With Back-to-School time approaching fast, it’s time to get serious about meal planning. It seems like when school starts everything gets crazy busy and the last thing I want to be stressing about is dinner plans. I do so much better about cooking when I meal plan. If I don’t have a plan, 4:00 pm springs on me and I start grabbing whatever I can find in the cabinet.
If you do meal plan, I bet you’re the same way. If you don’t, you really should try it. I find tons of great, easy kid-friendly meals on Pinterest and sometimes, I get a stroke of genius and make my own!
This is one of those times, but I have to admit, I was inspired by the main course. If you look in my refrigerator you’ll almost always find a Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork Tenderloin at any given time. They’re a staple in our house for a few reasons – they taste great, they’re fresh, and my family loves them. Oh yeah, they’re super easy and cook in under 30 minutes too! So whether you meal plan or not, this is one dinner idea you can always count on.
On my most recent shopping trip I spotted one of our favorite flavors, the Smithfield Marinated Roasted Garlic & Herb Fresh Pork Tenderloin. The fresh pork is marinated already and it’s delicious on its own, but I love easy and fast and I definitely love a good one pan meal – so that’s usually how I prepare these. It makes everything super easy to cook as well as clean up. I also usually bake the tenderloin, but this time I decided to try something different since my family loves to grill.
While you could easily just grill it on its own, I decided to go with another trend that we’ve been doing this summer – foil packets. Have you done these yet?! Such easy clean-up and the flavors of everything you’re cooking inside blend together perfectly.
While eating out recently, I saw a drink on a restaurant menu that totally inspired this combination. It was a Rosemary Peach Lemonade and I couldn’t get it out of my head when I started thinking about a foil packet dinner! So that’s exactly what you’ll find surrounding my tenderloin – peaches and rosemary. I added a few sliced gold potatoes because… we Southerners need our potatoes, y’all!
Prepping this dish was as easy as it looks. The Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork Tenderloin is already marinated perfectly so there’s no prep needed there. Just open up the package and get ready to cook. I sliced my potatoes and peaches in a few moments then laid them around the tenderloin. I did mix together a bit of olive oil, honey, and ginger to glaze the peaches and potatoes and laid the rosemary right on top of it all.
Tip: Be sure to really wrap your foil packets tightly. Mine ripped as I was trying to turn this over [it’s a big foil packet!] and I lost some of that yummy juice.
While you could definitely prepare this dish in the oven, I love grilling when the weather is nice. It keeps the house from heating up and it definitely makes your neighbors jealous when they smell that rosemary and peach combination wafting into their yard.
