Peach Salsa Pork Roast

Peach Salsa Pork Roast

When I think of fruit with pork I usually think of apples. Especially because of that famous episode from The Brady Bunch show where Peter finds out Mrs. Brady is serving 'Pork chops and applesauce'  for dinner. Oh how I loved that show!

 Well peaches also go very well with pork! I think I prefer peaches rather than apples with pork! Sorry Mrs. Brady! I love the tangy, sweet and savory combination of this recipe! The sweet potatoes are equally delicious with the peach salsa in this recipe. This is fruity, garlicky, pork roast at its best! I also love how simple this is to prepare!

I found this recipe on a food blog called Foodie with Family. There it was posted as a slow cooker recipe. But since the recipe called for browning the pork on the stove top, I decided to finish cooking the pork in the same pan, in the oven. I just baked the nicely browned pork roast, covered at 350 degrees, for 25 minutes per pound. A perfect one pan meal. I served this with a salad, but you can serve it with rice also.

2 1/2 lb. boneless pork roast
kosher salt and black pepper
2 tbls. olive oil or corn oil
4 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
2 jarred cups peach salsa - I used mild
3 large cloves garlic, minced

Heat oil in a very large oven safe pan on medium high heat.
Lightly season the pork roast with salt and pepper.
Sear all sides of the seasoned pork roast very well.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Place the sweet potato chunks all around the seared pork roast.
Pour the peach salsa on top of the pork.
Sprinkle the minced garlic on top of the salsa
Cover and bake for 25 minutes per pound.
Check the roast after 30 minutes.
If the salsa is looking too dry add a little water.
To serve, slice into 1 inch thick slices and serve with the sweet potatoes.
Leftovers reheat nicely in the microwave.
Serves 4

  1. I made this a few weeks ago and completely forgot to tell you how super delish this was. I used pineapple salsa and sweet potatoes. Super combo. I will be making it again, and next time I'll give the peach salsa a try. Yummers Lillian

    1. I'm so glad you tried it and liked it Linda! It's good to know that it also works well with pineapple salsa! Thank you so much for commenting! That is always very appreciated! =D

  2. I am at it again. Bought some Paul Newman's Peach Salsa, a small sirloin roast and am making pulled pork sammies. Doing it stovetop again, but so far, so aromatic. Happy 4th Lillian!

    1. Oh good, you're trying the peach salsa this time! Let me know how you liked it! Happy 4th to you too Linda! Thanks! =D
