This recipe takes almost exactly 30 minutes to make, from start to finish. If you’re strapped on time, you can dice up the meat for even faster cooking. You can use leftover rice that’s already been prepared, or a quick rice blend that cooks up in just a few short minutes. I served mine with a wild and brown rice blend with quinoa, but choose whatever works best for you! What I love is that this recipe used just a few simple ingredients to create a powerhouse of delicious flavors. Starting with the Smithfield Steakhouse Mushroom Marinated Fresh Pork Loin Filet, then roasted with seasoned green beans and served with sautéed mushrooms. This is such an earthy and flavorful meal that’s perfect for fall dinnertime.

I like to do a quick sear on most of my roasted meats because it helps to cut some of the cook time as well as hold in some of the flavors that’s marinated and seasoned into the meat. It also helps to sear the meat first when roasting with other items. This recipe just calls for a quick sear on all sides with a bit of grapeseed oil.
The green beans are tossed in a bit of olive oil, fresh lemon zest, plenty of garlic, sea salt, pepper and red pepper flakes. Place them all on the pan with the seared pork loin filet in the center and cook at a high heat for 15 minutes. Remember that the pork is ready when it reaches 145 degrees.
While the pork and green beans roast, we bring together all of that mushroom goodness. The mushrooms are sautéed with garlic, olive oil and butter, then reduced in Sherry wine with a bit of brown sugar. After seasoning some fresh chopped parsley is added to the mix.
After removing the pork and green beans from the oven, allow them to sit for a few minutes to cool. Once cool, use heat safe tongs and a sharp serrated knife to cut the pork into even medallion sized pieces.
This is the perfect recipe for mushroom lovers! The pork is tender and juicy and the flavors are all so simple, but they come together beautifully! You don’t even have to wait for a busy night to create this meal, it’s perfect for leisure-filled weekends and then you can spend your time relaxing!
