Raspberry Chipotle Pork Chops with Sauted Peaches

The other night, I made dinner on the fly and was looking for something quick and tasty.  I’m sorry i didn’t measure this one out, so you’ll just have to trust me with it, and go for it yourself at home if you want to replicate it 🙂

i started by marinating some pork chops in a simple marinade made with olive oil, soy sauce, worchestshire sauce, chipotle sauce, raspberry preserves, a pinch of garlic powder, and a few cracks of black pepper.  Whisk it together, and pour over chops.

Pan fry in a preheated hot skillet with a tablespoon of melted butter, cook for 5-6 minutes, then flip and cook for 5-6 more minutes.more, checking to be sure that the meat is firm to the touch, and well done.

Mmmmm, don’t they look pretty?

At this point, you are starting to wonder where the peaches come in…  I sliced up a couple peaches, and one sweet onion.  I sauted them in more butter in a separate skillet with a sprinkling of brown sugar and cracked black pepper



Then if you are into that sort of thing, you will plate up your pork chop, with some peaches and onions next to it… and maybe a little Raspberry Chipotle BBQ sauce.  It was yummy… sorry I didn’t take a plated pic.  I’m not used to cooked dinner after work.  I’m serious, I don’t know how you Monday to friday nine to fivers do it!
