You’re in for a treat today. This is one of my all-time favourites, but to be honest, I was a little nervous about mixing, pork, tomato and peaches. Turns out though that something magical happens when you pair pork with fruit. Give it a try and let me know how you like it.
Spiced Peachy Pork Chops
- 1 tbsp of olive oil
- 4 bone in center cut pork chops
- 1 (15 oz.) can sliced water-packed, unsweetened peaches
- 1 (15 oz.) can tomato sauce
- 1 C of water
- 2 tsp of low-sodium soy sauce
- 1/4 tsp dried rosemary
- 1/4 tsp dried thyme
- 1/4 tsp dried basil
- 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
Place the oil into a skillet placed over medium high heat. Add the pork chops. Brown the chops, turning once, for 6 minutes. Drain on paper towel then place in the crock pot.
Drain the peaches but reserve the juice. Place the reserved juice into a mixing bowl. Add the tomato sauce, water and soy sauce and stir until blended together. Add the rosemary, thyme, basil and cayenne pepper and stir until blended in. Pour the mixture over the top of the pork chops.
Lay the peaches evenly over the top. Cover the crock pot and cook on low for 7 hours or until the chops are tender and cooked through.
Serve with a crunchy garden salad, over some steamed brown rice or even with mashed potatoes!
