My fellow bloggers will understand the funny mishap surrounding this blog post: I made a pot roast, complete with Smithfield® Garlic & Herb Pork Sirloin, potatoes, carrots and celery…then totally forgot to take photos before the family started digging in to dinner that night! It all happened so fast, before I knew it, half the roast was eaten. Oops! The bright side of this little mishap was that I had an excuse for making another pork sirloin in the same week! I picked up a second Smithfield® Garlic & Herb Pork Sirloin at Walmart and made these tasty Marinated Pork Tacos for dinner on Sunday night, and boy were they tasty!
I am sure it’s safe to say that every family wants to enjoy a nice homemade meal after a long day. However, with busy schedules and tired parents, the task of getting into the kitchen and spending an hour prepping dinner isn’t always feasible. I have been trying to cook with more fresh ingredients and kick our nasty (albeit convenient) take out habit, so I welcome any shortcut I can use to make dinner time easier!
You can pick up Smithfield® Marinated Pork at your local Walmart and it saves a ton of prep work so that you can still cook a delicious family meal without a lot of hassle. Smithfield® Marinated Pork is 100 fresh pork and has been slow marinated in a variety of seasonings – all you have to do it cook it!
My first venture was a Smithfield® Marinated Pork roast with potatoes, carrots and celery, which was super easy to make. I simply peeled and chopped the veggies (which took all of five minutes) and then threw it all in the slow cooker for 6 hours on low. The result was a moist, delicious pork roast!
I went back to Walmart and used this .75¢ Smithfield® Marinated Pork coupon to purchase another sirloin, but I wanted to try something different. It had been a few weeks since we had tacos, so I made this really easy Marinated Pork Tacos recipe!
As easy as the slow cooker pork roast was, these Marinated Pork Tacos were pretty simple too. I switched things up a little and instead of piling our tacos with lettuce and tomatoes, I used black beans and Spanish rice for a different flavor combination. They really complimented the pork seasoning!
Smithfield Marinated Pork Tacos
- 1 Smithfield Marinated Pork Sirloin
- 1 15 ounce can of seasoned black beans
- 1 package of Spanish style Ready Rice
- 1/2 a tomato chopped
- 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- soft flour tortillas
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and put your Smithfield Marinated Pork Garlic and Herb Sirloin into a baking dish.
Cook at 350 for 1.5 hours. Remove the sirloin and set aside to allow the juices to settle.
Cook the rice and beans according to package directions and chop tomato. Warm tortillas according to package directions. I like to put into the microwave, on a plate topped with a damp paper towel for 25 seconds.
Cut the sirloin into small pieces (think taco chunks).
Arrange on your tortillas and your dinner is ready!
Now, we are only a family of three, so I didn’t need to use the entire Smithfield® Marinated Pork Sirloin for our tacos. The “leftovers” will make a delicious easy dinner the next day!
I hope that you try this marinated pork tacos recipe for yourself, it’s so good!
