A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to be a part of a Smithfield® Grilling Event in Kansas City at Arrowhead Stadium to help kick off National BBQ Month in May. During the event Smithfield®, my family and over 300 other grillers helped Smithfield® successfully set the first-ever Guiness World Records™ title for the largest grilling lesson! I also learned a lot of great grilling tips from World Champion pitmaster Chris Lilly and Weber grillmaster Kevin Kolman, along with Kansas City Chiefs’ Defensive End, Chris Jones.
It was such a fun evening!
To kick off summer and put my new grilling tips in place, it is the perfect time to share my favorite Smithfield® marinated pork recipe with all of you! While at the Smithfield® Grilling Event we learned how to grill delicious fresh pork recipes featuring Smithfield® Prime Back Ribs and Roasted Garlic & Herb Marinated Fresh Pork Chops. I was excited to try the other products Smithfield® offers and I found a huge variety at Walmart the other day. I selected the Smithfield® Applewood Smoked Bacon Loin Filet to create some mouth-watering Carolina Style Pork Sliders for all of you! I love that I can get real flavor, real fast with Smithfield® marinated pork.
We grill out nearly every night during the summer. It’s the perfect way to enjoy family and the outdoors which is our favorite place to be! Dinner plans can often be forgotten and that’s where Smithfield® Marinated Fresh Pork comes in! Smithfield® offers a variety of marinated fresh pork options to create easy weeknight meals. Even if we don’t grill out, Smithfield® Marinated Fresh Pork can be easily prepared in a variety of ways including, grilled, roasted or sautéed. What I love about the Smithfield® Applewood Smoked Bacon Loin Filet is that we can enjoy it as is for dinner and use the leftovers to create pork sliders. It makes for real flavor, real fast! Our pork sliders can be created in under 30 minutes!
Carolina Style Pork Sliders with Smithfield® Marinated Fresh Pork
To create these delicious pork sliders you’ll first need to select your Smithfield® Marinated Fresh Pork. Walmart has a huge selection put I’d suggest going with a Smithfield® marinated roast, loin filet or tenderloin. All of Smithfield® Marinated Fresh Pork is 100% pork. With the roast you can make it more of a pulled pork slider. The choice is completely up to you! I selected the Smithfield® Applewood Smoked Bacon Loin Filet.
