I know it's been quiet on my blog lately, but that was caused by the fact that today is my first day of maternity leave and I had many things to sort out at work etc. before my big leave... Now, that I'm at home and the Baby isn't due till the 14th June I will cook more and keep you posted :)
So, as we are trying to save as much as possible (with the Baby on the way and me getting less money than I used to earn...) I had a good look through our cupboards and try to use what we have for everyday cooking - rather than buying something new. And believe me - the things I found in our storage cabinet - I forgot that we bought all those things at all!
This recipe is based on an idea taken from the "Fat free, low fat cooking". I was positively surprised by the taste - as I thought that pork and peaches won't mix up well together... It's very simple dish and easy to prepare, taste is rather unusual but everything goes well together.
How to make it...
- 2 pork chops
- 150 g long grain rice
- 1 small onion, deiced
- 1 small can of sliced peaches (you can also use fresh ones)
- vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon white wine vinegar ( I used cider vinegar)
- 1 tablespoon green peppercorns
- salt and pepper
Cook your rice as per instructions. You can flavour it with chicken or vegetable stock cube. Keep it worm after it's ready.
Season your pork and cover with oil. On a deep, hot pan fry your pork chops about 6 minutes on each side. Take it off the pan, put aside and keep warm. Add diced onion on the pan and cook for about 1 minute. Add your peach slices, peppercorns, vinegar and as much peach juice to create a sauce. Simmer for about 3 minutes till everything is nice and soft. Transfer your pork chops back to the pan, so they can 'catch' some of that sauce flavours. Serve with cooked rice on the side and sauce poured over the meat and peaches.
