It’s National Peach Month!

That means there are tons of recipes out there using peaches, so why one more?

Easy.

This one is different. Why? Because as you may have noticed from the title, it’s a savory dish. And it’s super easy to make, doesn’t heat up the house, and it’s healthy!

Perfect for an easy weekday meal or serving to company, it’s one of my favorite summer dishes!

The peaches give it a slight sweetness, but balanced with the pork chops and onions, it’s a truly satisfying meal.

It’s also naturally gluten-free and paleo. And if you watch how many of the peaches you eat, fits well into a keto meal plan as well.

I like to make this when I have friends over for a quick, easy BBQ because total prep and cooking time is about half an hour. I usually serve it with a light salad.

Ingredients

  • Bone-in thin-cut pork chops (you really want the thin, fattier cuts for this so they’ll cook quickly and avoid drying out!) I use rib chops.
  • Peaches (They should still be firm, not quite ripe is best!)
  • Red onion
  • Other vegetables as desired for grilling (I like summer squash with this recipe)
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Garlic powder
  • Onion powder

Directions

  • Season the pork chops with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder to taste then drizzle with olive oil and let sit to marinade.
  • Slice peaches and onions (and other vegetables) in ¼ inch thick slices (same way you would cut onion or tomato for a hamburger!)
  • Spread peaches and veggies out in a single layer on a tray or sheet pan, then season with salt and pepper and drizzle with olive oil.
  • Make sure your grill is nice and hot (I prefer a hot grill 450–500 degrees)
  • Grill pork chops until desired temp (I prefer medium for pork)
  • Grill peaches and onions (and any other veggies) until tender and caramelized
  • Serve immediately!

Modifications

You can always substitute nectarines if you don’t have peaches. White onions or green onions work just as well as the red! You can also leave out the garlic and/or onion powder if you don’t eat those foods, really the pork is tasty enough without it!

Tips

Don’t overcook the pork! These cuts can dry out quickly, so be sure to keep a close eye on them.
