Brûléed Port Wine Poached Pears are a beautiful and delicious fall treat. On their own, over ice cream, in a pie, or even alongside steak, you won't believe how good they are!
Peel the pear and cut it in half. Use a melon baller or a teaspoon to core the pear and then cut it into about 8 to 10 (⅛ to ¼-inch) slices per half. Add the pears to the port mixture in the saucepan.
If you have a small kitchen blowtorch, you can brûlée the pears with it instead of the broiler. Either way, you'll get a similar effect.
The longer the pears marinate, the more intense the flavor will become. It's up to you!
