Porkchops and Peaches (from REAL SIMPLE Aug 2010)

Introduction

This recipe was made from the REAL SIMPLE magazine with a couple tweaks to make it a little better for you. The sauce is AMAZING with the olive oil, vinegar, peach juice, pork juice and onions all playing off each other!

    4 porkchops (approx 2lbs of meat)
    2 peaches, cut into wedges

    1/3 cup basil leaves (may want to tear or slice to smaller sizes to spread flavor)

In large ovensafe skillet, heat olive oil over med-high heat. Season porkchops with desired amt of salt and pepper and cook in oil 3-5 minutes each side, until done. Take meat out of pan and set on platter (need something that will collect juices!). Add peaches, onions, white wine vinegar to pan (it should smoke slightly - imagine the train or volcano at the hibachi restaurant!) and toss for approximately 1 minute. Add the pork and collected juices back into the skillet and put it in the oven for 8-10 minutes or until pork is fully cooked through and peaches are tender. prior to serving, add basil to top of dish
Fork the couscous to fluff - serve on side or as a base to this dish.
Makes 4 (rather large) servings - can cut in 1/2 if watching calories. The protein will help keep you full!

  • I subsituted brown rice for couscous (only because that's what I had in stock). It's good; but not great. I really liked the peach medley over the rice but, and I have to be honest, it just didn't grab me and say "wow what a great dinner". - 9/3/11
