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.

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
