There are few meats as forgiving as pork tenderloin. Even overcooked, it’s tasty. Add pear-onion gravy and we are talking over-the-top amazing. And it’s so easy to make. Try it!

1-1/2 lb pork tenderloin, sliced 1/2″ thick

2 tbsp butter

1-1/4 cup diced onions

2 pears, cored and diced

1 cup chicken broth
