School Started! And We’re Busy!
We are already four weeks into the school year and it’s going great so far! Although, everyday does seem to feel a bit like a marathon! I am up at 6 am to get myself ready for work, and the kids ready for school. It’s 5 pm by the time we get home, then we have lunch boxes to clean, homework to do, baths to give, and dinner to make – all before their 7:45 pm bedtime.
30 Minute Dinners are a MUST on Busy Weekdays
When it comes to dinner on busy week nights, I turn to Smithfield® Marinated Fresh Pork for Real Flavor Real Fast. With their variety of marinated fresh pork options, I can have a flavorful dinner on the table in about 30 minutes!
This week, I decided to make my family Cuban Pork Sliders. My pork sliders are made with Smithfield Roasted Garlic & Herb Loin Filet, which pack a ton of flavor into each bite!
Once cooked, the pork gets layered onto toasted rolls that are smeared with mustard. Then a few quick-pickled jalapenos are layered onto the pork (for the adults who like spicy foods) — then a slice of swiss cheese goes on top.
In about 40 minutes, these Spicy Cuban Pork Sliders hit the dinner table!
These Spicy Cuban Pork Sliders are definitely in my top 5 favorite sandwiches! They have a wonderful balance of savory and spicy flavors.
You can also dice any leftover pork and toss it with cooked noodles & butter for a quick and easy lunch the next day!
