Pork is an easy protein to make any day of the week. Our family loves pork tenderloin or a small pork loin served with a few sides for a complete meal. However, half the battle is coming up with new and interesting marinades to flavor the pork. Too often I realize I forgot to marinate the pork tenderloin and start scrambling to come up with a flavorful rub at the last minute. We might have the solution for you as well as a dinner idea that is great for the family or for entertaining over the holidays.

Since they are already marinated and seasoned in the bag, they  can be used to create a quick and easy meals in about 30 minutes or less. I told you that is  perfect any night of the week.

I love the combination of Pork and Sweet Potatoes as well as Pork and Cranberries. This Sweet Potato Pork Biscuits with Cranberry Chutney dinner idea is nice enough to serve for dinner parties. Finger food is a favorite for party guests and kids. I decided to try the Applewood Smoked Bacon Pork Loin Filet for this recipe but make the flavor that best suits your family.

Have you made Chutney before? If not, you can skip this and just buy some chutney or canned cranberry sauce. I would recommend making this ahead of time or early in the day as the flavors need to meld and cool.

Look at all these amazing flavors in one. It just cooks over the stove, no need to touch it.

Cranberry chutney looks like cranberry sauce but it has richer flavors and compliments the pork perfectly.

Biscuits are a great way to eat pork and sweet potato biscuits are even more flavorful. In the time to roast your pork loin, you can have these homemade sweet potato biscuits.

  1. This looks like such an easy and delicious way to enjoy the holidays! I totally agree, it can be so difficult to find new and exciting marinades, or you don’t leave yourself enough time to let it sit. I love the idea of having something premarinated that you can pull out and start cooking with right away!

  2. I’ve never had sweet potato biscuits before, one recipe to try that’s for sure!

  3. Thanks so much, it was so good even the next day for lunch.

  4. I want to have a weekend lunch just so I can serve this elegant dish! All of the flavors sound wonderful together.

  5. We love pork tenderloin so I was excited to see Smithfields ready marinated version! Your Sweet Potato Biscuits and Cranberry Chutney look absolutely delicious too. What a great combination of flavours.

  6. I love Smithfield products and I love pork with cranberry. I could eat many of these, lovely recipe.
