We thought long and hard about what would be the best meat to pair pear with, and long and hard on how to best make that corny pun, too. We think we've got at least a pair of aces, if not a full house of flavor with this succulent pork tenderloin dazzled by a garlic-thyme sauce. But the proper forkful of this meal must have that subtle sweet pear, roasted with green beans and shallot. Pork and pear, what a pair!

Tip: Easy way to remove thyme from stem: just pinch the top and run your fingers down the stem. Presto! The leaves should just fall off.

    Heat 2 tsp. olive oil in a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add green beans, pear, shallot, ¼ tsp. salt, and ¼ tsp. pepper to hot pan.

    Roast the Pork, Green Beans, and Pear

    Place pork tenderloin on top of green beans and pear. Roast in hot oven until pork reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 16-18 minutes. If using chicken breasts, follow same instructions and roast until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 10-12 minutes. Rest pork at least 5 minutes, then slice if desired. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean. While pork rests, make sauce.
