Bone-in Pork Chops + Sweet Heat GA Peaches

Honestly - food that tastes this good is downright sinful.  That's literally the thought I'm having with each tasty bite of this meal.  Though I'm typically not a sweet and savory kind of guy, I'm willing to make exceptions - when appropriate.  With a bounty of fresh GA peaches down at my farmers market - I thought it was time to let the peach shine in something other than a salad, side, or dessert.

Welcome to the show, peach!

This 'week-night' friendly meal is quick to please, yet incredibly satisfying.  The addition of thinly sliced fresh jalapeno adds a pop of color - along with a spicy kick - it really ties everything together.

Ok - back to eating.



Bone-in Pork Chops + Sweet Heat GA Peaches

Quick BBQ Dry Rub

2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
1 Tablespoon Kosher Salt
1/4 Tablespoon Black Pepper
1/4 Tablespoon Red Pepper
1/4 Tablespoon Paprika
1/4 Tablespoon Garlic Powder

Mix all ingredients until thoroughly combined.

Chops + Peaches

1 Teaspoon EVOO
2 Bone-in Pork Chops
4 GA Peaches, pit removed and cut 8 slices
1 Fresh Jalapeno, very thinly sliced

Preheat a cast iron skillet over medium high heat.  Season chops liberally on both sides, add to skillet.  Scatter sliced peaches around chops.  Cook chops for 4-5 minutes on each side - turning peaches on occasion to ensure they brown and char on all sides.  Remove from heat.  Garnish with fresh sliced jalapeno.  Serve.
