Ironically, I have an abundance of thyme in my garden at the moment and very little time to do anything with it.
Story of my life.
However, after receiving some coupons from the nice folks at Hormel® to try their Always Tender® or Natural Choice® pork, a light bulb went off in my head.
Bling! I’ll use my thyme and save time at the same time! It’s perfect!
I just love it when the sun, the moon and the stars all align and the world makes sense.
Don’t you? Doesn’t happen all too often, so when it does I jump on it!
After picking up a Hormel® Pork Center Cut Loin Fillet, I pulled together some of my favorite ingredients and dinner was made in a flash!
No specific measurements or amounts are needed for this quick and easy dish, just a dash of this and a splash of that. However, I decided to give you the measurements of what I used.
- 1 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
- Juice of one lemon
- 2 Tbsp coarse brown mustard
- 3 Tbsp dried rosemary
- 1 clove garlic (minced)
- 1 Tbsp Paprika
- 1 bunch fresh thyme
- Salt & Pepper to taste
After dicing and slicing the ingredients just throw it all into a zip lock bag along with your pork and give it a good squeeze until you see that all sides of the pork are nicely coated.
Could it get any easier? I don’t think so. Could be any faster? I think not.
Time is definitely on my side tonight!
Let your pork and ingredients mingle a bit in the bag. I was short on time so mine only got to mingle as long as it took to warm up the grill, but overnight in the fridge would be even better yet.
Grill your pork until it’s nice and crispy on the outside and a meat thermometer reads 160ºF in the thickest part of meat.
Don’t forget to let the pork rest a spell to lock in all of the yummy juices.
Slice and serve with a side that tickles your tummy.
See? Dinner was literally on the table in… No. Time. Flat.
