Oven Fried Pork Chops with Peaches
Oven fried pork chops with peaches is a dinner that merges summer and fall.
Pork chops is comfort food and peaches is the happy food. Together the taste is great. If you remember I used grilled peaches with these amazing pork ribs and did a peach blueberry compote with these grilled pork rib eyes. Pork loves fruit, and I love an easy recipe.
All you need to do is slice some peaches or nectarines, add in some thinly sliced onion and bake your pork chops all in the same pan with a little rosemary or thyme. Either herb works well.
If you are making thick pork chops like these, I highly recommend you first brine them for about 30 minutes to tenderize them. This recipe would work very well with rib eye pork chops which are naturally a bit more tender.
Oven Fried Pork Chops are Easy and Versatile
The dish is done when the the pork chops are browned. The peaches cook right along with the pork and it can all be eaten together.
