I’m so excited that Memorial Day weekend is rapidly approaching. This year, school is over a little early and for us, this coming weekend is the official start of summer. With that in mind, I’ve been planning a very special celebration to usher in the summer months and fill my family’s bellies at the same time. As I thought of what to make, I kept coming back to one of our seasonal favorite that’s always festive and completely satisfying; Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Berry Salsa.
My family is a pork family all year long and any time we want tender, perfectly marinated pork, we make sure to head to Food Lion for Smithfield® Marinated Fresh Pork. With a variety of tenderloins, sirloins, loin filets and pork chops that are already slow-marinated and perfectly seasoned in the bag with no extra prep work for me, these meats are great for any time of the year. But during Memorial Day weekend, when we really kick off grilling season, they are a must! Without the need to worry about marinades and seasoning, they allow me to simply open the package, have the hubs fire up the grill and in less than thirty minutes I can deliver real flavor, real fast with very little effort! In fact, pretty much all I have to do to turn out a very impressive meal is whip up some fruit salsa while the hubby is grilling and pair it with my perfectly marinated Smithfield pork and some grilled corn for a Memorial Day dinner that’s absolutely delicious! Want to see how I do it?
What You Will Need
Smithfield Roasted Garlic & Cracked Black Peppercorn Marinated Fresh Pork Tenderloin
1 Cup of Diced Strawberries
1 Cup of Halved Blueberries
1/2 of a Sweet Onion (Diced)
1/4 Cup of Hand Torn Cilantro
2 Tablespoons of Lime Juice
Salt and Pepper to Taste
How to Make It
This easy to make summer meal takes so little time to whip up but it’s amazingly flavorful. To prepare it, I take my Smithfield Roasted Garlic & Cracked Black Peppercorn Marinated Fresh Pork Tenderloin out of the package.
Now, since we’re grilling anyway, I love to wrap up some fresh corn with butter and cilantro in aluminum foil so that it can go on the grill at the same time. Once my pork and corn are ready, I turn over the duties to the grill master (AKA the hubs) because when it comes to grilling, he has no equal! He’s always excited when I have Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork on the menu because it means he has very little work to do in order to grill up a perfectly seasoned piece of meat!
Once he’s placed the pork and the ears of corn on the grill to cook to perfection, I quickly whip up my berry salsa.
This salsa is crazy easy, adds a delicious punch of summer flavor and the best part is, it’s red, white and blue, making it the perfect topping for Memorial Day grilling celebrations! To make it, I simply add my prepared strawberries, blueberries, onion and cilantro to a bowl.
After squeezing my lime juice over the top, I mix my fruit salsa up and let the flavors set while my hubby finishes his job of manning the grill.
Once he’s grilled our Smithfield Roasted Garlic & Cracked Black Peppercorn Marinated Fresh Pork Tenderloin that’s made from 100% fresh pork and has no artificial ingredients to perfection, we remove them from the grill and put together our perfect summer dish.
Onto my cutting board, I place my perfectly cooked fresh pork tenderloin and slice it to perfection for easy serving.
Then, I generously spread my fruit salsa over the the top of my sliced pork for a fresh taste and a festive look that’s just perfect for my summer cookouts! Let me just tell you, the garlic and pepper on the Smithfield marinated fresh pork pairs perfectly with the freshness of the berry salsa to create a sweet and spicy combination that is totally drool-worthy and completely amazing!
Once I’ve pulled my quick and easy meal together, all that’s to do is add my corn to the table and serve it all up to family and friends to remind them that the creating the perfect combination of summer flavors doesn’t have to be difficult. In fact, it doesn’t have to take any effort at all with help from Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork!
