There are two kinds of people in this world – sliders people and not-sliders people.

I am a sliders girl! I love full-sized meals as much as the next person, but I had a burger for lunch the other day, and I could easily have fallen asleep during the next several hours. It was somewhat comical! Ever since I was a kid, I have absolutely loved sliders. I think it probably originated at all of the Bar/Bat Mitzvahs and Sweet Sixteens I went to in the NJ/NY area. Have you ever had the pleasure? There’s always a kids menu with kid-sized appetizers and meals. I’m talking little hot dogs, little pizzas, and of course, little burgers. Now my pork sliders are big kid/adult food. The marinated pork flavor is SO BIG!

You can dress them up with my spicy slaw, or you can be like half of my family and have lettuce, tomatoes and Dijon mustard. We had a pretty even split. I am sharing my spicy slaw recipe anyway, because I think you can take it too!

Life is busy lately, no doubt. When I thought it was busy before, I was never factoring in what it would be like with two kids in school. Luckily, homework hasn’t started yet but I’m predicting it will get even more hectic around here in October. We need to utilize our favorite 30-minute dinners. Scarlet gets so hungry after track practice that I have to be able to make something filling and fast. That’s where Smithfield® Marinated Fresh Pork comes in! It’s truly “Real Flavor Real Fast.” Our favorite Walmart will always have an awesome selection. I love Smithfield Roasted Garlic & Cracked Peppercorn Tenderloin.

My kids are sliders people too. And the “What’s for dinner?” question is a plaguing one in my household. So we turn to Marinated Fresh Pork – it’s flavorful and versatile. You don’t need anything else! You also don’t have to look beyond getting great quality meat right in your local Walmart meat department. Smithfield® Marinated Fresh Pork is 100% pork, and is available in a variety of flavors across Tenderloins, Loin Filets and roasts. Enjoy it grilled, roasted, sautéed, and more!

Like sliders!

In my family we’re pretty evenly split on toasting the sliders buns or not. It’s the same way we’re split on spicy slaw or lettuce and tomato. Of course, you can also do all of the above too! There’s no limits to your sliders. I love mustard!

That said, the amazing pork tenderloin flavor is enough for me! Another great trick is that repurposing the leftovers of this meal helps us save money and time. I take extra slices (medallions) of tenderloin and scramble it into eggs. YUM.
