Pears and pork are a classic combination, but this pie is anything but predictable. Whole fruit, filled with pork, cheese, and sage stuffing, are surrounded by onion and cabbage and topped with a short crust.
The combinations of flavors was absolutely delicious, and perfect for a sweet & savory fall autumn dinner. This is now on my favorites list. The only negative I had was the crust. It was pretty and acted as a moisture barrier for the sauerkraut whilst baking, but it made the dish heavy and claggy. I am making this again (tonight!) but I am leaving off the bottom crust and thinnly piping some mashed potato in place of the top crust (a pommes duchesse look).
Pear and Sausage Pie.....looks so pretty and is intriguing. I'm taking a vote.....shall I make it?
So many bad reviews, and no comments! I'm so temped to make it anyway; any insight on the low rating???
