The weather is turning warmer and our days our filling up with all sorts of activities. Even though I have been busy I still like to put a good, hot meal on the table for the family to enjoy. Being able to create a delicious, fresh meal in 30 minutes that makes my day. My recipe for 30 minute Pepper Pork fits the bill. It is 30 minutes from the starting of cutting of the vegetables to the meal being ready to serve. To prepare this meal so quick requires some multi-tasking such as getting the rice ready while the vegetables are cooking. By following my easy steps and easy ways to multi-task you too can have a wonderful meal ready for your family.
To make this recipe even quicker to fix I picked up a Smithfield Slow Cooked Mesquite Flavored Pork Loin Filet while I was shopping at Walmart. They are on roll back during the month of April and are perfect to use for a weeknight dinner. I appreciate that Smithfield marinated fresh pork is 100% fresh pork and is perfectly seasoned with natural ingredients. The flavor to me was really delicious and it was wonderful because it was seasoned and ready to go.
I like this recipe because it is full of fresh vegetables that are colorful and flavorful. While my skillet is heating up to a medium-high heat, I sliced up 1 yellow, orange, red and green bell pepper and 1 yellow onion. When the skillet is ready, sauté 1 Tbl minced garlic in 1 TBL olive oil for one minute. Then add the peppers and onions. Allow the peppers and onions to cook for 6-8 minutes until just tender.
While the vegetables are cooking slice the Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork into thin strips. When the vegetables are slightly tender add the pork and cook about 8-10 minutes until cooked thoroughly, stirring every now and then.
While the meat and vegetables are cooking prepare 3 cups of quick cooking rice according to the package directions. When all the elements of the meal are ready you are ready to enjoy. Simply serve the 30 minute Pepper Pork over rice for a delicious meal.
I also like to fix meals that I can use as leftovers for lunch the next day. 30 minute pepper pork is a perfect dish for that. For a lunch twist put some left over pepper pork on a tortilla, add some shredded lettuce on top and you have a quick and delicious lunch wrap.
I hope that you will try this fantastic recipe. When I served it to my family last night they raved about how delicious and full of flavor it was. My husband declared it a keeper and so do I since it is so easy to fix!
