Certain days of the school week are busier than others, and it is tempting to order take-out. However, if you are like me and trying to save money, you are looking for an easy solution to a week night dinner. This quest actually lead me to create an EASY Asian Inspired Pork and Vegetables With A Peanut Sauce Recipe.
To get started preparing my meal, I first needed to cook a Smithfield® Garlic and Herb Pork Loin Filet. I had picked one up the evening before at Walmart, and was I super excited because I also had a .75 off Coupon to go with it. You can also print the coupon and save for a limited time, .75 off Coupon for Smithfield® Marinated Meat Product.
Around lunchtime, I cooked the 2 Pound Pork Loin in the oven at 425 degrees for 40 minutes. My house smelled amazing.
When the timer went off, I confirmed it was done by verifying with a thermometer that it reached 145 degrees Fahrenheit.
After it rested for a few minutes, I moved to a plate and stuck it in the fridge for later. FYI, this could be done the night before.
That evening when I got home, I finished putting together my recipe.
Pork and Vegetables With A Peanut Sauce Serves 4-6
2 pounds of Thinly Sliced Precooked Smithfield® Garlic and Herb Pork Loin Filet
1 Pound Bag of Frozen Sugar Snap Pea Stir Fry Vegetables
1 Tbsp of Olive Oil
2 Cups of Prepared White Rice
1/2 Cup of Coconut Milk
2 Tbsps of Creamy Peanut Butter
1 Tbsp of Soy Sauce
I first put my rice on to cook and then chopped up the pork.
FYI, I cut the pork down the middle, trimmed off any visible fat, and thinly sliced the 2 halves to give me smaller strips.
Then, I combined the ingredients for the Peanut Sauce in a pan and cooked it on Medium/Low until combined, stirring occasionally.
Once combined, I moved the temperature to Low continuing to stir occasionally.
Next, I put a Tablespoon of Olive Oil in a pan on Medium and added the frozen stir fry vegetables to it.
I covered the pan and let it cook for 10 minutes stirring occasionally.
Once the veggies were ready, I added the pork and poured the Peanut Sauce over this.
I combined everything and covered again. I then moved the temperature to Medium/Low for 10 minutes stirring occasionally.
When it was ready, I served the Pork and Vegetables With A Peanut Sauce over White Rice. I even gave the kiddos and hubby some chop sticks to eat it with. (Attempted to eat was more like it, so they also got a fork.)
