Perfect Pork Chops with Peach Sauce
Pork Chops with Peach Sauce
Pork chops with peach sauce is a simple meal that can be made in a single pan in about 30 minutes, with minimal effort. It sounds complicated, but it really isn’t, and I love that!
One of the best things about pork is it pairs so nicely with fruits and sweet flavors. Peaches are one of my favorite things to pair with pork.

Pork Chops with Peach Sauce Ingredients
Pork chops, 4, bone-in or boneless
Salt and pepper, to taste
Pork Chop Seasoning, to taste
Flour, ½ cup
Olive Oil, 2 tablespoons
Butter, 1 tablespoon
Onion, ½, chopped
Garlic, 2 cloves, minced
Rosemary, ½ teaspoon
Thyme, ½ teaspoon
Basil, ½ teaspoon
Ginger, ½ teaspoon
Brown Sugar, ⅔ cup
Apple Cider Vinegar, ¼ cup
Dijon Mustard, 2 tablespoons
Soy Sauce, 2 teaspoons
Peaches, 6 whole peaches or about 3 cups if using frozen
Pork Chops with Peach Sauce Directions
In a mixing bowl, measure out the flour, salt, pepper, and pork chop seasoning, and mix together. Seasoning the flour is such a key to great flavor on meat, otherwise it will be bland because flour tastes like nothing.
Dredge each pork chop in the flour, making sure it is well coated on all sides, and shaking off the excess flour.
In a frying pan, heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil on medium high heat, and add in the butter. When the butter is foamy and starting to sizzle and brown, add in the pork chops, being careful not to overcrowd the pan. If you’re making more than this recipe calls for, I recommend you work in batches.
Cook until the pork chops are a nice golden brown on the outside and the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees. Then remove from the pan and set aside.
The cooking time will depend on the size and thickness of your pork chops, and if they are bone-in or boneless. If you’re struggling with reaching the proper temperature without burning the outside of the pork chop, brown it quickly in a frying pan, then bake in a 400 degree oven for 10-15 minutes, and then check the internal temperature.
Add in the remaining olive oil to the pan, then add in the onions and saute until they are soft.
Stir in the garlic, and spices and cook for just a minute longer.
Reduce the heat to medium. I like to remove the pan to a cold burner for a moment right here, just so I don’t burn everything while I’m adding it in. Add in the brown sugar, vinegar, soy sauce, and a pinch of salt. Now add in the peaches.
Cook, stirring often and scraping the browned bits off the bottom of the pan until the peaches are soft. Taste, and adjust any seasoning, if necessary. I found an added pinch of salt here did wonders for my sauce.
Once your sauce is done, add the pork chops back in to heat up in the sauce, and serve!
I love this pork chops with peach sauce recipe with cheddar bacon potatoes and a hearty green vegetable like zucchini that can be grilled on the stove.
If you are making more than four pork chops, I highly recommend you work in batches and then bake the pork to finish cooking it through instead of doing it on the stovetop. If you overcrowd the pan, it will steam the meat and you won’t get the crispy exterior you’re looking for. If baking, quickly brown the meat on the stove, then bake in a 400 degree oven for 10-15 minutes, until the pork reaches a safe internal temperature of 145 degrees.
Be careful not to overcook your pork chops either, as they will become dry and tough very easily. Pork is a tricky meat to get just right without being undercooked or overcooked. Neither is a good thing.
If you’re craving this dish and fresh peaches aren’t available, feel free to use frozen peaches. I’ve made it with both, and either one works just fine!
Why I Love This Recipe
This recipe seems really fancy and complicated, mostly because the ingredient list is relatively long. But it really is a super easy recipe to make on a busy weeknight. Just take a few minutes to prep everything before starting, and it’ll all come together easier than you think!
This is a recipe that I can make for my husband, Nathan, before he goes to work in the evening and I know he is eating a delicious and hearty meal that I didn’t have to spend hours making.
Being a prepper, I have a well stocked pantry and freezer, and this is a meal that can be made with just ingredients from the pantry and freezer. That saves me money and a trip to the store when I’m already busy.
