Pear Torte, has anyone made or even heard of it?

It's not a desert, not sweet, not a pear tart. My recollection is no sugar added. Made in a cast iron fry pan, with shortening, and the best part was the very chewy translucent crust that forms around the edge and bottom. Served with the meal as a side, not a desert. Was made by my Austrian aunt, who also made some other tortes (tortas?) such as meat.
