As a working mom, it is hard coming up with easy dinner ideas. After coming home the last thing I want to do is to spend a lot of time making dinner. However, I want to make sure that my family gets a home cooked meal. 
 
I also want to make sure my family gets a balanced meal, including protein and vegetables.  We like to eat a lot of chicken and pork in our house.  I usually don’t end up making meat on the weekdays because I don’t have time to marinate the meat. On the weekends it’s also hard because we are always so busy.  

Last weekend I went to Walmart in search of an easy dinner solution.  I was excited when I found Smithfield Marinated Pork. I love the fact that the meat is already marinated so I can make a delicious meal without all the time involved.  The fact that the pork is already marinated makes the preparation so much easier. All I have to do is open the package and cook as is or make a dish using the already marinated pork.  

The Smithfield Marinated Pork is perfect for any night because it is so easy to prepare.  Plus it comes in seven flavors so you have an option of what type of marinade you want.  I really like that you can buy one of these and stick it in the oven on a busy night and have a delicious home cooked meal without little or no preparation.

I picked up the Golden Rotisserie flavored pork tenderloin and decided to stuff it with my favorite spinach and artichoke dip.  That way not only would I be serving a home cooked meal with delicious pork, I would also be making sure that my family got some vegetables as well.  

This Spinach and Artichoke Stuffed Pork Tenderloin was delicious and easy to make.  I am a big fan of spinach and artichoke dip and I thought it tasted fantastic stuffed inside the pork.  The Smithfield Marinated Pork tasted great and I loved that I didn’t have to marinate it, which made it great for an easy weeknight dinner.  The great thing is that by stuffing the pork, I made sure we got some vegetables as well.  The spinach and artichoke dip and pork tasted great together and we cannot wait to make this dinner again.  This is a great way to add some variety to pork tenderloin.
 
 
Spinach and Artichoke Stuffed Pork Tenderloin

Spinach and Artichoke Stuffed Pork Tenderloin

Ingredients

  • Smithfield Marinated Pork Tenderloin (I used the Golden Rotisserie flavor)
  • 1/2 can (14 ounces) artichoke hearts, drained and finely chopped
  • 1/2 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Cut a lengthwise slit down the center of the pork tenderloin to within 1/2 inch of the bottom. Make sure not to cut all of the way through. Open the tenderloin so it lies flat.
  3. Cover the tenderloin with plastic wrap and flatten with a mallet or rolling pin to 1/4 inch thickness.
  4. In a medium sized bowl, mix the spinach, artichoke, parmesan cheese, mayonnaise, mozzarella cheese, and garlic powder until combined.
  5. Remove the plastic wrap from the pork and spread the spinach and artichoke mixture on the inside of the pork. Make sure to leave enough room to roll the pork up and so that you can close the pork.
  6. Roll up the pork jelly-roll style, starting with the long side. Secure the pork with toothpicks or tie it with kitchen string.
  7. Bake the pork for 25-30 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 145 degrees. Let stand for about 5 minutes before cutting. Remove the toothpicks or string and slice. Serves 4 people.

Notes

If you have spinach and artichoke dip leftover, put in a small bowl and cook at the same time as the pork and serve with chips.
