Have you found that your desire to serve great weeknight meals that are both different and delicious collides with a very busy family schedule? You keep falling back on the old faithful recipes that go together fast. I sure have been there. That is why I am so excited about Smithfield® Marinated Fresh Pork. It comes in several varieties that are all 100% Fresh Pork. They are already marinated and perfectly seasoned. So now you don’t have to turn to less flavorful options when you are in a hurry to answer that “what’s for dinner” question!
I am particularly fond of the Smithfield® Applewood Smoked Bacon Pork Loin Filet so that is what I ordered this time from Walmart’s Grocery Pick Up Online service.
So, when I talk about busy, I mean I am BUSY! In addition to my usual work schedule, we have had special event after special event on the calendar this summer: dance recitals, piano recitals, birthday parties, baby showers. I am so busy that even grocery shopping is hard to fit in.
That is why I decided to pre-order my Smithfield® Applewood Smoked Bacon Pork Loin Filets online from Walmart. That way I could have Walmart pull my order together for me and I could just drop by for them to bring it right to my car. It was so easy. Love it!
First, go to the Walmart website sign into your Walmart online account. (If you do not have one, it is so simple to do.)
Next, search for the products you want to order. In this case, I entered the search term “Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork” and this is the screen that came up.
Then I clicked on the Smithfield Applewood Smoked Bacon Fresh Pork Loin Filet and ordered 2 of them. After that, I ordered some other things I needed, paid for the order using my credit card and chose a day and time that I would be stopping by to get it. The time slots are an hour long so it gave me a little flexibility. I chose 2pm-3pm. See? There is my order in my cart=>
I drove to Walmart on the day and time I had requested. There is a big sign on the building saying “Pick Up.” I pulled around that side of the building and pulled into a marked parking space for pick up. There is a telephone number on the sign for customers to call. I called it and they answered immediately. After identifying myself, they cheerfully replied that they would be right out with my order. A young man, wearing a special employee vest, came to the car and put it in the trunk for me. It was that easy!
I received an email confirmation after I picked up my order.
Grilling Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork
Now it was time to go home and fire up that grill! Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork makes quick meals so easy. I simply put together a field greens salad for a side dish and cooked the Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork till it was done.
Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork is made with real, all-natural ingredients, which I love. Other all-natural ingredients include pork broth, vinegar, salt and spices – ingredients you can pronounce!
What is “done?” The label says that the internal temperature at the thickest part should be 160º F so that is what I did.
Soon as it reaches temperature, take it off the grill and let it sit out for 10 minutes. Now it is ready for you to slice and serve!
While you are waiting for that 10 minutes, make your side dish. This field greens salad is just as easy to create as the pork was to cook on the grill.
