Lemon Pepper Pork and Potatoes {Giveaway}

Lemon Pepper Pork and Potatoes 001

This is my third recipe in the Weeknight Wins by Sauté Express® Sauté Starter Blogger Challenge from Land O’Lakes. In case you missed my first two, you can check them out HERE and HERE. Four other food bloggers and I have been posting about super easy weeknight meals. Don’t forget to go to our PINTEREST BOARD and pin your favorite recipe each week. We have fun prize packs every week too!

During this challenge, one of my missions was to let the Sauté Express® Sauté Starter shine all by itself.

I wanted to show that there is a product out there that makes cooking a breeze either for the busy family or for those new at cooking who are a bit afraid of coming up with their own flavors.

Lemon Pepper Pork and Potatoes 002

Week number three is all about One-Pan Wonders. One-pan dinners are great because they are usually quick and there is minimal clean-up, which my husband loves because I cook and he cleans! Sweet, huh?

With the use of the Sauté Express® Sauté Starters, my One-Pan Wonder is a winner.

Oh and you know what? You can have this dinner on the table for your family in under 30 minutes. You’re welcome.

See the little squares in my pan? Packed in those little squares is butter, olive oil and loads and loads of spices and flavorings. Pop a couple in your pan and you never have to think what flavorings to pair together.

Lemon Pepper Pork and Potatoes 004

This dinner is not only EXTREMELY easy to make, but it tastes like I added all the spices and flavorings myself. When my husband tasted it, he said, “What else did you add to it?” I told him nothing except the Sauté Express® Sauté Starter. He honestly didn’t believe me. He swore I added lemon and garlic.

Without the little magic squares, this dinner would be completely and utterly boring with no life at all.

I will say this dish had a bit of kick to it, which is good because my family loves a li’l spice.
