Bacon wrapped around pork loin? Well, why didn’t you say so??

And there’s really not much to say other than “YUM.” I LOVE Smithfield®. We buy their ribs, their bacon, their lunch meat, their sausage, and their Marinated Fresh Pork. This is the BEST time of year for it. I think probably all times of year are perfect for Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork, but there’s something about a delicious and easy meal you can whip up in 30 minutes. My recipe is SO easy to prep and make, and it smells and tastes amazing.

Cassidy was working with a builder on our chicken coop (more like chicken palace) yesterday, and Scarlet had a friend over. It was cool out with a spring breeze that almost felt like autumn, and I knew I had to make something that would perk up the chicken coop builder, and get the attention of three busy kids. The “What’s For Dinner?” question is a big and annoying one in my household, and I’ll do whatever it takes to avoid it. How to avoid it?

Action. Sweet, sweet action. (or should I say savory action?)

First, I go to Walmart. I go there a few times a week anyway, and ours has an exquisite collection of Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork to inspire my favorite Bacon-Wrapped Pork recipe. For my busy family of four, Smithfield® creates easy weeknight and weekend meals, and delicious lunch leftovers (more on that later). Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork is so flavorful, and comes in a variety of options. My recipe can be cooked in 30 minutes and it does not require a lot of ingredients! First, I go into the pork section of the deli to find Smithfield Roasted Garlic and Cracked Black Pepper Tenderloin. You can use any other flavor – I happen to love this one.

As I have mentioned, Smithfield® offers a variety of marinated fresh pork options to create easy weeknight and weekend meals. And wait until you see my leftover lunch “recipe” too. It’s REALLY good! These “Real Flavor, Real Fast” options are beneficial to my family. When I saw we’re busy, we are BUSY. Cassidy and I both work around the clock, and we also are currently building a strawberry garden, a chicken flock, and a chicken coop! Add the dog, the cat, and household errands, and dinner should be easy. Whether you like Tenderloins, Loin Filets, or Roasts, and whether you like them grilled, roasted, sautéed, and more – there’s an option. Here’s one of mine:

Speaking of which, wait until you try the leftovers the next day! Here’s my tip. Also, buy soft sandwich rolls. Then use a slice of bacon-wrapped pork loin as the meat of your sandwich. They cut into perfect tender circles. See?


Add lettuce and tomatoes (and condiments) and then you have a PBLT. It’s like a BLT but with pork added as well.

  1. OK, I will let you in on a little secret, I don’t really care for pork. Don’t get me wrong, I like ham or bacon. But regular pork not so much. Yet, wrapping it in bacon is ingenious and might give me the incentive to like it! 🙂

  2. I don’t think I’ve ever heard of Smithfield before, but it looks like I’ve been missing out. Ohhhhh I can’t wait to see the new chicken palace. I hate when people ask me what’s for dinner, I never answer, I always say its a surprise. This bacon wrapped pork looks delicious, I can’t believe it only takes 30 minutes to prepare.

  4. Oh my god! My mouth is watering up by looking at this. I really want to make this right now. Heading to the market to pick up the goods. It looks so yummy I want it in my tummy.

  5. Bacon wrapped anything is excellent! I have bacon wrapped asparagus and hot dogs, but never a pork loin before. This looks like a good dinner recipe that I should make soon.

  6. Bacon makes everything better! We already love those pork loins, so I didn’t know it was possible…but you have indeed gone and made it better. 🙂 I’m pretty sure no work got done on that chicken coop once the smell of this dinner started wafting out of the kitchen. Thanks for sharing! #client

  7. I don’t know which is more tasty, bacon or pork. This is a double treat, for sure. Hubby and I will both enjoy dinner tonight and I will enjoy the leftovers while he is at work!
