Peaches and Pork – who’d have guessed?

So, I was looking for something new to try. I was watching Rachel Ray and she was doing this chicken and peaches thing. Immediately, my brain started to turn. The boy does not like chicken one little bit. Sorry I don’t have step by step photos for this one. It was super late and I was in a bit of a rush to get dinner done so the boy can go to sleep. I also feel compelled to say that he did not like the sauce. I did, though, so I decided to still publish the recipe.

The Pork Chops
6 medium sized pork chops
1 1/2 cups plain bread crumbs
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp onion powder
1 tbsp cajun seasoning

The Sauce
1 can peach slices, sauce reserved
1 cup beef broth
4 tbsp flower
1/2 stick butter
2 tbsp worcestershire sauce
2 tbsp soy sauce
2/3 c. apple juice
2 tbsp dijon mustard
2 tbsp brown sugar

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix bread crumbs and all the pork chop seasonings into a bowl. Dredge the pork chops on both sides in the mixture and place on a greased baking sheet. bake the pork chops for approximately 25 minutes or until done (internal temp should be around 165).

Meanwhile, we’ll work on the sauce. Over medium high heat melt the butter, then add the flour. Whisk around until the flower is all buttery and coated, then add in the peach juice and beef broth. Whisk until there are no lumps. When it starts to thicken, whisk in the remaining ingredients and simmer on low for about five minutes.

With the peach slices, I put about a tablespoon of brown sugar on them and warmed them in the microwave and served alongside the pork chops. I also served mine with some easy mac and cheese. (I normally don’t cook pre-made mac and cheese but we were out late).
