Enjoy delicious Sweet Teriyaki Pork with Garlic Oven Roasted Vegetables in 30 minutes, making it a perfect weeknight dinner!
With Baby Liam’s arrival, we’ve been having lots of discussions about meal prep and menu ideas. We want ideas on hand that are quick because I certainly don’t want to be standing in the kitchen for an hour doing dinner prep and we also need ideas that are easy enough for Bryan to make. We cannot live on canned and boxed food, despite what he might suggest. So when I stumbled upon Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork in Kroger, I was inspired and ended up making Sweet Teriyaki Pork with Garlic Roasted Vegetables in 30 minutes.Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork offers Real Flavor Real Fast, and it definitely meets our post-Liam dinner criteria. I consider 30 minutes to a delicious home cooked meal a big win. Plus, Smithfield did all the marinating work so all you really need to do is unwrap it and put it on the pan, which is easy enough for even the most amateur or rushed cook.
The Sweet Teriyaki marinated pork tenderloin has a rich, savory flavor that pairs well with easy Garlic Oven Roasted Vegetables. I went with broccoli and carrots because I think they pair especially well with Asian inspired flavors. The best thing about these veggies is after very simple prep work, you can throw them into the oven at the same time as the pork.
- 1 Smithfield Marinated Sweet Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin
- 2 heads of broccoli cut into florets
- 16 oz baby carrots or full carrots cut into smaller pieces
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 5 cloves of garlic minced
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- Preheat oven to 425°.
- Place your pork tenderloin in a roasting pan, lined with foil to make cleanup easier.
- Cut fresh broccoli into florets, rinse and let drain. Clean and prep your carrots if using full carrots. In a mixing bowl; whisk together the olive oil, garlic, pepper, salt, and lemon juice. Add the broccoli and carrots and mix well.
- Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Spread broccoli and carrots evenly in single layer (if overcrowded, they will steam more than roast).
- Add the pork tenderloin and the vegetable to the oven. Roast your veggies for 20-25 minutes, flipping half way through. Roast the pork for 25-30 minutes (average 20 minutes per pound); use a meat thermometer to make sure the internal temperature reads 145 degrees F.
What’s even better than one easy meal in 30 minutes or less? How about two? Take any leftover meat and veggies, cut them up into smaller pieces, and toss them over rice tomorrow to make an Asian inspired rice bowl for dinner. I definitely recommend drizzling a little extra teriyaki sauce over top to add a punch of flavor with the rice addition. You won’t be sorry!
