Back to School season is BUSY! Trying to plan out meals, be ready for school, juggle new schedules of sports and music and dance… all while trying to get a good dinner on the table, is tiring!
I love meals that make it easy to get a real, filling dinner on the table for my family. Today I’m sharing a great Fall Dinner with you – Marinated Pork and Roasted Red Pepper Grilled Cheese. This amazing sandwich is made with Smithfield Garlic & Cracked Black Pepper Marinated Fresh Pork – this saves you from having to use any extra seasonings or ingredients!
Look – this is all you need to make this delicious Marinated Pork and Roasted Red Pepper Grilled Cheese! 5 real, fresh, simple ingredients!
You cook the pork (with no added seasonings or marinades needed) in the slow cooker all day. Then at dinner time it takes only 5 minutes to grill up the Marinated Pork and Roasted Red Pepper Grilled Cheese! SIMPLE. DELICIOUS. FAST. My family loved this Marinated Pork and Roasted Red Pepper Grilled Cheese !
Here’s how you make it:
Find Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork at your local Walmart (flavors range from the Garlic & Cracked Black Pepper I used, to garlic, herb, and even Applewood smoked bacon). Place pork in the slow cooker with 1 c. of water. Cook on high for 4-5 hours or low for 6-7 hours.
Once cooked, remove from slow cooker and shred pork with 2 forks. When you’re ready to make the grilled cheese sandwiches, load up some large slices of bread with pork, cheese, roasted red peppers, and green onions. Spread a little bread or oil on the bread, and sear on each side for 3-4 minutes.
Once cooked through, slice the sandwich in half and enjoy! The meat is real, all natural, and hassle free. It’s also tender, delicious, and versatile – you could easily put it on tacos, rolls, a rice bowl, or any kind of sandwich.
