When you have four kids, getting dinner on the table quickly is a necessity. I usually have no more than 30 minutes to prep and get a meal in the oven so I always go for easy recipes. Although I prefer easy meal solutions, I definitely don’t like to compromise for flavor or quality ingredients.
One of my favorite go-to recipes is a one pan meal that is a bonus all in itself. One pan means less dishes to wash too! An easy recipe, with little prep, and only one pan to wash when I’m finished! Awesome!
The applewood smoked bacon pork loin is pre-marinated so all I have to do is grab in from the fridge and add it to the pan with the rest of my ingredients, making it perfect for any night.
I love to mix the flavors of sweet potatoes and apples with a tangy maple balsamic glaze that compliments the Smithfield® Marinated Applewood Smoked Bacon Pork Loin Filet perfectly – you get Real Flavor Real Fast!
My local Food Lion carries all of the ingredients I need for this recipe, including each of the Smithfield Marinated Pork varieties – shopping convenience is always a plus! Smithfield Marinated Pork is slow-marinated and perfectly seasoned in the bag and is available in Loin Filets, Tenderloins, and Roasts across a variety of flavors that can be grilled, roasted, or sauteed.
With my fresh ingredients in hand, I can prep this meal in about 20 minutes and have it in the oven just in time to roast before the kids get home from school.
