EASY Recipe: SouthWestern Pulled Pork & Roasted Potato Medallions (Courtesy of Target)


Several months ago, I went to an event that was sponsored by Target showcasing various products by Giada De Laurentiis in addition to Archer Farms items, sold exclusively by Target.

At the event, I found numerous products that I would buy for my family and for any get-together in my home.  I tried out some really good foods such as Bacon Cheeseburger Pizzas, Apple Streusel Pancakes and Linguine with Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Olives & Lemon but the one food that stood out to me were the SouthWestern Pulled Pork & Roasted Potato Medallions.

Oh Em Gee!

If you’re a meat and potato lover, you will go crazy over these! They’re delicious and so easy to make. Your guests would gobble them up so fast, you’d have to make more before you even know it!
