There was a time when I couldn’t imagine planning meals for the week. I liked the flexibility of planning on the fly, and craved the variety it afforded me. Of course, that led to us ordering takeout more often than I cared to admit — mostly because I would be cooking for work all day, and not actually want to cook dinner.

That was when I worked at home. When I began in an office again, I quickly realized how important being organized was to having easy weeknight dinners. By planning our meals for the week, and keeping track of them on a calendar in the kitchen, it ensures that I don’t often get home wondering what’s for dinner — or worse, give into the temptation of take out.

Perhaps best of all, planning meals means that great meals happen more often than not — because I am prepared.

And what takes a meal from good to great? Lots of things: a well-thought out menu, for instance, can pair a flavorful black bean dish with tacos for a satisfying dinner. And a really good sauce that elevates the flavors can do that too. The Garlicky Roasted Red Pepper Basil Sauce in this recipe does that for marinated ALWAYS TENDER® pork roasts from Hormel Foods, for sure.

This zesty, but slightly sweet, sauce is so easy to make and has so much bright flavor to lend to this pork roast. It’s also delicious with chicken.

The pork roasts are good. But they are even better with this sauce drizzled on.


The convenient Hormel ALWAYS TENDER® pork roasts go from fridge to oven with so little fuss, which makes weeknight dinners a breeze. Although it needs to cook for about an hour, it’s so hands off that you can use that hour to do so many other things — from reading with your kids to laundry to reading that novel you really want to finish.

As for the sauce? It takes just a few minutes to whirl together in the food processor and adds a burst of fresh flavor to the roast. It’s also delicious drizzled over boiled or roasted potatoes, rice and more.

My husband is the meal planner of the family - without him we'd be eating TV dinners half the time! Love this recipe and will add it to our list!

I am loving the sound of that sauce! So fresh and sounds like it would be a standout on pork loin.

I always get into these moods where I'm like "YES, I will menu plan and it will be awesome and I will know exactly what we are going to be having for dinner every night and there will be no need for take out" and then life gets in my way and we end up not wanting what's on the menu for the evening or we're too tired to cook. But we're trying to get better! Perhaps this pork roast will light a fire under us to keep on track!

I've always been a meal planner. Almost to a fault. Now I'm a little more lax, and feel much more relaxed. Your pork roast looks delicious. Love that sauce!
