a few more cuts using a very sharp knife. Rub the salt thoroughly into the skin, then tuck the thyme into the centre of the meat. Place the pork in a roasting tray.
- Calculate the cooking time for the pork, allowing 25 minutes per 500g plus 25 minutes. Roast the pork on the highest shelf for the first hour then turn the oven down to 190°C, gas mark 5 for the remaining cooking time.
- Meanwhile, to cook the roasted garlic and shallots, pour boiling water over the shallots and leave for 5 minutes: this makes it easier to remove the skins. Put the whole garlic cloves in a small saucepan with boiling water and cook for 5 minutes. Run the garlic cloves under cold water and peel off the skins.
- Add the shallots and garlic to the pork about 45 minutes before the end of the roasting time. When the pork is cooked and the juices run clear, transfer it onto a serving plate, keep warm and leave to rest for 15 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the shallots and garlic into a heatproof serving dish, leaving behind a few of the garlic cloves to mash into the pan juices. Keep warm until you’re ready to serve.
- While the pork is resting, heat the butter in a frying pan and fry the pear quarters until tender and golden. After a minute or two, stir in the sugar, turning the heat to low if the pears are browning too much but still not soft. Spoon into a serving dish and keep warm.
- Place the roasting tray with the pan juices directly onto the hob. Scrape in any residue stuck to the pan, and mash in the garlic cloves you have left. Add the perry, bring to the boil and pour in the cream (don’t worry if it looks as though it is curdling). Let the gravy bubble and reduce until it is a sauce consistency. Add some freshly ground black pepper but no salt as some will undoubtedly have crept off the crackling. Pour into a gravy boat to serve.
