Grilled Pork Fried Rice

I was selected and compensated for this opportunity to work with Smithfield through Sverve, but as always the content and opinions expressed here are all my own.
 
As a Mom of three kids, I know what busy is. Running here and there, homework, activities, chores, errands... the list goes on and on. Sometimes we all need a delicious meal that will be quick to the table and still be wholesome. This meal fits the bill perfectly. I used some cold left over rice, veggies, seasonings and a Smithfield Portobello Mushroom pork loin fillet and had dinner ready before you know it!


I really enjoyed using Smithfield Marinated pork in this dish because it took some of the work out of dinner time... I didn't have to worry about planning ahead to marinate the pork and it was was so easy to grill and go! Having a a home cooked meal in as little as 30 minutes is so helpful on those busy weeknights.

Right now Food Lion has a great sale on Smithfield Marinated Pork products to make this meal an even sweeter deal. Smithfield Marinated pork comes in a variety of flavors:
  • Portobello Mushroom Loin Fillet
  • Garlic & Herb Filet
  • Peppercorn & Garlic Tenderloin
  • Garlic & Herb Tenderloin
  • Peppercorn Sirloin
  • Garlic & Herb Sirloin  
For the month of September, all of these items are an awesome $4.99 - $9.99 – all under $10 at your local Food Lion store!

For the recipe I created, I chose to grill my Smithfield Portobello Mushroom pork loin on the grill ahead of time. I wanted that charred, smoky flavor to be evident in the finished dish. My family loves grilled meats so we enjoyed it, but if you aren't a fan you could slice the loin into bite sized pieces and stir fry them just before adding the vegetables to your wok. The nice thing about this dish is that you can use whatever vegetables you might have on hand or that your family likes... don't feel like you have to stick solely to the vegetables I used. Add your own spin! I used a combination of frozen and fresh vegetables to make things a little faster. I had a bag of frozen diced carrots as well as frozen peas and they worked beautifully. Some days the less chopping and slicing, the better!

I hope you will try this yummy recipe and give these Smithfield Marinated pork products a chance to make your family meal time fast, easy and delicious because #FlavorHailsFromSmithfield

  4. Pork fried rice is something my family all looks forward to when ordering out. I think I've only made it one time and that was long, long ago. I really like your idea of grilling the pork first for extra flavor. YUM! Can't wait to try your recipe Sherri Jo. Not only is it delicious looking, I adore all the colors!
