I’ve been busy this summer. Like, I can’t believe how busy I’ve been kind of busy. I have to say, it’s mostly because I forgot exactly how much work a just beginning to toddle about baby can be. In fact, our baby is almost 1 year old now and in full toddle mode. But do you know what’s going to make our days even busier yet? The other kids going back to school.
We better get the whole dinner situation figured out now, because I am not spending more time in the kitchen than I have to this fall.

Because my biggest time-saving tip is to take all the help I can get from the store, I love using Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork that we can simply find in the meat department at Walmart in our quick and easier recipes. Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork provides Real Fresh, Real Flavor, Real Fast… they provide real solutions for real life.
Available in a variety of flavors, Smithfield Marinated is 100% fresh pork and is great simply served alongside macaroni and cheese or mashed potatoes, as we have often. In the past, though, we made Pork Burrito Stuffed Peppers using a Smithfield Slow Smoked Mesquite Flavor Pork Loin Filet. But now with the days of autumn and back to school upon us, I want to be able to set our dinner in the crockpot and forget it. Thus, I picked up a Smithfield Applewood Smoked Bacon Pork Loin Filet for a deliciously fall Crock Pot Sweet Potato and Pork Stew.
Our Crock Pot Sweet Potato and Pork Stew combines some of the best flavors of fall. Sweet potatoes, corn, kale, and Smithfield Applewood Smoked Bacon Pork Loin Filet. All mixed together in a stew that tastes like fall, but looks like fall, too.
Now, I’m not sure how this Crock Pot Sweet Potato and Pork Stew could get any easier. Begin by taking the Smithfield Applewood Smoked Bacon Pork Loin Filet and cutting into slices. This just makes it quicker to cook. Put the pork in the crockpot. Dice 2 large sweet potatoes and put them in the crockpot, too.
Add 3 cups of chicken broth, then set on high and let cook for 3 hours or so. Or, go completely set it and forget it and cook on low for 5-6 hours.
With only an hour or two left in cooking time, shred the pork slices and add back to the crockpot. Then, add 10oz of frozen corn. Roughly chop 2 cups of kale and stir that in, as well.
Continue cooking on low until everything is tender.
Now doesn’t that look like fall? It is my favorite season. And Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork is a favorite trick for delicious, hassle-free meals in no time!
