Pan-seared and cooked in a balsamic honey sauce, imbued with fresh herbs, are you ready to take simple pork chops to the top? This easy recipe for Skillet Pork Chops and Peaches is summer-y, hearty, and simple.

Isn’t that what summer is all about?

Let’s talk about easy. One skillet, a handful of ingredients… and less than 30 minutes. Yes. Absolutely. Any night of the week.

Skillet filled with pork chops and peaches on the counter next to a window.

A few tips for choosing your peaches

Then let’s talk about fresh peaches. Is there anything better than summer fresh peaches? Just don’t ask me that during strawberry, or raspberry, or blueberry, or blackberry season. Okay — they’re all amazing. But peaches mark summer’s mid-point. And when they’re fresh from the trees, they are amazing.

But here’s a secret. I love these pork chops so much, I’ve also been known to use frozen, sliced peaches too. I thaw them on the counter while the pork chops are cooking. By the time I add them to the skillet, they are thawed. Just add a couple of minutes to the broiling time.

When buying peaches for this recipe or for grilling, be sure they are not overly ripe as they will fall apart during the cooking process. Look for ones that have a slight give to the touch.

What to serve with these skillet pork chops

These skillet pork chops are usually a one pan dinner — though I do recommend serving some crusty bread on the side to mop up all those pan juices.

However, my guys love roasted potatoes, and I love a simple green salad. So often — they find themselves together on our plates.

Ingredients

  • 4 bone-in pork chops
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 1/2 tablespoon fresh minced rosemary leaves
  • 2 peaches sliced
  • crushed red pepper flakes

Instructions

  • Preheat the broiler to high. In a small bowl, whisk together the balsamic vinegar, honey, thyme, rosemary, and red pepper flakes.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season the pork chops on both sides with salt and black pepper. Add the olive oil to the skillet, when the oil shimmers, add the pork chops and sear on both sides for 3-4 minutes. Reduce heat to medium; continue cooking for 8-10 minutes, or until the pork chops are cooked through.
  • During the last 2 minutes of cooking the pork chops, pour the balsamic honey sauce over the pork chops. Remove from heat and add the sliced peaches. Transfer the skillet to the oven and broil for 4-5 minutes, until the peaches are lightly charred.
  • Serve the pork with the peaches and balsamic honey sauce from the pan.

Notes

Fresh peaches are best for this recipe but you can use canned peaches in a pinch or if you’re making this outside of peach season.

    Delicious and different. Be careful not to overcook the pork and use rib chops if available (more tender). I added balsamic mixture last 2 minutes of cooking pork as written but didn’t put pork under broiler, just peaches. Added all together when peaches were lightly charred. Loved the fresh herbs!

    1. I’m so glad you liked them. And I agree — rib chops are always such a great choice! Thank you for letting us know how you prepared them and your review :)!

  2. I have never tried the combo of peaches and pork chops but this sounds delicious! I have cooked with many methods and gadgets but I never use my broiler – for some reason it just seems to be intimidating or something haha! Will have to break out of my comfort zone for this one 🙂

    1. Hi Dawn! I love the combination of peaches and pork chops. They work SO well together! Have fun with it :)!
