My husband is a meat and potatoes guy. He especially loves meat and french fries. One of the easiest meals to make for Father’s Day is pork loin and french fries with gravy. The (way too easy) recipe is at the end of this post.
For some people, spending hours in the kitchen is their act of love. And sometimes that is true for me too. But Will and I prefer to spend quality time together. Delicious food can be crafted with a few shortcuts. In fact, Will loved this pork loin meal – and it only took 30 minutes total!
The secret to the shortcut is to purchase Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork loin filets. They literally come ready to grill, bake, or pan fry. And they are so juicy and delicious! If you cook them correctly, they won’t be dry!
The first thing is – the more money you save on food, the more money you have for Father’s Day gifts. I shop almost exclusively at Food Lion. I love watching the total amount at the cash register go down after handing the cashier my Food Lion MVP card! And I always find fantastic deals on meat and produce there too.
For this recipe, buy the Smithfield Roasted Garlic & Herb Marinated Fresh Pork Loin Filet. For my family of 4, one loin filet is enough. But this Father’s Day holiday we will have 3 kids here so I bought two filets.
What’s in the bag? Pork and seasonings. It has no artificial ingredients, just seasonings. I feel great saving time with this little shortcut.
