If there’s one thing my family loves, it’s a delicious dinner. If there’s one thing I love, it’s an easy-to-prepare delicious dinner.

By the end of the day, between school drop-offs and pick-ups, house work, and writing… this Mama is tired! That’s why you’ll almost always find 30 minutes meals prepared in our home, especially during the week and especially during the holidays.

One of my favorites to prepare is in fact, marinated pork loins because of those very reasons. Everyone in the family loves them and believe it or not, it takes just 30 minutes to cook.

With all of the holiday programs that the girls are involved in and all of the holiday baking that I’ve been doing, I need easy weeknight meals like these!

This week I decided to pair one of my favorite vegetables sides with the Smoked Bacon Pork Loin Filet.

Now, I’ll admit before you start thinking my children are little saints, that my husband and me are the only ones that love brussels sprouts. I can usually convince both girls to eat a crispy leaf from one, but that’s about as far as it goes.

Spoiler Alert: Sophia ate her entire portion of brussels sprouts with this meal! I’ll attribute it to the fact that they soaked up the delicious flavor of the apples and Smoked Bacon Pork Loin Filet.

A few months ago I shared another 30 minutes meals recipe, with a bacon twist of my own. My family loved this Smithfield Pork Loin so much that these tenderloins have been made a weekly staple in my dinner menu!

So imagine my delight when I saw the Smithfield Applewood Smoked Bacon Pork Loin Filet during my recent shopping trip. It’s a flavor that I have never found at another store and I immediately knew that it would turn into one of our favorites.

I am in love with this pork loin for a few reasons – the Smithfield marinated pork tenderloins are always perfectly seasoned and make the rest of your meal taste just as good. But I also love that there are a variety of ways to cook marinated pork loins. And they cook so quickly!

I don’t have any Brussels sprouts. Do you think I could sub broccoli? This recipe looks delicious!

I think broccoli would taste fantastic with it! You might want to throw them at the end if you don't, they might get mushy and overcooked.

I know that Food Lion (if you have one) carries this item. Rather than bake, I use my power pressure cooker and make one pot meals in 20 to 25 minutes. Often I start the meal and cook part way say 15 to 20 minutes and with this one I often make Mac & Cheese adding my vegetable on the rack provided. NOTE: I can't exactly tell you how much liquid is needed for the mac & cheese. I rarely cook by instructions but you only need about half the normal amount to cook in the PPC. Since I add at the start about 1 cup of water to the meat I guess at the difference for the noodles. (regular noodles are a nice switch for the mac & cheese) I do know for rice I use one cup of liquid to one cup of rice in my PPC. Generally 5 to 8 more minutes for your noodles to cook is all that is needed. This allows the vegetable to absorb the flavor of the smoked lion filet. NOTE: I know there are many different power pressure cookers but I have used several and I will make a plug here: The Power Pressure Cooker XL or the older version Power Pressure Cooker Plus is the best I have ever used. They are quick to come to pressure and fast. I have cut stove time to about 1/4 of what I once did. NOTE: If your meat is still frozen or partly frozen do allow a few extra minutes for cook time.
