I’m all about firing up the grill as often as possible over summer. We spend as much time outside as we can, even if it’s just cooking, is always time well spent.
We have baby birds in the eaves behind our house right now, the leaves are back on the trees, and everything is green (well except the back lawn, apparently the sprinkler system needs to be fixed this week). I love the sound of lawnmowers firing up on the weekends, followed by the smell of freshly cut grass.
If you are tired of throwing the same thing on the grill and want to get creative with your summer menu, we have just the recipe. This recipe for marinated pork skewers with a spicy Asian-inspired noodle salad is delicious.
The best part is that buying the pre-marinated and seasoned Smithfield Roasted Garlic & Herb Fresh Pork Loin Filet means this recipe takes less than 30-minutes to make.
Marinated pork kebab with spicy Asian noodle salad
- 1 Smithfield Roasted Garlic & Herb Fresh Pork Loin Filet - makes approx 10 medium-sized kebabs
- 1 14oz pkg Lo Mein noodles
- 1 red pepper - cut into small strips
- 1 carrot - cut into matchsticks
- 1 cup Napa cabbage - shredded
- 4 green onions - white and green chopped and separated
- 1/2 tbs freshly grated ginger
- 1 tbs sesame seed oil
- 1/3 cup peanut butter
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1/2 cup hot water
- 1 tbs rice vinegar
- 1 tbs sambal
- 2 tbs fresh Thai basil
- The first thing you want to do is get a large pot of water going on the stove (for the noodles) and fire up the grill outside. While the grill is preheating, prepare your kebabs.
- Soak your wood skewers in water for 15-20 minutes, this helps to prevent them from burning on the grill.
- While the skewers are soaking, slice the Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork into thin pieces, and then cut those in half again. Put pieces of pork onto the skewers and grill until cooked through, turning midway through cooking.
- As soon as the water on the stove is boiling, add the Lo Mein noodles and cook according to the package directions. Rinse with water once cooked to stop them from cooking any further and becoming sticky.
- In a skillet on the stove add the sesame oil, heat, and then add the whites of the onions. Saute until translucent, and then add the ginger. Cook for another minute or so, then add all of your other sauce ingredients - hot water, peanut butter, soy cause, rice vinegar, and sambal. Stir until heated through.
- Pour over the noodles and toss in the fresh Napa cabbage, carrots, red pepper, and Thai basil.
- Serve with the pork skewers.

I’ve always left it up to the man to grill. Always! It was my dad, then my ex-husband, and then Mike. But, it was he who taught me how to use the grill. He walked me through it so that even when he’s not here I can still create delicious recipes outdoors for the kids.
About Walmart grocery pick-up
Have you tried Walmart’s Grocery Pick-Up? I tried it for the first time recently and it’s so easy to navigate! One thing that I loved is the money I saved because there were no impulse purchases. I ordered online the night before and they sent me a text message when my order was ready the following morning. I sat in my air-conditioned car and waited while my groceries were brought to my car and loaded into my grocery bags (that I had in the trunk). This is perfect if you aren’t feeling well, have sleeping kids, or don’t want to drag your kids into the grocery store. If you download the app and check-in, they even track when your vehicle arrives in the parking lot so there’s no need to call the number, someone just comes out with the groceries.
