Season the meat and set aside. Mix the rest of the ingredients together and use to marinade the pork for about an hour.
Place the meat, with its marinade, in a shallow ovenproof dish and nestle the pears in beside the chops. Dot the pear halves with butter.
Cook in the oven (180C fan) for 20 - 30 minutes, turning the pork once, or until the pork is tender and the pears are beginning to brown on top.
Serve with potato wedges and brocolli.
