Even Florida is not immune to the cooler weather that is sweeping the nation. Tomorrow we only have highs in the upper 50’s, which I know for most of you is not cold, but for a native Floridian, it is pretty chilly. When weather turns cooler, I start turning to my comfort food favorites from my childhood to keep the whole family warm and toasty inside and out. I stopped in my local Walmart the other day to pick up some Smithfield All Natural Boneless Pork Chops so that I could recreate a wholesome dish my mom used to make when I was growing up, simmered BBQ pork chops.
There are so many things to like about the Smithfield Pork Products. For one, they are all natural US born and bred animals, and their products meet the USDA Process Verified Standard. They don’t add hormones, steroids or use artificial ingredients in their Pork Products either. Plus, they are affordable, unlike many other all-natural products on the market. They always have great cuts, color and above all else, flavor. Plus, it is nice to know I am supporting a company that is supporting the community. Smithfield helps create local jobs, supports national and local causes, all while partnering with and supporting regional farm families. How awesome is that?
Let’s just say, that when I have four boys, I had no idea how much food they would eventually consume. Let’s just say that I had to buy nearly 3 pounds of Smithfield All Natural Boneless Pork Chops, and there still weren’t any leftovers. These simmered BBQ pork chops are super easy to make, so delicious even the pickiest eaters will gobble them up and they bring back fond memories of my childhood.
