Some suggestions to make the best Peach Pork Chops :

  • I like using a cast iron skillet for this recipe.
  • Make sure you heat your cast iron, it needs to be hot when you add the oil.
  • Sear the pork chops for 5 minutes on the each side.
  • If you use bone in pork chops, sear for 5 minutes on 1 side and 3 minutes on the other. They are thinner and cook quicker.
  • For the peaches not to break and become mushy, look for peaches that are not very soft; ripe, but not overly soft.
  • You can skip the red pepper flakes or add more, depends how spicy you want the dish to be.
  • The lemon can be replaced with an orange or lime.

    Oh man…this is my kind of a meal! Our farmer’s market has a wonderful peach vendor that has the best in-season peaches right now. I can’t wait to grab a bag next time I’m there. I love that you also added the red pepper flakes…although I can’t handle too much heat, I do love what a small bit of those do to a dish! YUMMY!

  • Sage

    I’m a vegetarian and these look delicious… lol! I bet it really is a delightful combination of sweet and savory flavors. I can usually adapt most recipes to a vegetarian equivalent, but this one has me stumped 🙁

  • Censie Sawyer

    Uh yum!! I need to add this to our meal plan. What a perfect summer dinner recipe for the family. Peaches are a favorite in our family but adding them to pork chops sounds so good. Thank you for the inspiration.

    I enjoy a good , flavored pork chop and by the way these chops look above, I’m sure my kids and I would find these chops sweet and tasty. I have been seeking new ways to making chops, but never thought to add any fruit to them. Gonna try this out and thanks for sharing! Pinning this!

  • Gemille Sleweon

    Vegan here, but that looks absolutely delicious! I wonder how it would taste with an alternative like seitan or tofu? Nonetheless, this dish looks amazing and I’ll be sure to share it with my meat-lover friends!

  • Ali Rost

    What a wonderful take on pork chops. It’s a quick, healthy, and easy weeknight meal. The addition of peaches says summer. In fact, I just bought some at the farmer’s market and have been wondering what to do with them. x

  • Kiwi

    I cant eat pork but I love the interesting concept of mixing peaches with poultry. I think I can try to make this same recipe but use chicken breast too!

  • Madi

    I love how easy this is to make! I try to stick to the easiest meals I can for dinner so this would be so perfect! Plus, I just love peaches and they would be so perfect with pork!

  • Savannah Herr

    Just finished trying and eating this meal. Made it for 5 people and we all liked it a lot.
    Being busy college students though we didnt have the time to shop for all the things above and had to improvise. we used canned sliced peaches and no lemon juice or zest. but still turned out great. thanks for the quick and easy meal!

    • Catalina Castravet

      Hi Savannah, you literally made my day 🙂 I am so happy that you loved this meal. I made it many times and its a family favorite, because of the simplicity and great flavor. Thank you for your feedback!
