There is a common request at family dinners. The same request is heard when gathering with friends. What is it? It’s a simple request for a beverage: “I’ll have a glass of Moscato”. My family is a shining example. I’ve tried to introduce them to other wines. Almost each time I get “It’s okay, but I like Moscato better”. So I make sure I have it on hand for them. I went a step further and decided to incorporate it into a recipe. It only took one attempt to create Pork Roast with Peach Moscato Sauce.
Simplicity was the goal of the recipe. Well, and something that tastes good too. I wanted to make a savory dish with a lighter feel. A fruit aspect seemed a natural fit. Gallo Family Vineyards Red Moscato has citrus and peach flavors so I went with peach. The savory component became pork because it pairs so well with peaches.
How is the Pork Roast with Peach Moscato Sauce? Tender slices of pork are complimented with a sauce that is thick, light, fruity, and savory all at the same time. The sauce came out tastier than I ever conceived. Both my husband and I ended our meal with dipping slices of bread in the gravy to sop up all the goodness. Thankfully the recipe makes a lot of sauce. Sip on a glass of red Moscato during the meal to further enhance the fruitiness of the dish.
