Have you taken the time to enter the Smithfield “Hero of the Grill” Sweepstakes yet?

We have some great deals on all your favorite Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork products as part of the new ad at Publix. You can stock up on all your favorites and pay as little as $3.99 for a tasty meal starter.

  • Smithfield Carnitas 32 oz, $5.99 (reg $7.99)
  • Smithfield Chops 24oz, $5.99 (reg $7.99)
  • Smithfield Steakhouse Mushroom Pork Fillet 27.2 oz, $6.99 (reg $8.99)
  • Smithfield Pork Sirloin 23 oz, $3.99 (reg $5.99)
  • Smithfield Pork Tenderloin 18.4 oz, $5.99 (reg $7.99)

Each item comes with easy cooking instructions. Follow them and enjoy a delicious meal in 30 minutes or less. I personally use them as a short cut in my favorite meals and recipes. The fact that the meat is already marinated means that I don’t need a bunch of extra ingredients AND I don’t have to take the time to marinate the meat myself. The meat is ready to go right from the package. The convenience makes these a perfect choice for a busy weeknight.
