I have been trying to be better to share with you our everyday healthy meals – not just the “sugar” part of our “Sugar, Spice & Glitter” lifestyle! These peach glazed pork chops were a recent recipe development, but I think they’ll become one of our BBQ standards!
Miss G has been going through a crazy peach-eating face – I honestly can’t keep the house stocked between grocery shops and I’m constantly having to cut her off, so when my brother invited us over for a BBQ and mentioned he’d be cooking pork chops I knew I had to create some sort of peach glaze or BBQ sauce to try out.
Miss G’s sometimes hit or miss when it comes to steak or pork chops but these peach-glazed pork chops were a total win for her. (And my brother was happy to have a new BBQ glaze to experiment with, so win-win.)
I used fresh peaches for this recipe, but you can easily swap in peach jam or peach preserves. (Just also be sure to take out the water and sugar called for in the recipe.)
How to Make Peach Glazed Pork Chops
First, assemble your ingredients:
- 1 cup peaches
- 1/3 cup sugar (we used maple sugar)
- 1/2 cup water
- 4 Pork Chops
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- 1 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar, optional
(Additionally, you can add 1 teaspoon of cinnamon or 1 teaspoon of cumin for a nice contrast, but we kept it simple.)
Puree the peaches with the water in a high-powered blender.
Place the peaches, water and sugar in a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce the heat and allow the mixture to reduce, becoming thicker and stickier.
Once the glaze reaches a consistency that you like, take it off the heat and mix in the balsamic vinegar.
Brush the glaze over the peaches and then season with salt and pepper.
Grill or bake until they reach an internal temperature of 145F
