Imagine those times when you’re having a crazy-busy day. You can lighten the dinner prep load a little, even if you only have a few minutes to spare. You can easily order the ingredients you need for this recipe on Walmart’s Online Grocery Pickup Service. The image below is what the online option looks like, and it’s really easy to use.
When you check out online, you’ll select a scheduled pick up time. Then, just head to the designated Grocery Pickup Area at your selected Walmart store, call the number posted outside the door, and a helpful employee will bring your order straight to your car. Super simple!
This was the first time I’ve used the service, and it was just what I needed!
Grilling happens, like, five out of seven nights at my house, no joke. This gave me the perfect opportunity to make this tasty pork dish.
Choosing quality ingredients for my recipes is always a must, which is why I like using Smithfield All Natural Fresh Pork for this dish. Smithfield® is now available at Wamart (hip, hip hooray for convenience!), and the all natural boneless pork chops I used are part of Smithfield’s Guaranteed Tender line of products.
The Guaranteed Tender qualification means that:
- Smithfield hand-selects cuts based on coloring and marbling
- The process is USDA Verified
- The product is proudly raised in the USA
- Product it fresh and never frozen
I love this guarantee, and I love that Smithfield supplies naturally tender and juicy fresh pork with no artificial ingredients, no preservatives, no added steroids or hormones. You can taste the quality!
This Korean-style BBQ sauce may be a little different from another that you’ve had. I’m not claiming total authenticity with my sauce, but that’s what makes cooking a delight: you get to do your own thing!
This sauce is sweet and spicy and sticky and totally delicious. I think you’ll love it, and it’s the perfect partner for grilled pork.
Okay, okay, one more example to prove my point with this super-simple Sriracha-Roasted Pork with Sweet Potatoes. This couldn’t be easier to make with just a few ingredients.
The next chance you get, fire up your grill to make Grilled Pork with Korean-Style BBQ Sauce. It’s so delicious, and so easy to make. It’s sure to become a family favorite!
