Since we are having Elias’s birthday party today, and he has a friend’s party tonight, I will definitely be crock potting dinner. I thought I would share our new favorite crock pot recipe – Pork and Peaches.
I know, it sounds unusual, but it is awesome! You can totally make it with pork chops, a pork roast or chicken.
Here is the recipe:
- 5 to 6 pork chops
- 1/4 c. brown sugar
- 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. ground cloves (not necessary)
- 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce (I used trader joes sauce)
- 1 large can (approx. 29 ounces) can cling peaches (halves), drained, syrup reserved
- 1/4 c. cider vinegar
- Salt and pepper
Brown chops lightly on both sides in a heavy skillet. Pour off excess fat. In a bowl, combine sugar, cinnamon, cloves, tomato sauce, 1/4 cup syrup from peaches and vinegar; set aside. Season the browned pork chops and arrange in slow cooker. Arrange drained peach halves over the pork chops. Pour tomato mixture over all. Cover and cook pork chops on low for 7 to 9 hours.
