Peach August

Agrodolce (agro: sour; dolce: sweet), a traditional Italian sweet-and-sour sauce made with vinegar and sugar (or sweet ingredients such as fresh peaches and raisins), adds fresh summer flavor to the granddaddy of all pork chops. Thick-cut pork porterhouse includes a juicy portion of the tenderloin on one side and a large cut of the loin on the other.

Peach Agrodolce:

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons raisins
  • 2 tablespoons tawny port wine
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 large fresh, ripe peaches, peeled and diced into 1-inch pieces
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper

How to Make It

Cook raisins, port, and 2 Tbsp. water in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes. Remove from heat; whisk in parsley, vinegar, and oil. Stir in peaches and salt and pepper to taste.
