When there are fresh peaches in the fridge expect everyone in the family to ask if Mommy is making peach cobbler. Sometimes Mommy will answer, “perhaps”, and perhaps she’ll actually make it. Sometimes she’d rather eat the juicy fresh peaches as is since peach is her favorite fruit. And sometimes when she’s not being lazy, she’ll actually make cheesecake with peach compote topping. She’d make peach ice cream too someday once she gets an ice cream maker. While searching the archives here for a recipe of peach cobbler to link to, I couldn’t find one. I’ve made it so many times and I know I’ve posted them before but apparently not here but most definitely in the other food blogs I used to write for. So I might have to make a peach cobbler using the remaining peaches in the fridge to post here after all. In the meantime, here’s a recipe for Savory Pork Chops With Fresh Peaches & Onions that we enjoyed as tonight’s dinner.
|Savory Pork Chops & Fresh Peaches|
- 3-4 pork chops
- 1 tsp of salt
- 1 tsp of black pepper
- 1 tsp of cumin
- 1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper
- 1 tsp of paprika
- 1 tsp of garlic powder
- 2 fresh peaches (core and cut in wedges)
- 1 onion, sliced
- 1 tbsp of red wine vinegar
- 1 squirt of honey
- 1/2 cup of water
- 1 stick of butter
- In a sm bowl, mix together salt, black pepper, cumin, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, and paprika. Season both side of the pork chops with the seasoning mixture.
- Melt 1/2 stick of butter in a pan. Pan-fry both sides of pork chops, 6-8 minutes on each side. Transfer the pork chops into a platter. Cover with foil to keep warm, set it aside.
- In the same pan, add the remaining 1/2 stick of butter to melt. Add the onions, peaches, red wine vinegar, honey, and water. Stir then cover. Cook until the peaches have softened but not completely mushed. Retain the shapes of the peaches.
- Transfer the pork chops with peaches and onions together in a platter. Don’t forget the yummy sauce from the pan.
I served the pork chops & peaches dish with sauteed baby spinach & mushrooms, and homemade bread with butter. Don’t forget to drizzle the sauce on top of the pork and peaches. The pork chops can stand on their own because I seasoned them first before pan-frying but try eating a slice of pork, peaches and onions together to taste the complete savory flavor. It’s delicious, I promise!
If anyone’s wondering why there are only 3 pork chops when there are 4 people in the family, well, the chops were rather large so I shared my pork chop with my 6-yr old daughter. If everyone in your family can finish 1 large pork chop each then by all means cook 1 for each .
