When I was a kid, my mom didn’t often branch out from her usual repertoire of recipes. I mean, I don’t blame her. I was one picky child.

And my brother? Well, he was fluent in Whine, if you know what I’m saying.

So. We stuck to the basics that everyone knew and loved and that was alright by us.

As I’ve grown up I’ve gotten a lot more adventurous and I’ve tried really hard to bring my kids along for the ride. I mean, sure. I’d like to eat tacos every night of the week too, guys, but maybe we could have a vegetable just once this week?

The easiest way for me to accomplish adding new foods to our table with minimal complaints is to incorporate something they already love with something new.

When they ask what’s for dinner, I play it down. “Oh, this? This is that pork that you really liked from a few weeks ago. I just added a few things so we wouldn’t get bored eating the same thing again.”

It works surprisingly well.

If I get excited and tell them how they’re going to love the new meal? They will hate the new meal because they are kids and kids are out to ruin their parents lives. Fact. ๐Ÿ˜‰

My kids are used to me getting boxes full of Smithfield marinated pork in the mail. Smithfield has been a client of mine for a couple years now and I love coming up with new recipes for you that feature their fresh pork. The kids love it too, which makes their pork sirloin a perfect way to introduce something a little different to my kids – fried cabbage!

Oh yes. I’m got all vegetable-y on my kids and you know what? They didn’t even mind.

This makes a great meal and it’s so filling! I used the Smithfield Roasted Garlic & Herb Marinated Fresh Pork Sirloin for this recipe. Chop it up into bite sized pieces and it cooks so quickly. Stir in some cabbage and onions and you have a classic dinner recipe with a bit of a twist. The pork is seasoned with garlic and herbs so that step is done for you. Perfection!

This fried cabbage recipe is perfect for busy weeknights!
