I always prepare my Smithfield Marinated Pork the day before my event. I season it with special seasonings, and bake on low heat for several hours. After it's done I let it cool, and refridgerate until the next day. Then the day of my event, I run it through a shredder add my favorite bbq sauce and it's the best shredded pork ever :)

I like to take my already marinated pork and put it in a Pyrex. I put green beans on one side and potatoes on the other top veggies with a few pats of butter,sprinkle onion powder, garlic powder, then put Kraft ranch seasoning on potatoes, and some cavenders on my green beans. I’ll cover the Pyrex in foil and put in fridge. The next day all I have to do is throw it in the oven on 350 for about an hour. Voila dinner.

I take a partially frozen pork loin and I slice it thinly. I then cut each slice in three pieces. I put the cut pork in a sealed plastic bag with equal parts honey and low salt soy sauce. Shake the bag and let it sit in the refrigerator. Saute a container of pre-chopped fresh vegetables for three minutes. Add the cut up pork and saute an additional three minutes. Serve over rice (I use the microwave rice.) What a delicious fast meal! A family favorite.

My go to with pulled pork is bbq pulled pork sandwiches. I simply mix bbq sauce with the fully cooked pulled pork, cook it together for about 15 minutes and then chop fresh onions. I heat up my burger buns, put a healthy portion of pulled pork, add onions, and pickles and then boom! Dinner is served. Love pulled pork.

I sear sliced Smithfield Marinated pork in a frying pan on both sides, season with garlic, salt, pepper and chopped onion. Once both sides are seared to keep in the moisture, I put a lid on the pan, lower the heat to medium and finish cooking. Serve over rice for a home bento style meal.

My favorite way to cook the marinated pork tenderloin is in the slow cooker. Add chopped peppers, onion, pineapple, chicken stock and fajita seasoning packet before closing the lid. When dinner time comes around make some boil in a bag brown rice. Shred the pork and serve with rice and favorite toppings for an awesome fajita bowl or with tortillas. I love this with black beans(drained & rinsed) avocado and salsa.

In 30 minutes you have the best tasting pork roast that your family and friends will think that you have been working in the kitchen all day on. I think the easiest and most flavorful method to prepare is using a pressure cooker...you will not be disappointed.

I am a busy working mom and LOVE my crockpot! I use a crockpot liner for easy cleanup. I have found that if I smother the pork tenderloin in grain mustard and put about a cup of apple juice in and set it on low for 8 hours, it comes out so flavorful and juicy, with so little cleanup! The kids love it and always ask for seconds.

My favorite cooking tool is my cast iron skillet, and I am the expert in getting a meal on the table in under half an hour. Just ask my husband! He’s Cuban and loves marinated Smithfield “chuletas!” I quickly brown the pork chops in olive oil, and add bell pepper and onion with some Spanish style tomato sauce and a splash of white wine. This makes a sauce to go over some white rice with black beans, which takes 12 minutes. I use canned beans if I am in a hurry. Add a green salad and dinner is done!

Plan the meal to include two leftover meals which do NOT resemble first meal. Flavorings entirely different. First meal. Alone with salad, potatoes, and vegetables. And a lovely sauce Second meal. A stir fry using the pork as a base. Third meal A noodle base or salad base pork themed meal (depending on time of year)

To successfully get "back in the routine" of back to school planning ahead is key! Grill two Smithfield Slow Smoked Mesquite Flavored Pork Loin Filets. Serve one as a quick and easy dinner with a fresh green salad on the first night. The next night, thinly slice the cooled leftovers and create a grilled cheese sandwich with apples and gouda cheese.

Serve over blue corn chips with blue cheese and bacon crumbles and whatever other nacho toppings. ie: tomato, guacamole, salsa, green onion, etc.

I "dry poach" or "oven poach" the Smithfield marinated pork loin. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Get a long, rectangular baking dish. Cover the bottom of the dish with a layer of butter. Place the pork loin roast in the dish. Set aside for a few. Grab some parchment paper (you will need a piece that is slightly larger than your dish..l possibly more if you cut the loin into loin chops. Take your butter and completely cover one side of the parchment paper. Once this is completed you then take the parchment paper and "tuck" it completely around the meat. You don't want your meat touching the walls of your dish, and if your meat has been cut into pieces make sure that each piece has enough room to be tucked into it's own pouch without touching the other mean/pouches. You may want to secure the outside rim of the parchment paper to the dish using some foil. Cook it for 45 minutes to 1 hour depending on how thick the pork loin is. This method is a mix between poaching and braising the meat. Once completed it will create meat that is moist and falling apart when touched with a fork, similar to the way it will if it's been slow cooked in the crock pot. I do this when I need to prep food for a few days, once this is cooked I can make a variety of other meals in a matter of minutes, truly making busy nights a breeze with my family.

My fiance and I always prep our meals on Sunday morning as soon as we wake up. This helps us stay on track for the rest of the week (Mon-Saturday), plus it is SO quick and easy to prepare.

Left over Smithfield tenderloin or pork can be chopped up and frozen to be used later. Or if you want to utilize the leftover now or later. 2 tablespoons of oil in a large frying pan. Heat oil and then add garlic and saute. Add fresh broccoli, peppers, mushrooms and sweet onions (all cleaned and chopped) and simmer until nearly done and then add left over pork! (Do not overcook) Cook for approximately 6-9 minutes (total time) and serve over rice. Presto!! You have a meal! So good and actually is an entirely different meal.

I stuff a Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork Loin with a mixture of thinly sliced red onions, minced garlic, salt & pepper, oregano & thyme, 12 oz of thawed frozen spinach, 8oz of crumbled feta, juice of half a lemon, a few dashes of Worcestershire sauce, and a few dashes of paprika. I tie it up securely with butcher twine and cook it in the oven or on the grill. If you cook it on the grill be sure place it over some foil to catch any of the stuffing that leaks out.

In my home, we call the hour prior to dinner the "witching hour". Nobody, including myself are at our peak performance or attitude. We have survived most of the day, but our blood sugar is low and we are exhausted. This is when I am grateful for meal hacks that help me get dinner on the table in 30 minutes or less. My go-to is Vietnamese Bahn Mi sandwiches using Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork. I thinly slice up a Sweet Teriyaki Marinated Fresh Pork Tenderloin and quickly sauté over stovetop. Slice a baguette lengthwise and spread on a homemade spread made with your favorite Asian hot sauce mixed with mayonnaise or butter. Add the thin slices of pork to the baguette. Top with julienned cucumber, carrot, jalapeño (optional), and cilantro. Serve and enjoy, and don't forget to pat yourself on the back!

While the Smithfield® Marinated Fresh Pork roasts to perfection in less than 30 minutes in the oven, throw washed and poked jacket potatoes in the microwave at 2 min per side, adding 2 minutes for every potato past the first one. Flip them on occasion and leave them in the microwave when their time is done. Use the rest of the time to cut veggies for a green salad. When the meat is done you have a full, nutritious meal!

I cut marinated pork leftovers into thin strips. I always have broth on hand for EVERYTHING, so I season my pork broth to taste. Put pork slices into broth until hot. When it's done, I put the pork slices onto a good Italian sub roll along with lettuce, tomatoes and whatever else you want on your sub. I put a small bowl, about 1/2 cup in size, beside each plate of food for dipping your sub before each bite. The marinated pork is so much tastier for subs and sandwiches than plain unseasoned pork. Quick, easy and a favorite of my family!

The best pork chop dinner is also one of the easiest. First you'll need your chops and a 12 ounce can of cola. You can choose your own brand but I prefer to use Coca-cola because it has just the right amount of tang. Next you'll need a short can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. You will need to take 3-4 chipotles out of the can and then take half the adobo sauce and add it to a blender. Next take half a 12 oz can (6 oz) of cola and add it to the chipotles. Blend together until well mixed and frothy. Next heat cooking oil in a large frying pan (large enough to cook 4-5 chops) and add in your pork chops. Season the chops with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder. Brown the chops on both sides cooking on medium-high heat. After you have browned both sides of the pork chops dump the chipotle-cola mixture from your blender into the still cooking pan, topping the pork chops while still surrounding them in the sauce. Allow the pan to come down to a simmer for about ten minutes and then serve with refried beans, Spanish rice and warm corn tortillas. This is an excellent sweet and spicy pork dish that I have loved making with Smithfield pork for years! Goes great with a nice Sangria!

One of my favorite no fuss, quick prep, to the table in 30 mins or less dinners (and my family of 5 picky eaters too) is Smithfield® Marinated Fresh Pork in gravy. 1st I cut the loin into 1 1/2 inch slices and place them in a deep cast iron skillet. Next, cover them with brown gravy (dry pkg and water is fine) Then cover and cook over medium heat on the stovetop for 25-30 minutes until tender. I choose The sides according to whatever is fresh and in season and whatever is in my pantry. It doesn't matter, because the pork is the star of this show everytime.

The kids are back in school; time to get date night back in my weekly routine! Even on my busiest days at the office, I'm able to prepare a delicious meal in less than 30 minutes thanks to Smithfield. My current favorite, you ask? Smithfield original recipe marinated pork loin with a side of sweet potato that will make you feel like you're in a 5 star restaurant! In the morning, I toss a few sweet potatoes in the slow cooker for 7 hours. When I get home, the potatoes are done! I bake my pork loin for 20 minutes and, while it's in the oven, scoop the inside of the potatoes out. A quick mix with goat cheese and a drizzle of honey, topped with some crushed walnuts, and the potatoes are ready to go! I slice the pork loin and serve it on top of the potatoes. This dish definitely adds the love back into date night--all in under 30 minutes!

For weekday meals, use the same method of cooking for your pork loin and your sides. My choice is usually oven baked so the meal is not hands on for the entire time. I can place the pork loin in a roasting pan and cook at 425 and I usually pick sides like asparagus and/or sweet potatoes that also roast well in a separate pan. The pork usually requires around 30 minutes of cooking and 10 minutes of rest. When you turn your loin half way through cooking; pop your asparagus (with lemon juice squeezed on top and garlic powder sprinkled on top) and/or sweet potato slices (peeled, sliced and brushed with honey and sprinkled with cinnamon) in the oven on a non-stick foil lined baking sheet and all dishes will be ready at the same time.

How I get my dinner on the table in 30 minutes or less is I use my All in One XL Cooker. It's a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker and even a yogurt maker all in one. I love making pulled pork in this thing. It's easy too. Just toss a seasoned Smithfield Pork Roast into the Cooker XL (10 quart is my favorite one though I also have the 8 quart by another manufacturer), and touch meats. It will automatically heat up and you can adjust the time by weight! For a 5 pound pulled pork roast it takes 20 minutes and then I let it cook for about 10 before shredding it into pulled pork for pulled pork sandwiches! I use my claws to pull and shred the roast and then add some bbq sauce and get some burger buns out,along w/ some store bought coleslaw! The perfect end to a day!

My family peeps love when I cook Pork-n-Egg for dinner. This is how I cook it: Heat 2 Tbs oil in a heavy skillet on medium. Slice pork first (1 inch thick, about 1 lb), then cube it. Place in center of skillet, sprinkle with salt, garlic powder (½ tsp) and freshly ground black pepper. Cook for about 8 minutes total, turning meat every minute or so. Half way through cooking pork, move pieces to the sides of skillet. Cube 1 large tomato and ½ large onion and sauté them in oil for 3-4 minutes, sprinkle with salt and your favorite herbs. Break 2 eggs in a separate bowl, add ¼ cup milk, salt and pepper. Mix well. Pour over veggie and pork mixture, cover with lid and cook for a minute before turning heat off. Serve with country biscuits or crusty bread and butter. This meal is hearty and delicious!

I buy marinated Pork from my local Mexican Mercado..They have chicken beef and other meats but I buy the Pork because it's cut at an angle and so tender and cooks quickly. First I turn the oven on 400 for the tortillas, then put my yellow rice into boiling chicken broth and water and a little salt and olive oil then I put a little extra light olive oil and canola oil in a hot cast iron skillet and since my yellow rice is perfect and done, I pan fry the pork strips and take the tortillas out of the oven. I give the pork one last flip and take the pan from the heat, the end result is a bed of rice, pork strips lying gently on top, the crema and tortillas are along side and that dinner!

Butter top and bottom of french bread, on the inside of the french bread mix mayonaisse, minced garlic and chopped up basil spread on french bread, put sliced pork, sliced red onions, yellow banana peppers and finally provolone cheese on top. Put top of french bread on. Put in panini maker and grill until lightly browned which is usually about 5 minutes. This makes 3 Porker Panini Sandwiches.

Personally, I find that time is a big factor for my family! Being able to cook fast but still have flavor is important in our family. We love Smithfield because many of the recipes are perfect to fit our busy schedule AND taste great. Many of the cook methods from the recipes are simple and easy and our kids can do it too. More specifically, we like Smithfield sausage patties. Pre cooked and so simple to cook up. That cook method is using a little water in the skillet and steaming them cooked. I'm not sure how you keep that flavor in, but we love them.

In no time we have a delicious meal!!

I love your marinated fresh pork. That said, I like to roast the pork halfway, then around the roast with sourkraut, seasoned with a touch of brown sugar and finish baking. I serve with mashed potatoes, and apple or cranberry sauce. A big family favorite and also great for guests.

I like to keep a few marinated pork tenderloins in my fridge at all times since they are easy to prepare and will get you back into the routine of cooking after a crazy summer. It is especially nice not to have to create your own marinades. One of my favorite meals is to take a Smithfield Roasted Garlic and Herb Marinated Tenderloin and sear it in an oven-proof saute pan. Heat a couple tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat and cook the tenderloin until it is golden brown. Then place the pan in the oven at 400 degrees for about 10 – 15 minutes . I use a meat thermometer to heat the meat to 140. Then I place the tenderloin on a plate and cover it with aluminum foil for 10 minutes or so. While the meat is cooking and sitting, you can zap a few baked poatoes, whip up a salad, and heat up some veggies. When ready, just slice the tendeloin into slices.There’s bound to be some juices on the plate to baste the meat. Enjoy!

Getting back in the routine means that the super ready Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork and my crock pot become best friends! First thing in morning before heading out the door, I simple place the pork loin in the crockpot on low setting, add a few drizzles of olive oil, put the lid on and then I am off for the day! When I get home, my house smells amazing, I start a quick pot of rice, dressing or pasta on the stove top, throw a bag of frozen or fresh vegetables in my stainless steel steamer in saucepan on stove; slice up the pork and save the juices to mix with the rice and ta dah, dinner is ready in less than thirty minutes! And I have plenty of leftovers to take for lunch the next day!

Smithfield pork leftovers (if there are any) is great for making pork fried rice. Make rice ahead of time and let it cool. Fry the rice with soy sauce, ginger and garlic. Add cubed pork and mixed vegetables. At the end crack a couple of eggs and scramble into the mixture. No need to get take out when homemade is so easy.

Cube leftover pork and freeze in half cup servings. Great for adding just a touch of protein to a salad. Nice change of pace for an omelet filling. Or toss in a pan with some cabbage, onions, garlic, sesame oil, soy sauce, ginger, and any other spices that strike your fancy (think in terms of an egg roll).

I take the leftover pork roast, shred it, toss it in BBQ sauce then mix in shredded cheddar cheese. I use refrigerated croissant dough, placing one triangle on a baking sheet, spooning the mixture on it, then placing a second croissant triangle on top and sealing the edges. Then I bake them in the oven at 350 for about 10 minutes, until golden brown. This makes for delicious, flaky BBQ pork pies.

My favorite way to enjoy Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork is making shredded bbq out of it. I usually just toss one in my slow cooker that morning with some delicious homemade bbq sauce and about a cup of water. Cook it on low for the day so that it just falls apart. With it already marinated I don't need to add any other seasoning. Melts in your mouth when it's done. Always good on those super busy days.

Because the Smithfield® Marinated Fresh Pork cut is already marinated it doesn't need to be over cooked to be tender. I brown each side on a hot grill for about 5 minutes per side and then wrap it in foil to finish cooking it on the grill. The foil will keep the juices in and allow it cook faster so it is done in 30 minutes.

Get ready, because I'm giving you two meals in one: first, make your Smithfield pork fall-apart-tender by popping it in the slow cooker and going about your day. When dinnertime rolls around, mix half of the pork with BBQ sauce, then sandwich it between slider buns and coleslaw for pulled pork sliders. You'll still have time left, so whip up some scrambled eggs. Using the leftover pork and slider buns, layer cheese, pork, and eggs to create 'breakfast sliders.' Wrap them with plastic wrap and foil, then pop in the fridge or freezer. Ta-da - dinner AND breakfast ready in 30 minutes!

My family loves a good home cooked meal and I love serving them a meal that I know is delicious, healthy and made with fresh high-quality ingredients. Having a flavorful meal ready within a 30 minute time frame gives me the opportunity to spend more fun time with my family. That is why I always choose Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork at least 3 times per week for dinner. One of our favorite quick dinner recipes is pork chops with broccoli served over rice. I start with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 2 cloves of fresh garlic (sliced) heated in a jumbo cooker. Place Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork Chops in pan, add 1 - 16 oz. bag of frozen broccoli florets, season with salt & pepper, cover pan and grill for 10 minutes on medium heat. Turn chops over once while stirring broccoli and cook until golden brown (about 5-10 minutes). The combination of the garlic mixed with the ingredients of the marinated pork chops adds such a savory flavor to the broccoli. While the chops and broccoli are cooking, I will cook some quick rice in another pot. From prep to table is under 30 minutes and my family has a delicious meal to enjoy and I get to enjoy their smiles!

I fry up Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork in vegetable oil about 5min per side then take the pork out put it in a 9x13in pan set aside turn oven on to 350 degrees, put flour in the pan I had the pork frying in,stove still on, stir in enough flour to soak up the grease that was left in the pan, pour in milk enough to cover the flour mixture, stir till the milk soaks up the flour, should be thick, then add more milk little by little till it makes a desired liquid gravy. Then pour over the pork, put it in the oven for about 30min, when done you have delicious tender pork with gravy. Make sure your gravy is a thin liquid when you put it in the oven because it will thicken in the oven.

When I know that our family is going to have one of those weeks, you know, the ones where there's so much to do and not enough time, I make sure to roast a Smithfield Marinated Pork Tenderloin on the weekend. I thinly slice the cooked roast into strips and store them in my refrigerator. Then instead of going through the drive thru or calling for take out, I can simply grab some of my Smithfield Stash and add it to a quick dinner like quesadillas, burritos, dinner omelettes, or my favorite, as a topping to my favorite salad. Even during a crazy day or week, it's great to know that I can put a delicious, quick, and wholesome meal on the table for my family.

You'd be surprised how many people do not do these two simple things to make their pork taste delicious. First: TASTE ALONG THE WAY! If something is going wrong with your seasoning you can fix it before it becomes disastrous. Second: When you aren't using an actual recipe that you already know and trust to result in the amount of flavor you want, take whatever spices you intend to use and increase them by about 1/4. If you think a teaspoon should do the trick? Kick it up just a bit more and add a little extra instead. Unless you're using something exceptionally strong and powerful (like truffle oil or other seriously strong ingredients), usually it's going to take more than you think it will to really get that flavor to pop. I can't remember how many times I've added what I thought was going to be plenty of seasoning to a dish and then had it turn out fairly bland. Just try turning up the dial a bit, don't be scared! Taste it and if it tastes "OK", add a bit more. After cooking awhile it's going to most likely lose a little of it's punch, so make it fairly strong to begin with and it should work well! :)

Make use of your oven and a few simple steps for a fast prep to plate week night meal. Pan fry to brown the outside of the pork then transfer to a lined baking sheet with your favorite seasoned fresh vegetables. Roast on average 18 to 20 minutes at 425 degrees. Don't skip the flavors left in the pan! Deglaze the pan with some cream (about 1/4 cup), allow to reduce down for a quick sauce. The marinaded pork will flavor your sauce perfectly. Allow your oven to do the work. Your family will be impressed for less!

Smithfield Pork is a go to 30 minute meal at my house! It's already seasoned, so I simply place it on a baking sheet and add what ever veggies are in my fridge or garden around the pork.

Im all about quick and easy, and Smithfields Pork Loin falls right in that category! If you have 40 minutes, you will have an awesome dinner! Set oven at 485, and your cook top on high. Place large cast iron fry pan or large dutch oven pan onto stove top to heat up. While pan is preheating, I cut a plain pork loin into several 2 to 2& 1/2 inch thick chops. Rub each chop with oil, and season with a good amount of salt (**pork can take a lot of salt for flavor, dont be afraid to add salt to it), pepper, onion and garlic powder on both sides. When pan is preheated, add enough oil to cover the bottom and add the chops. Fry each side, uncovered, for 5-7 minutes until REALLY brown on both sides. Remove the pan, chops and all, and just slide the whole thing right into the hot oven. Cook/bake, uncovered, for another 10 minutes. I know it doesnt sound long enough, but it is. Remove from pan from oven and, add about 1/4 cup water or broth quickly and cover the pan with the lid tightly. Let rest for at least 10 minutes.NO PEEKING! While they are resting and creating a wonderful juice to put over your chops when served, you can prepare your side dishes. I usually make some sort of rice and serve by placing the chops on top of a pile of the rice, spoon some of the juice over all. And then add something green to the plate i.e. broccoli, asparagus, green beans etc., and call it dinner. I promise these will rival any steak and be the best pork chops you will EVER eat!

A quick and easy way to use leftover cooked Smithfield marinated fresh pork is to make fried pork patties. I chop the leftover pork in the food processor, add an egg and sufficient flour to hold mixture together to mold patties. Sprinkle patties with seasoned (or plain if you prefer) Panko bread crumbs and lightly press into the mixture. Fry patties 2-3 minutes or until lightly brown. Add side dishes for a quick and easy meal. If you have leftover pork mixture that you did not need to cook, save it and make patties the following night for sandwiches. The hot patties on buns with lettuce and tomato make great sandwiches plus you have another quick meal.

I am a no fuss, wrap everything in foil, kind of girl. I like to peel and blanch a few potatoes and baby carrots. You can use whatever fresh veggies your family prefers. I lay out pieces of foil large enough to wrap a single serving in (I do 5 individual foil packs) and add the marinated pork and veggies! A little salt and pepper and a drizzle of olive oil, finishes it off. I wrap them tightly, place on a baking sheet and throw them in a 375 degree oven for 25 minutes. And there you have it, a delicious meal in thirty minutes or less!

I drop a Smithfield Marinated Pork into the slow cooker and add vegetables like carrots and turnips and whatever we have on hand, along with some honey BBQ sauce. When we get back home dinner is ready. All I have to do is add some applesauce and crusty whole wheat bread and butter to the table and we are eating quick, and eating good!

I use our crockpot to prepare our meal. It really does the work all by itself. I place the Smithfield Marinated pork in the crockpot to become tender and well done with some meat tenderizer. I add potatoes, carrots, celery and onion with just enough water in the bottom to lightly simmer. Then, when we are all home at dinner time. We eat quick; and no muss or fuss, easy cook and easy clean up. It gives us more family time. I like that. Warm tummies and warm family gathering. Thanks Smithfield! :)

One of my families favorites is to use a Teryaki pork loin. Dice half the tenderloin saving the other half for a later meal. Using olive oil stir fry the pork. Put aside. Make white rice while you're stir frying the pork. Stir fry Frozen Chinese veggies according to package directions. Mix pork together with the veggies and place over rice. Since the pork already has that great teryaki flavor it gives the meal a special zing of flavor.

This is a easy prep, but it is with a Smithfield Pork Roast which takes longer than 30 minutes to cook. I take the Smithfield pork roast and put it in a crock pot with about 2 cups of water and a packet of Au Jus Gravy Mix. I also sprinkle some dry Au Jus on top of the Smithfield Prime Pork Sirloin Roast Bone In. That's it. It will be the most tender roast you have ever eaten! I then take the juices and add another packet of Pork gravy to put on potatoes and you have a wonderful meal. Delicious!

Use your left precooked pork to create a nice lunch wrap! Saute the pork with some thinly sliced tri-color peppers and add a dash of taco seasoning. When heated through-about 10 minutes, place on a tortilla with lettuce, shredded cheese, sour cream, salsa, and avocado. Now you have a nice pork wrap for lunch!

I absolutely love bbq pork pizza so I roast Smithfields marinated pork and then I sautee red onions and orange peppers with fresh garlic in a little bacon fat until caramelized. Low and slow as not to burn the garlic. Then I assemble my pizza. I buy premade pizza dough and just roll it out and then my sauce is a sweet bbq sauce I doctor up myself and then I add the pork and the camelized onion. I sprinkle with a small amount of shreaded cheddar cheese and add all my seasonings and into the over it goes.

I love to use my crock pot when fixing Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork! Put the pork into the crock pot with about 2 cups of water. Turn on low for about 6-7 hours! You can add potatoes and carrots, or mix it up with broccoli florets! The nice thing about the crock pot is that it will be done and waiting for you when you get home from work!

I like the teriyaki marinated pork loin. After slicing into medallions, I put them into a Ziploc bag and add more teriyaki sauce then shake up the bag to coat all the sides of each medallion. Let marinate in the fridge for an hour or overnight. When ready to cook, place the medallions in a glass baking pan, touching each other. Add 1/4 cup of water to prevent from drying out. You can cover with foil then uncover the last 10 minutes. Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes. Or until done. Serve with sticky rice and Asian cucumber salad. Hoison Sriachi sauce on side.

I like to make Cuban (or other panini) sandwiches with leftover sliced pork. Use cheese as your "glue" on the bread side. Gently preheat your ingredients in the microwave so they are no longer ice cold. Then butter the outside of the bread and PRESTO! Grilled or panini-ed sandwiches. For the filling, use your favorite condiments such as mustard, mayo, pickles, relish, horseradish, etc. Tomatoes which have been blotted and onions are good as well as ham or other lunch meat.
