Lemon Pepper Pork and Orzo

When I think of quick and easy Weekday Supper Meals, I immediately think of thinly sliced lemon pepper pork medallions.  I love them because I can whip up a delicious meal for my family in minutes.  Two minutes on each side and BOOM, you are done.  When I heard about the New Sauté Express® Sauté Starter with seasoned butter and olive oil, I couldn’t wait to try it on thinly sliced pork.  Easy Skillet Lemon Pepper Pork and Orzo came to mind.  Let me start by telling you that my family is obsessed with my Pork Picatta Sauce.  It really is delish but like most sauces, it takes time.  It certainly is not a dish that I prepare on a night that we have to get the boys out the door to football practice.  I was curious to see their reaction to this new quick and easy pork recipe.

    I love pork but my husband could take it or leave it. This is one dish I am sure he would like very much. The lemon pepper flavor takes me back to my childhood. My parents would use lemon pepper seasoning on lots of things. So great it is one of the flavors of this new Saute Express line.

    This is exactly the type of meal that I love for #WeekdaySupper! My oldest has practice and/or meets right after school and doesn’t get done until supper time (or waaaay later if it’s a meet), so being able to walk in the door and make a super-quick meal is very ideal. This sounds delicious…testing it out this week! :)

    I am loving all the dishes this week. Quick and easy weeknight meals that can be made in less than 30 minutes. I love the flavor varieties and how you can make all kinds of dishes with this product. Need to go buy me some pork so I can make this dish this week.
