  1. I can tell you that this turned into a fantastic tasting dish. The pork came out filled with flavor due to seasoning and letting it sit in the fridge. The peach bbq sauce is gourmet at its finest and absolutely loved incorporation of the peaches. My peaches were only o.k and not that sweet, so I added a wee bit of sugar to the sauce. Hubs was a very happy man and kept on telling me how delicious and tender the pork turned out.
  2. This recipe has a delicious sauce that would also be good over chicken. Can't access arbol chilies so I used an ordinary green bell pepper. All good. Good flavour and easy recipe, despite the many ingredients and steps.
