Sunday Supper: Savory Pork with Sweet and Spicy Peaches

The peaches have been amazing this season. We have been making everything with them including this gem! You can grill the peaches or prepare them on the stove top. For a bonus, you can make peach pie for dessert. For this recipe, I used yellow peaches but you can use whatever kind you prefer.

What you will need

thick cut pork chops

olive oil

salt & pepper

1/4 c. red wine

ripe yummy yellow peaches

red chili flakes

brown sugar

veggies for sides

What to do

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Add 2 Tablespoons of olive oil to a large skillet on the stove top over medium high heat and allow for it to heat up for approx. 2 minutes. Meanwhile, season the pork chops on both sides with salt & pepper. Carefully add the pork chops to the pan for a nice sizzle. Pan searing the pork in a large skillet on the stove top will create a nicely seasoned crust. Sear each side for about 3 minutes. Put the skillet in oven and bake for 15 minutes.

Wash and slice peaches removing their skins. On the stove top, add one tablespoon of butter, 2 tablespoons of brown sugar, 1 tsp. red chili flakes (or to taste) to a small skillet pan. Heat up over medium to medium low heat to infuse the flavors. Add the sliced peaches and toss. Allow for the peaches to cook for about two minutes and reduce heat to a simmer. Prepare your selected vegetable sides. Carefully remove the skillet from the oven removing chops to a clean wooden cutting board. Allow to rest for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, add 1/4 cup red wine to the pork jus in the skillet and reduce over medium high heat. Plate pork and veggies. Top pork with the red wine reduction and peaches.
