Combine the apple cider, brown sugar, salt, freshly ground black pepper, garlic, and a pinch of cinnamon. For best results put in large resealable plastic bag. Add the lamb. Turn to coat the lamb. Squeeze out the air and seal the bag. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Remove the lamb from the refrigerator and place in a roasting pan. Roast for 10 to 15 minutes (depending on temperature of meat preferred). Remove from oven and preheat the broiler. Place 3 pear wedges on top of each piece of lamb. Place lamb under broiler for 2 to 3 minutes to allow the pears to caramelize with the brown sugar. Serve with Fried Plantains.

Fill a deep pot halfway with oil. Heat the oil to 350 degrees F. Place plantains in hot oil and fry until golden and crisp. Remove to drain on a paper towel lined plate. Season immediately with salt.
