I just moved into my new home last week, and boy has it been a crazy time! Between the kids adjusting to a new school, packing and unpacking, and trying to adjust to the new house (built in 1878), where does that leave time for lengthy meals? It just doesn’t! Our new home isn’t close to fast food, which is a healthy thing, but it means I need to get my rear in the kitchen more. I’ve been a good girl and have been doing lots of home cooking, and what I love are easy 30 minute meals (or less). I like to cook with a variety of meats, and this Creamy Mushroom Pork Loin and Rice is a huge family hit.
Using Smithfield® Marinated Fresh Pork helps cut down on marinating time, because the pork comes already marinated and ready to be cooked. I love time saving tools and foods to help family mealtime come along more quickly. Fast meal prep means more time for play!
Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork makes mealtime easy and perfect for any night of the week. It is available in a variety of flavors and cuts. For Real Flavor, Real Fast, I like to pick up one of the following from Safeway:
- Applewood Smoked Bacon Pork Loin Filet
- Steakhouse Mushroom Pork Loin Filet
- Slow Roasted Golden Rotisserie Flavor Pork Tenderloin
- Roasted Garlic & Herb Pork Loin Filet
You really could use any flavor combination for this Creamy Mushroom Pork Loin and Rice, and you’ll have dinner ready in 30 minutes or less. This is so needed when we have limited time between school, work, and soccer practice. I’m sure many of you are in the same boat.
