One of the (many) things I miss about Carolina is the easy access to pulled pork barbecue. I swear nothing compares! I used to think the only way I could get that down south southern goodness was either in a restaurant or Sunday dinner at an elderly persons home. Boy was I wrong! I decided to try my hand at it for Sunday’s game and it was a success!

 

Pulled Pork #KHGameTime

You may remember I showed you some sneak peaks at how I gear up for game day. In case you missed it you can find it here. I’m still in the planning stage for the big game (you know which one 😛 ) but that doesn’t mean I can’t serve up some goodies for guests while they’re here taking advantage of the Sunday Ticket.

In case you’re wondering, yes those are KING’S HAWAIIAN® rolls playing catch with the pulled pork. I can’t think of a better roll to do that. Did you know they have hamburger buns too? Oh yea they do! The sweet rolls are always in my kitchen and Walmart never lets me down when I run out.

Let’s get down to business though. I’m going to tell you how to make these amazing pulled pork sandwiches so you can serve them up at your next game day, or any other time!

Pulled Pork Sandwich

First things first, start with your pork. I used a pound of pork steaks (you don’t have to get fancy or spend a ton of money!). Fill a pot with 3 cups of water and add some salt. Put your pork in the pot, cover, and cook for about 2 hours on medium heat.

Once your meat is nice and tender you’re going to take two forks and pull it apart. It should flake apart effortlessly but if it doesn’t you may need to cook it a little longer.

Once it’s shredded go ahead and drain the remaining water. Put the pork back in the pot along with 2 cups of your favorite barbecue sauce. This can be homemade or store-bought – the choice is yours. Cover the pot and heat it on low heat for 1 hour to 90 minutes. Make sure the heat is on low so you don’t scorch the meat!

Now get your KING’S HAWAIIAN® buns ready and pile the pork on top. Don’t be greedy now 🙂 Add a heaping tablespoon of mashed potatoes on the pork and put the top bun on. You can whip up several of these at a time to easily serve your guests.

Summer is an awesome time to relax and unwind. It also has a tendency to throw us off our routines. Getting back on track can take some time, especially when it comes to finding time for family dinner. Lucky for us there’s help for that and it’s available at your local Walmart!

Cheesy Stuffed Smithfield Marinated Pork Tenderloin

Smithfield Marinated Pork takes effortless meals to a new level. With so many varieties and infinite possibilities you can whip together a meal the entire family will love. One of our favorites is this easy cheesy stuffed marinated pork loin. It’s huge on flavor and the best part is you can make it over and over with the different flavors of Smithfield Marinated Pork!

First let’s preheat the oven to  400°F.

 Cheesy Stuffed Smithfield Marinated Pork Tenderloin

To get started we’re going to cut the tenderloin down the center (lengthwise – do not cut in half, we just want to butterfly the tenderloin) and place it on a piece of wax paper. We’re going to place another sheet of wax paper over the tenderloin and pound it out flat, about 3/4 of an inch thick.

Now we’re going to add the filling. For this you’ll use your favorite prepared stuffing and cubes (or a couple handfuls of shredded) cheese. I like to use American or Gouda but you know what your family likes, go with that! Spread a thin layer of stuffing over the flattened tenderloin and cover with cheese.

Roll the tenderloin up (yes, like a jelly roll) and secure with twine or toothpicks. Place it in a shallow baking dish and bake for 30 minutes (or until a meat thermometer registers 160°F.)

Let the roast sit for 5 minutes then slice into medallions. Serve with your preferred veggies and you have the perfect dinner!
