Season a pork loin roast with salt and pepper. You can use pork chops also, obviously, but today I used a roast because it was what I had. Be generous with the S&P.
Heat a stainless steal or cast iron pan until it's rocket hot. Add a couple of tablespoons of vegetable oil and let it get rocket hot. Then add the meat, seasoned side down, and let it sizzle and crackle and pop for a good long while. In the mean time season the other side.
Properly seared meat should look like this. Caramelized and crusty. YUM!
Take the meat out of the pan and take the pan off of the heat to cool a little. Turn the heat on the stove down to just above low. Then add a tablespoon of salted butter and let it melt.
Add two cloves of chopped garlic to the butter and let it cook for just one minute to start to release the flavor.
Then add 3 cups of sliced peaches. Please use either fresh, frozen, or home canned. The ones in the cans at the grocery store that you can find in fruit cocktail are scary and don't cook well. Trust me, don't go there. Also add 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon vanilla, 1/4 cup of brown sugar, and salt and pepper. Stir everything to combine and use your spoon to get all of the "yummy bits" off of the bottom of the pan. You don't have to cook the peaches through because they'll spend a long time in the oven.
Pour the peach sauce over the roast in a baking dish and then put in the oven at 350 degrees. I guess I should have told you to pre-heat the oven to 350, huh? Well, there, I just told you. Anyway, then cover the dish with aluminum foil and let it bake for about an hour depending on the size of the cut of meat you are using.
This is what it will look like when it comes out of the oven. The peaches will shrivel a bit and brown. The yumminess will meld with the meat and you will be happy when you eat it. I promise!
Let the meat rest about 15 minutes and then slice it thin against the grain. Top it with the peaches and a little bit of the sauce. Then eat. Eat and think of me. This particular dish gives me the warm fuzzies inside. I hope it gives them to you as well!
