This is a supper busy time of year we are entering. Sure, December gets all the credit but springtime and summer have so much activity going on, you need to have a Go-To when it comes to getting a tasty, easy dinner on the table to feed your busy family. I work a 40 hour job on top of running this food blog. My husband works 60 hours a week and also just started a photography business. We also have four dogs who think the our worlds revolve around them. You know how it is.. kids, work, laundry. I need a hearty delicious dinner that isn’t going to take forever to make and with the warmer weather, I just want to let my barbeque grill do all the heavy lifting. When it comes to serving up an easy weeknight meal, my choice is always going to be something simple but also food that is made with real, all-natural ingredients and tastes AMAZING. My standby used to always be chicken. Chicken.. chicken.. chicken. Now, I put the chicken in the freezer for a rainy day and reach for my Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork as my first choice. Plus, what is really amazing is that Smithfield Marinated is 100% Fresh Pork, made with real, all-natural ingredients and you can cook it any way that works for you! Grilled, roasted, sautéed, slow-cooked or barbequed… Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork comes out perfect every time.
There I was, wandering aimlessly around Walmart and looking for something exciting to make for dinner. You know the drill, trying to answer the WHAT’S FOR DINNER question. I was tired, I was in a hurry, I was frustrated with the idea of chicken… again! Then I spotted it!!! Right there in the Walmart meat section was a variety of Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork products.
Their pork products are are slow-marinated in delicious seasonings so there is no need to spend time marinating the pork when you get home, Smithfield® has done all the hard work for you. Now, I am a garlic addict so I grabbed up a few (yes… few) packages of Smithfield Roasted Garlic & Cracked Black Pepper Fresh Pork Tenderloin and a few veggies to make a quick pineapple salsa and some corn on the cob and I was on the way home with a grocery bag full of happiness.
Did I mention that Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork Filets are on rollback through the month of April? Yup… go! Go Now!!
So I get home and asked my husband to do what he loves best .. fire up that grill!!!
Talk about a perfect meal, my hubby grabbed up that Smithfield Roasted Garlic & Cracked Black Pepper Fresh Pork Tenderloin and threw that on the grill, I made a quick pineapple salsa and in just 30 minutes, we had a delicious dinner of Grilled Pork Tacos with Pineapple Salsa on the table and there were just enough leftovers to take to lunch the next day.
I added the grilled pork and salsa to a bowl of rice and a squeeze of lime and my tummy was HAPPY!! You have to love a product that is just as good the next day as it was first day you made it.
So instead of serving up some blah dinner that your family won’t even remember the next day, treat your family to a delicious, easy and super fast dinner they will be asking for time and time again. Go grab up some of those Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork products and let your culinary imagination go wild!
ENJOY! ~ HEATHER
