Pork Tenderloin With Nutty Pear Stuffing

“I know, I know. Lots of people don't like the idea of meat and a fruit combined. This one is different. It's subtle, it's easy to prepare and it's company-worthy. But don't save it for company. This recipe has converted 2 picky teens and an Italian DH (and by the by, let's not even START talking about accepting nuts in a recipe...almonds may be substituted, but my clan only signs off on the hazelnuts).”
