When you can make tasty meals like my Sticky Honey Ginger Pork, why would you want to bother with expensive takeout?

The cost to feed my family takeout is at least $30… and that doesn’t include a tip! And really, $30 is a very low estimate. It’s typically more like $40 – $45 for just one takeout meal for my family of four. I can NOT justify paying that kind of money for a lukewarm meal that tastes “just OK” unless I really have to!

I mean, I get the convenience and the need to grab a meal in a pinch from time to time. But, when I can make a meal that tastes so much better for a fraction of the price, I am definitely cooking at home.

Home cooked meals can still be easy and convenient, you just have to choose the right recipes and the right ingredients. That’s where Smithfield Fresh Marinated Pork products come in handy!

With Smithfield Marinated Pork, you have an easy-to-use ingredient that’s great for all kinds of tasty dishes. All of their products are perfectly seasoned eliminating the need for a bunch of spices and seasoning. And because they are slow marinated, you won’t have to wait for that great flavor. Simply open the package and bake, grill or use in any of your favorite recipes. Now that’s what I call convenient!

And speaking of convenient, how about a tasty meal in less than 30 minutes?

My Sticky Honey Ginger Pork is super quick and packed with incredible flavor. You can have a delicious meal on the table in less time than you’d wait in line for takeout. And… the cost is less than half of that lukewarm takeout/delivery meal.

Grab a package and bake for a meal with almost no effort. Or pick up a few additional ingredients and try my Sticky Honey Ginger Pork.
