Servings

4 s

Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons Soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger root
  • 1/2 cup packed golden brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 4 firm but ripe Bartlett or Bosc pears, peeled, halved lengthwise, and cored
  • 2 tablespoons unseasoned rice vinegar

Directions

Preparation

1 In a 10-inch saute pan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the soy sauce, ginger, sugar, and cayenne pepper.
2 Stir until the sugar is melted and the ingredients are well combined and then reduce the heat to medium-low.
3 Add the pears, cut side down, and simmer, basting frequently, until the pears are tender when pierced with a knife, about 8 to 10 minutes.
4 Transfer the pears to a microwave-safe serving dish. Bring the liquid in the pan back to a slow boil and add the vinegar.
5 Simmer the sauce until it is thick and syrupy, about 3 minutes.
6 Pour the sauce over the pears and serve immediately or set aside until ready to serve. Reheat in the microwave just before serving.
