I can hardly believe that it is almost time for school to begin! I am not quite sure where the summer has gone, but alas, it is once again time to get back into a routine of prepping, planning and preparing easy weeknight dinners.
Since both of my boys will be in school full-time this year and they are involved in many extracurricular activities, it is especially important to me that I have easy and delicious meals on the table that require little effort but that provide real flavor, real fast. Easy and delicious meals will ensure that we have just a few more minutes in our day to enjoy as a family all while going about the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
One of my favorite items to prepare for quick and delicious dinners are Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork products purchased right in the fresh meat section at my local Safeway store. Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork allows me to get dinner on the table in 30 minutes or less any night of the week. These products are also super versatile as they can be grilled, roasted, sautéed or slow cooked. In addition, they are already marinated which means that they are packed full of scrumptious flavor.
My Safeway store had a wide variety of Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork products, so it was hard for me to decide on just one! When I saw the Smithfield Roasted Garlic and Herb Pork Loin Filet, I knew right away that it was the one! This product is dry rubbed and marinated with garlic, onion powder, spices and natural smoke. Smithfield delivers real flavor, real fast right to my table any night of the week.
Sliders and sandwiches are always a fun and easy dinner and one that my boys will devour any day of the week. With the Smithfield Roasted Garlic and Herb Pork Loin Filet, I was able to create a delicious Cuban pork slider that reminded us of our vacation last summer in South Florida.
The Cuban Pork Slider created with Smithfield Roasted Garlic and Herb Pork Loin Filet was definitely a winner at my house! I first cooked the Smithfield pork in the slow cooker, which made it so tender and delicious! Using the slow cooker with the already marinated Smithfield pork saves you even more time in the kitchen, and you have a delicious meal on the table in just minutes!
Smithfield Roasted Garlic and Herb Pork Loin Filet Cuban Pork Sliders
Smithfield Roasted Garlic and Herb Pork Loin Filet
12 slider buns
12 small pieces of deli ham
12 small pieces of Swiss cheese
Place the Smithfield Pork Loin Filet in a slow cooker for 4-6 hours on low. You will want to ensure that the meat is cooked through to 145 degrees Fahrenheit. Slow cooking the Smithfield Roasted Garlic and Herb Pork Loin Filet allows the flavors to really distribute throughout the meat and it becomes so tender and juicy!
Remove the pork from the slow cooker and let it rest on a cutting board while you set out the other items for the sliders. Slice the pork into medium sized medallions to place on the sliders.
Place a couple of pork medallions onto a slider bun and assemble the rest of the slider with ham, Swiss cheese, pickles and mustard. Voila! You have the perfect Cuban Pork Sliders! This quick and easy dish is sure to be one of your new family favorites and one that you will reach for again and again!
When you use Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork products, there is no need for marinades or rubs, as the meat is already pre-seasoned. This ensures that you receive real flavor, real fast and that you have a meal on the table the entire family will love!
