Add chopped bacon, onions and halved brussel sprouts to a cast iron skillet over medium heat. Season with salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until bacon is cooked and brussel sprouts have begun to brown, about 15 to 20 minutes.
Drizzle 1/2 cup of the balsamic vinegar over bacon and brussels, stir and cook a minute more.
Take off a heat. Transfer to serving platter and drizzle remaining balsamic vinegar over top. Enjoy.
To make relish, drain pears, reserving juice; chop and set aside. Pour pear juice into 1-quart saucepan; stir in preserves, onion, brandy, ginger and red pepper flakes. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Boil gently for 8 to 10 minutes or until liquid is reduced and slightly thickened. Remove from heat; allow mixture to cool to room temperature.
Meanwhile, using a sharp knife, slice Indiana Kitchen pork tenderloin into 1/4-inch-thick medallions; place in a resealable plastic bag. Pour about 1/2 cup cooled juice mixture over pork in bag; seal and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
Gently stir together chopped pears, remaining juice mixture and raisins; refrigerate until serving time. When ready to cook, spray broiler pan with cooking spray and preheat broiler. Discard the marinade. Thread pork medallions onto skewers.
Place pork skewers on broiler pan about 7 inches from broiler. Broil for 3 minutes per side. Serve with Brandy Pear Relish.
