Preparation steps

Step 1/8

Peel the onions and cut into 5 mm (approximately 1/4 inch) thick rings. Peel and crush the garlic cloves. Rinse the pears, cut into quarters and remove the cores. Cut pear quarters in half.

Put onion rings, garlic and pear pieces in a roasting pan and season with salt, pepper and sugar. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon oil. Bake in preheated oven at 200°C (fan oven 180°C, gas mark 3) (approximatey 400°F/convection 350°F) for about 10 minutes.

Heat the remaining oil in a heavy pan over high heat and brown the chops on each side 2-3 minutes. Place on top of the onion mixture in roasting pan and roast in the oven until cooked through, 25-30 minutes. (Test by piercing meat with a wooden skewer: The juice should be pink unless you prefer to cook it longer, until the juice runs clear.)
