Tender pork sirloin, marinated in roasted garlic and herbs gets sliced and stir fried then tops vegetables coated in a wonderful maple cider glaze. Sound good? This quick and easy pork stir fry dinner is yours in minutes!
I’m excited that today’s post is sponsored by my friends over at Smithfield. Smithfield is proud to be the leader in marinated fresh pork. They continuously strive to provide customers with new and delicious mouthwatering flavors, all using 100% fresh pork. An added bonus is they use no artificial ingredients.
If you need a hassle-free dinner that’s ready in about 30 minutes or less, Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork is your go-to choice for a delicious dinner the entire family will enjoy. Slow-marinated and perfectly seasoned, Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork is available in an assortment of mouthwatering flavors, such as Hickory Smoked Brown Sugar, Slow Smoked Mesquite, Sweet Teriyaki, and Slow Roasted Golden Rotisserie.
For dinner the other night I used their Roasted Garlic & Herb Marinated Fresh Pork Sirloin for this incredibly easy stir fry. Outstanding flavor and it’s gluten free for those watching that!
For this pork stir fry I thought I would shake it up a bit without the usual Asian flavors and made a maple, apple cider vinegar and dijon mustard glaze for the vegetables. As with any stir fry you are going to need to have all of your ingredients cut uniformly to cook quick and evenly. Things move quickly! By only having to slice the already marinated pork sirloin dinner was on the table within 30 minutes.
I sliced up broccolini, asparagus, carrots, red bell peppers, red onion and an apple for a little nod to the Fall flavors in the glaze. This sliced pork sirloin is tender and with the fresh stir fried vegetables, a great change for the family that’s sure to please. The marinated pork sirloin gets a quick sear in the skillet to caramelize and is so tender. I added them on top of the glazed vegetables and dinner was done. I felt they didn’t need to be tossed with the glaze and wanted that marinade flavor to shine through on it’s own.
What I find is most pre-packaged, marinated meats always seem overly salty, Smithfield’s do not. Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork has a wide variety of fresh cuts, including pork roasts, loin filets, sirloins, pork chops and tenderloins, and can be sliced or cubed for even faster cooking. Couldn’t be simpler, right?
