As a mom, and wife I’m pretty much ALWAYS on the hunt for healthy, delicious dinners that are quick and easy to make. Sound familiar? Yeah, I think this is right up there with solving the national debt crisis, and making the country more energy independent! Finding quick, healthy delicious meals is on the mind of anyone that spends more than a few minutes in the kitchen every day. Have no fear – I’ve got a great one for ya: Easy Grilled Pork Loin with Sugar and Spice Rub and Grilled Peaches!
This dinner is seriously so delicious! The juicy, sweet peaches paired with the slightly spicy rub on the pork compliment each other beautifully. We had this for dinner last night, and I’m tellin’ ya – a little bite of pork, with a little piece of peach is a slice of heaven right in your mouth!! Wow – so good!!
The rub is a combination of brown sugar, spices and a little oil, so it is actually a wet rub or paste. The preparation for the meat is really minimal – maybe 5 minutes to mix together the rub, and cover the pork with it. I really like this rub, as it adheres well to the pork. When grilled, the sugar caramelizes a bit to give it a great char, but still preserving the flavors of the spices.
Here’s how this super-easy, quick, delicious meal comes together:
Tip: When choosing peaches at the grocery store, or farmers market, select fruit that has a nice peachy fragrance at the stem. It also needs to be slightly firm, with just a little give. Anything that’s really yellow at the stem, rock hard or overly soft, put back – these peaches are either hard and unripened or overripe, mushy and possibly mealy.
As you can see, this delicious meal comes together easily. The prep is simple, the cooking is straightforward, and in the end, you’ll have a healthy, delicious meal that took less than 30 minutes from start to the time you’re eating. It really doesn’t get much better than that!
