A Pork Tenderloin Dinner With Honey Orange Broccoli Salad

One of the things I love about warmer weather is grilling outside on our charcoal grill. This week the weather has been unusually hot for Seattle, so we decided to have dinner out on the deck one evening.

With all of the end of the year parties and events for the kids, and our busy schedules, we need to get dinner put together pretty quickly. But we still wanted to enjoy a great barbeque, so luckily I knew just what we should put on the grill.

When I was grocery shopping at Walmart I had picked up a couple of Smithfield® Pork Tenderloin. They are already marinated, and the Peppercorn & Garlic flavor sounded delicious. We marinade a lot of our grilled meats, but it can take hours, so this was really a big time saver for us.

Smithfield® Marinated Fresh Pork is 100% pork. It's available in different flavors in Tenderloins, Loin Filets, Roast, and Ribs.

Pork is one of my favorite meats, especially for grilling. It's much more tender than beef I think, and chicken can dry out while it's cooking.

How delicious does this look? My son-in-law grilled the tenderloins pretty perfectly, and they were so amazingly good!

I had bought two, thinking one would make great sandwiches for dinner the next day. But everyone had seconds, thirds even, that's how tender and good they were. And I really love it when I find something the whole family enjoys eating.

You don't have to sacrifice having a great meal just because you need to have a quick dinner. With the great pork choices from Smithfield®, it's an easy solution for any night of the week.

When you're barbequing, it's not just about what's on the grill. The side dishes are definitely important too.

So I want to share this very easy and very tasty recipe for Honey Orange Broccoli Salad. The combination of orange juice, honey, and olive oil makes it tangy and sweet.

I just picked up a bag of chopped salad and a small head of broccoli. Chop up the broccoli and add it to the salad.

Raisins, sliced almonds, and noodle crackers go on top. But you can add or substitute ingredients. It's also great with almonds.

I really like honey, so I buy different flavors. But just regular honey is delicious in this recipe. Grate in some orange peel with a zester.

After you've made the dressing and poured it on, give everything a big stir to make sure it's all combined.

Recipe for Honey Orange Broccoli Salad


1 12 ounce package of chopped salad
1 cup chopped broccoli
4 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons olive oil
4 tablespoons fresh orange juice
grated orange peel
1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper
1/3 cups raisins
1/3 cup sliced almonds

In  large bowl, combine salad and broccoli. In a small bowl, combine honey, olive oil, orange juice, grated orange peel, and salt and pepper. Whisk together.
Pour over salad. Add toppings and mix together well.

Makes 6 servings.

My family and I enjoyed this Smithfield® Pork Tenderloin so much that I can't wait to try the other flavors. I'm sure it will be requested many times during the summer, and my grandson has already said he wants it for his birthday dinner when we celebrate it in July.

You can find Smithfield® Marinated Fresh Pork in the meat aisle at your local Walmart.

 Be sure and look for the Pork Tenderloins and grill up your own delicious and easy dinner.

Now this sounds like my kind of summer meal! We also love eating outside on the deck on warm summer evenings, and I think some grilled pork tenderloin + this salad needs to be on our menu soon. Thanks for sharing! #client
