School is back in session for us this week and life is going to get even more crazy. My oldest son is starting his first year in high school. HIGH SCHOOL which translates into: I feel old. How do I have a son in high school? It feels like yesterday that I was walking the halls of high school. It is so weird when you your kids grow up. He is 6 feet tall and now I look up to him. And trying to keep him fed when he has a bottomless pit can be a challenge at times.
I try so hard to still bring them a home cooked meal during the school year. And this is why 30 minute meals save us. You can still bring your family a restaurant quality meal in under 30 minutes. Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork is my go-to for a delicious, hassle free dinner because the prep work is already done for you! All you have to do is slow cook, sauté, grill, or roast for a meal that is perfect for any night of the week, even during the busy school season!
The flavor of this pork loin filet is incredible. It is slow marinated and perfectly seasoned. For this recipe I used Roasted Garlic and Herb, but it is also available in an assortment of mouthwatering flavors including Applewood Smoked Bacon, Slow Smoked Mesquite, and Slow Roasted Golden Rotisserie. It is available in a wide variety of cuts, including pork roasts, loin filets, chops, ribs, sirloins, and tenderloins, all of which can be sliced or cubed for even faster cooking. Plus, it is made with 100% fresh pork with no artificial ingredients and packed with protein.
HOW DO YOU MAKE CREAMY GARLIC PORK MARSALA?
- Start by cubing your pork loin filet. In a medium sized skillet over medium high heat add 1 Tablespoon of olive oil and pork cubes. Cook 3-4 minutes each side until pork cubes are brown and cooked throughout (to an internal temperature of 145 F). Remove and set aside on a plate.
- Add the minced garlic and mushrooms to the skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes or until tender. Set aside on the plate with the pork cubes.
- Add the chicken broth and marsala wine and bring to a boil and allow it to deglaze for about 1-2 minutes. Add in the heavy cream, ground mustard, and garlic powder. Add in cornstarch slurry and let simmer until thick for about 5-7 minutes. Put the pork and mushrooms back into the sauce and heat through.
- Serve over rice, noodles, or mashed potatoes.
WHAT KIND OF MARSALA WINE IS BEST FOR PORK MARSALA?
Marsala wine is an Italian wine with a smoky, deep flavor. When making savory dishes like chicken or pork marsala, dry Marsala is the classic choice.
WHAT CAN I SUBSTITUTE MARSALA WINE WITH?
Even though the alcohol in this dish will cook out, you can substitute with more chicken broth. If you are looking for another wine substitute, a brandy fortified wine comes close to the original. ¼ cup of dry white wine with 1 teaspoon of brandy will work just fine.
