Quick, before the last peaches disappear for the winter, grab a few and make this wonderful pulled pork. There’s no sugar which is a plus because so many barbeque sauces are heavily flavored with the sweet stuff.
Make this in the slow cooker – or roast it slowly in your oven, and your house will smell incredible.
This recipe has been adapted from Mrs. Regueiro’s Plate.
I love finding other food bloggers and I know you’ll enjoy perusing her site.
This is a great time to buy pork. The drought in the Midwest has caused many farmers to send their hogs to market and the prices are low. (“To market, to market to buy a fat pig. Home again, home again jiggety jig.” I do love to entertain myself.)
But we know that won’t be the case next year. They’re calling for big price increases for bacon and that already seems to be the case.
For this recipe I used a pork butt roast, but you could also use a loin, which is leaner.
• 1 Tablespoon olive oil
• 2 large onions, chopped
• 2 cloves garlic, pressed
• 2-3 peaches, pitted and chopped
• 15 oz can diced tomatoes – or 3-4 fresh tomatoes diced
• 6 oz tomato paste
• 2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
• 1 Tablespoon honey
• 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
• 2-3 pounds pork shoulder, pork butt, or pork loin
• Whole grain hamburger buns, flatbreads, pitas or tortillas or serve plain.
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
Add the onions and cook until just starting to turn soft, about 3-5 minutes.
Stir in the garlic and peaches and sauté until just fragrant, about 1 minute.
Add the tomatoes, tomato paste, vinegar, honey and Worcestershire sauce.
Bring to a low boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes.
Blend until smooth, either with an immersion blender or by putting ingredients into a blender or food processor.
Place the pork in a large slow cooker. Pour the peach barbecue sauce over the top. Cover and cook on high for 4 to 6 hours or low for 8 to 10 hours, until the pork is cooked through and shreds easily with tongs or a fork.
Serve by itself or with hamburger buns or tortillas.
This would be a big hit after a long day of work. Make the sauce the night before and put this together in the morning before work. Serve with carrots and celery and your family will think you have found your inner genius!
