    The crazy season is back.  The kids are back in school (relief!), but all of the homework and activities surrounding back-to-school time can make dinner preparation kind of challenging.

    My goal today is to share a recipe that is really easy to make (less than 30 minutes), and to give you a recipe that the kids will like too.  This recipe for Pork with Peach Sauce fits both of those needs!

    Ingredients for Pork with Peach Sauce

    The recipe begins with Smithfield Applewood Smoked Bacon Marinated Fresh Pork Loin Filet.  100% fresh pork is slow-marinated and perfectly seasoned (no artificial ingredients).  I use Smithfield’s already-marinated pork quite often because the flavors are always spot-on and so easy to make for dinner.

    This variety of pork is so perfect for this recipe because it has already been seasoned, and you don’t have to wait for anything to marinate.

    WHERE DO YOU BUY SMITHFIELD PORK?

    I see the Smithfield pork products most often at Walmart, but several grocery retailers around the country carry their products too– Bashas, Winco and Fry’s to name a few.

    How to Peel Peaches

    This Pork with Peach Sauce recipe calls for using fresh peaches.  If you’re not up for using fresh peaches, you can sub canned or frozen peaches for fresh.

    How to Peel Peaches:

    You’ll need to remove the fuzzy skin of the peaches.  It’s pretty easy to do (and this is a handy tip if you ever want to make fresh peach pie too!)  Score the peaches with an “X.”  Drop peaches into a large pot of boiling water.  Let the peaches roll around in the boiling water for 30 seconds to 1 minute (until the skins loosen).

    How to Peel Peaches

    Remove the peaches from the boiling water and add them to a bowl of ice water (about 30 seconds).  Remove the peaches to a cutting board and use your fingers to slide the skins off.  It’s that easy!  Just cut them in half to remove the pits, slice them, and now your peaches are ready for anything.

    The fresh peach sauce is very easy to make.  Just combine the sauce ingredients and bring them all to a boil, then reduce to a simmer until the peaches soften up, begin to break apart and the sauce thickens.

    And there is your beautiful fresh peach sauce!  I like to make this either the night before or sometime in the afternoon.  Then it can be refrigerated and easily re-heated at dinnertime.

    Since the pork is already marinated and smack-full of wonderful flavor, you’ll just go ahead and remove it from the packaging, scrape away the extra bacon bits, slice the pork and sauté it in a hot skillet.

    The whole thing takes about 6 or 7 minutes since the pork cooks up so quickly.

    Ingredients

    SAUCE:

    • 2 cups fresh sliced peaches (skin removed) -- can also used canned
    • 1/3 cup finely chopped sweet onion
    • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
    • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
    • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
    • 1/8 teaspoon salt

    PORK:

    • 23 ounces Smithfield Applewood Smoked Bacon Marinated Fresh Pork Loin Filet

    Instructions

    PREPARE THE SAUCE:

    1. Place all of the sauce ingredients in a medium saucepan with 1/4 cup water.  Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until thickened and the peaches begin to soften and break apart a bit- about 8 minutes.  Remove from heat and set aside.

    2. Remove the pork from the package and scrape off a good amount of the bacon bits.  Slice into medallions.  Heat a large nonstick skillet, spray with nonstick spray and saute the medallions until golden on one side- 3 to 4 minutes.  Turn over and cook the other side- about 3 minutes.

    3. Serve pork medallions with peach sauce.
