This was really good and definitely unique. The best way I can think to describe the taste to someone who's never tried it is as a Mexican take on barbecue sauce. And the wonderful thing about it is the level of spiciness is almost completely dependent on what salsa you use. Oh yeah, and I think the sauce goes REALLY well over rice, so much so that I almost thought the rice was better with the sauce that the pork itself was! Overall, I am very satisfied to have used the very last of my homemade peach preserves in this recipe. Thank you!
This is very similar to a recipe that I have had a few times - found in an advert from the National Pork Board. It uses 2 T. taco seasoning, 1 c. salsa and 4 T. peach preserves. After adding all ingredients to skillet, bring to boil then lower heat and simmer 8-10 minutes. I really really like this recipe and am going to make it again very soon!!
This is one my favorite recipes that I've tried from this site. I either double the meat or cut the taco seasoning in half for 1 pound of meat. It's quick an inexpensive to make, right up my alley!
