The holiday season is in full swing and you may be feeling a little overwhelmed. My to-do list is completely out of control right now. I have meals to plan and cook, cookies to bake, rooms to clean, gifts to buy… and that’s all in addition to my normal to do list that includes meals, laundry and much more. So for the next few weeks, I simplify by choosing weeknight meals that are simple and easy.

To do that, I keep my fridge (and freezer) filled with great-tasting Hatfield products.

Super convenient and absolutely delicious, Hatfield Marinated Pork Tenderloins and Loin Filets make mealtime super simple. You just open the package, cook and serve! Each item is already pre-seasoned and ready to be baked, grilled or cooked anyway you like!

So you can bake them up and serve with maybe some rice and steamed veggies for an easy meal on a busy weeknight. Or get creative and use them in your favorite recipes.. these babies are super versatile. Slice them up and toss with veggies for a delicious stir fry. Maybe cube one up and use for a hearty soup or stew. Throw that baby on the grill and then slice up and serve with slaw for an amazingly simple sandwich.

I have dozens and dozens of different ways to use them for a quick and convenient meal. Today, I wanted to share a recipe that is super easy and requires very few ingredients—my Pork Cowboy Stew.

Just grab a few pantry staples, raid your spice cabinet and pick up a couple of Hatfield Marinated Pork Loin Filets and you are on your way to a hearty and delicious meal. It’s hearty and won’t keep you in the kitchen all night. I personally think that it’s the ideal chilly weather meal.
