In my post last weekend, I mentioned that we recently went peach picking at a local orchard. While Gibbs spent most of the time up on a ladder telling all of us what to do,
Casey turned out to be a very prolific picker (and eater). He was grabbing everything in sight!
When I came home with a huge bag full of beautiful, ripe peaches, I knew that I better put them to use quickly. Keith grilled these amazing pork chops last weekend while I prepared a very easy sweet and savory fresh peach sauce to go with them. The meal was a big hit with everyone in the house! Especially Casey, who kept saying, “good meat! good meat!”
If you don’t want to grill the chops, they are just as good when you cook them inside. Just see the recipe below for directions. Happy summer, folks!
- ½ c. peach jam
- 1 T. lemon juice
- 1 T. soy sauce
- Dash of garlic powder
- 1 cup sliced fresh peaches
- 4 boneless pork chops
- 2 T. steak seasoning
- 1 T. sesame oil
- 1 T. olive oil
- In a small saucepan, combine the jam, lemon juice, soy sauce, and garlic powder. Cook and stir over low heat until jam is melted (this only takes a couple of minutes). Add peaches and keep over low heat for 5-10 minutes. Set aside.
- Sprinkle both sides of the pork chops with the steak seasoning. In a large skillet, heat the sesame oil and the olive oil over medium-high heat. Cook the chops in the oil for 5-7 minutes on each side, or until cooked through. Serve with sauce.
- This also works for grilled pork chops. Simply grill the chops over high heat for approximately 4 minutes per side. Serve with sauce.
