The Consumption: Pork n Peaches!

This crock recipe was the easiest to make! I came home for my lunch break and prepared this meal in less than 10 minutes.  I added all of the ingredients, including 1 whole peach, turned the crock on LOW and headed back to work.

I was so pleased to arrive home to a sweet and tangy aroma in my kitchen.  I feel so spoiled when I come home from work and a home-cooked meal has already been prepared.  There was nothing left to do but unwind and eat!

The peaches added a sweet and savory flavor to the pork.  Since we used green chiles, crushed red pepp and Newman's Own Peach Salsa this dish was sweet, tangy and spicy.  I served with low sodium seasoned yellow rice because it's my fav.  No need for a knife with this recipe, the pork just fell apart.  I expected the pieces of peaches to turn to mush, however, they remained solid and soaked in the juices from all the ingredients.  I thought the fruit pieces were the best!  ENJOY!
