Today I’m sharing one of my favorite ways to get a quick, healthy, delicious meal on the table. I’ve been sharing many delicious pork recipes with you, but the cooking method for this one is even simpler.
This Teriyaki Pork Loin with Pineapple Relish starts with a Smithfield Sweet Teriyaki Marinated Fresh Pork Tenderloin. What’s special about this pork loin is that it’s slow-marinated and perfectly seasoned, so all you have to do is open the package – no herbs to chop or spices to measure.
Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork is also available in a wide variety of other fresh cuts, including pork roasts, loin filets, pork chops, and tenderloins. I often cook them whole, but they can be cubed or sliced for even faster cooking. I slice the pork loin for this recipe and it cooks in just minutes.
The pineapple relish is flavorful and simple to make, plus you can use the same pan as the pork loin! I love fresh pineapple in this recipe but canned will definitely work, especially since you’re giving it a quick sauté. I also add an entire minced, fresh jalapeño for some spice, but you can either reduce the amount you add or omit it entirely if that’s not your thing. I’ll even add mine separately since not everyone in my family wants the spice.
I normally serve this Teriyaki Pork Loin with Pineapple Relish over white rice but will occasionally make cauliflower rice instead – it’s delicious! (I found a bag of frozen cauliflower rice at my local Costco and now always keep it in my freezer).
Smithfield has so many great choices for easy dinners that you can easily create your own recipes with any or all of them!
