Reviews for Peachy Pork with Rice
"We enjoyed this very much. I used an excellent Mexican-style salsa and apricot fruit spread in place of the peach jam. But since there are only two of us we ended up with leftovers, which I prefer to avoid. Next time I will use either skinless boneless chicken thighs or will sacrifice tenderness for portion control and go with a boneless pork chop."
"Super easy to cook after work but not overly flavorful"
"A really good easy recipe for a quick fix. I didn't have any taco seasoning so I left it out and increased the peach preserves to about 1/4 cup. It was yummy! It was really good with the accompanying recipe, seasoned green beans.(Simple and Delicious, August/September 2015, page 26)"
"Flavorful and easy."
"This dish was very easy to make and had good flavor. The sauce wasn't exactly what we expected. I was hoping for a sweeter sauce (more peach flavor) while my husband wanted a spicier sauce. I think next time I will make a sweeter sauce for me and use a spicier salsa for him. Otherwise it was great! We also served with cooked quinoa instead of rice."
"Simplicity itself...this is a delicious dish. I cut it in half to serve 3 people, using 8 oz. of pork and it was enough. Loved it."
"This was delicious, fast, and easy. Prefect satisfying meal on a busy weeknight."
"This one was a good one too. I made it per recipe as always the first time I try a new one. Next time will add a few ingredients to it."
"Great quick recipe. The salsa makes it look like you chopped vegetables! I added an onion and cooked it with the pork and used apricot preserves. I used a homemade taco seasoning that is fine with beef but it must "absorb" differently with the pork tenderloin because it was much spicier for comparable proportions."
