SLOW COOKER PORK CHOPS WITH PEACH SAUCE is everything that a good pork dish needs to be. Tender meat with a sweet and savory sauce! It will easily be a family favorite.
Back to School season is here!!!! My kids head back to school in two weeks and I can’t wait. There is a part of me that wishes we had more time to explore Oregon but there is an even bigger part of me that wants to catch up on work, reduce the size of the laundry mountain that has been growing all summer, and drink coffee in quiet. Awwww, quiet. To get any right now I’ve been staying up till the wee hours of the night and let me tell you I’m not a night person. It just seems like the only time I can get any work done. As school starts back up I love to pull out my slow cooker for dinners. I like to get dinner started and cooking when I don’t have anyone running around asking me the same question twenty times. Plus, you can’t beat smelling dinner coming from the kitchen all day long!
This Slow Cooker Pork Chops with Peach Sauce is everything that I love in a pork dish. I always have to have some kind of a sweet sauce or side when I serve pork. A favorite are these baked apples when I make a pork roast but this peach sauce is different. It has a sweet and savory thing happening all on it’s own. It’s not as sweet as you might think being that it’s made with a lot of peaches but it’s also got a lot of the pork cooking liquid in there so it’s a cross between a sauce and a gravy. I also need to have tender pork and these pork chops delivered. There’s no need for a knife with these. They’re fork tender and make me so happy. I served them with a big pile of buttery rice and a salad and dinner was done! I can see this dish coming back to my kitchen very shortly!
