Evenings around my house are a whirlwind! After getting off of work and picking up my kids from school and daycare, it seems like there is long to-do list once we arrive home. There is homework, dinner, and baths that all have to happen before I get the kids into a bedtime routine. In an effort to save time (i.e., survive), I try to keep my dinner recipes under 30 minutes.
One of the best 30-minute recipes I created this week was my Mexican Egg Roll recipe. I combined Boneless Pork Shoulder Seasoned Carnitas with a ton of fresh veggies, piled them into an egg roll wrapper, and baked them until crisp. It turned out to be such an easy recipe that packed in a ton of flavor. My whole family loved them!
My secret to making these Mexican Egg Rolls in only 30 minutes is to use Smithfield Marinated Boneless Pork Shoulder Seasoned Carnitas. Smithfield Marinated 100% pork products adds fantastic, developed flavors to a dish, while saving time.
I simply added the carnitas to a slow cooker with a little bit of water, and set it on low in the morning. By evening, my house smells delicious and I am 25 minutes away from the best homemade Mexican Egg Roll recipe.
