GrilledIt’s almost summer! Have you broken out the grill yet?

How often do you grill pork? Because if you aren’t, you should do it more often.. it’s delicious.

Smithfield® Marinated Fresh Pork is already marinaded and ready to go on the charcoal grill. It makes summer dinnertime SO easy.


I picked up a 100% Pork Smithfield® Garlic & Herb Sirloin for a great price at my local Walmart, sliced it into four smaller pieces, fired up the charcoal grill and dinner ready in almost no time.


For the meal I paired the pork with a Grilled Peach Salad with Basil. It really was yummy and a great change of pace from our favorite standards. It was kind of fun to cook peaches on the grill. I’ve never done that before and they turned out great.

Tip: If possible use freestone peaches. These variety come apart from the seed much easier than clingstone.


I made the salad with fresh baby green, thin sliced fresh basil, and creamy goat cheese. All dressed with an easy to make basil vinaigrette.

The peach salad is such a fantastic summer salad that you may want to make all year round!


After the meal was done there was lots of Smithfield® Garlic & Herb Sirloin left over and it’s perfect for making a different meal the next night like sandwiches, tacos, even spaghetti!
