Welcome back to yet another super simple Thursday!

Hoping you guys are loving these quick and easy summer recipes as much as I am. If you’re anything like me right now, you’re all about an easy recipe that takes almost zero time to prepare and uses very minimal ingredients. Pretty sure I’ve mentioned this before, but I go through phases of wanting/needing to cook simple. Followed by phases of wanting to spend hours in the kitchen with the stove running…

Of course, the hours in the kitchen with the stove running phase normally kicks in some time in the fall, so my phases probably run with the seasons. Point is I’m all about super simple right now and today’s recipe could not get any simpler.

In the summertime, there’s nothing I love more than a fresh peach, they’re easily one of my favorite fruits. And while most people love baking with peaches, I love to cook with them as well. These pork chops are a combo of savory and sweet. They’re cooked in a balsamic sauce that reduces down to a glaze, which balances out the sweet peaches perfectly. The pork chops are then finished off in the oven, allowing for a nice char on the peaches. Then just top the dish off with feta cheese and fresh basil.

So good, right?

I’m not going to lie, pork chops are not my usual thing to cook. I’m much more about a veggie filled meal or a skillet chicken dinner. But every so often I’ll do a seared pork chop, and this peach pork chop recipe has been a favorite recipe of mine for the last two years.

We love this recipe over here.

And yes, I did say two years. Meaning I have held out on sharing this recipe for two whole years now.

Well, kind of sort of. These pork chops were actually a recipe that I included inside the Half Baked Harvest Cookbook bonus recipe packet for all those who pre-ordered.

If I hadn’t developed this recipe after completing testing all the recipes for the HBH Cookbook, I would have included it in the books itself. These are just that good. Since they didn’t make the book cut because I simply ran out of time, I decided to include them in the digital bonus packet.

Sooo, long story short, some of you may recognize this recipe from the bonus packet. But for many of you, this is a totally new recipe and I am so exited to be finally sharing it here on the blog today.

Also, a note about putting a cookbook together? It’s a hard process, but I think the hardest process is having to wait so long to share all the recipes with everyone!! One of my favorite things about the blog is that we chat daily, and I’m able to share the recipes that are exciting me in that moment.

Having to wait two years to share was so hard, I honestly do not know how I did it.

Kind of a random note, but thought I would share a little inside scoop into the process of creating a cookbook!

Back to these peachy pork chops and all the DETAILS.

For starters, find yourself a good skillet. I recommend reading this post and then maybe investing in my favorite skillet, the one I use every single day…and also the one I use to make these pork chops.

Now, you have your skillet, so lets use it.

You’ll need some pork chops and some really good summer peaches. I like to use thick cut bone-in pork chops and peaches that are firm to the touch, but with a little give to them. They should smell extra sweet and peachy.

Sear the pork chops in your skillet, along with a little balsamic vinegar , honey, and fresh oregano, and simmer until the chops are cooked. Now add the peaches and transfer the skillet to the oven for some time under the broiler. Just a couple of minutes is all you need to give the chops and the peaches a little char.

Remove from the oven and finish the dish with feta cheese and plenty of fresh basil.

It’s as fast, simple, and easy as that!

Super simple Thursday night dinner for the win. Now, who’s making peach pork chops tonight!?

  • 1. Preheat the broiler to high.
    2. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Season the pork chops all over with kosher salt and pepper. Add the olive oil to the skillet, when the oil shimmers, add the pork and sear on both sides for 3-4 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium and continue cooking for about 8-10 minutes, or until the pork chops are cooked through. 
    3. In a small bowl, whisk together the balsamic vinegar, honey, and oregano. During the last 2 minutes of cooking, pour the balsamic sauce over the pork chops. Remove from the heat and add the peaches. Transfer the skillet to the oven and broil for 4-5 minutes or until the peaches are lightly charred. If the balsamic sauce starts getting too thick, add ¼ cup of water to keep it saucy.
    4. Remove from the oven and top with feta, fresh basil, and chili flakes. Serve the pork with the peaches and balsamic sauce from the pan. Enjoy!

  1. I have made all of your Fall pork chop dishes and they are delicious! With peaches in season, I am so excited to try this one. Any recommendations on a side or salad to pair with it? Thank you!

    1. Hi! This would be yummy served with some brussels sprouts or a yummy side salad with balsamic dressing! xT

    Hi – I was just wondering what side dish you would suggest with this recipe. It looks so delicious. Thanks!

    1. Hey Carol! I would serve with a yummy salad maybe with some arugula and balsamic dressing? Or you could serve with some grilled or steamed veggies, like zucchini or asparagus! xT

  3. Everyone loved this dish, however I’m not a huge pork fan. Could you substitute chicken breast? I would think the cooking time might be less. Thoughts?

    1. Hi Susan,
      Totally, chicken would be great! The cook time is really going to vary depending on the size of your chicken breasts! Let me know how the recipe turns out for you:) xx

    This was fantastic and so easy. I would recommend watching the chops really carefully as they can cook faster than you think (mine were boneless). So simple, so tasty! Thank you!

    1. Hi Katy,

    The flavors are so fresh and delicious!
    This is a restaurant quality dish that is so simple to make. I added some garden green beans and served with mashed potatoes and everything was gobbled up. Thanks for an amazing recipe.

    This recipe could very possibly be one of my favorites! It was very simple to make, but the flavors complemented the pork beautifully and made for a restaurant quality dinner. It was totally random that I searched for pork and peaches recipe and your recipe immediately caught my eye. Because this was a last minute dish, I used thick boneless chops and adjusted the cooking time. I was also missing the feta, but added a wedge of burrata to the plate, wild rice and steamed veggies and we had a drool worthy dinner! Thanks so much!

    1. Hi Val,
      Awesome!! Thanks a bunch for making this recipe:) I am so glad it was enjoyed! Hope you’re off to a great Monday! xxT

    This was so good! I forgot the cheese and it was still amazing! I added an extra peach just for fun, and I’m glad I did becaused I made biscuits to go with this and the peaches + biscuits were amazing. Also served with corn on the cob and green beans, for anyone who needs side dish ideas!

    1. Hey Bee,
      Fantastic!! I love to hear that this recipe was a winner, thanks for trying it out! I hope you had a great holiday weekend!?

    I somehow have been living under an actual rock & just found you — immediately created an account & saved so many recipes. This was my first one!

    Honestly if I could eat balsamic on everything I would. But the peaches + basil + feta?! WOW. We only had boneless chops so I adjusted the cooking time & it was perfect. Woke up this AM & immediately thought of my leftovers for tonight haha

    Bulgogi BBQ Chicken is up tomorrow!

    Thanks again!
