Review: Tyson Tastemakers’ Tuscan-Style Pork Loin & Pork Belly Pasta Meal Kit

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Tyson Tastemakers. All opinions are entirely my own.

One of my most neglected hobbies is cooking. If you are like me, between working a full-time job, working on a blog, and committing to countless other obligations, it can be hard to spend quality time in the kitchen.

I absolutely love exploring new flavors and recipes, especially because cooking helps me relax. That is why when Tyson Tastemakers reached out to me about reviewing a few of their meal kits, I could not pass up the opportunity.

Meals kits are a great way to try new recipes without buying loads of groceries. Plus, most of the work is already done for you, giving you plenty of time to focus on the fun part – cooking!

Here is a little background on Tyson Tastemakers before we get into my review of the Tuscan-Style Pork Loin and Pork Belly Pasta meal kit.

Tyson Tastemakers Meal Kits are launching for the first time at retail locations in Texas, specifically Dallas, Austin, and San Antonio. Each meal kit includes pre-prepped fresh veggies, all-natural pre-marinated meat, chef-created sauces and seasonings, and an easy-to-follow recipe card. Additionally, you can expect recipes to change with the seasons providing you with fresh new culinary adventures to try and take 45 minutes or less from fridge to table.

What intrigued me about Tyson Tastemakers is how easily accessible the meal kits are. You can pick up a meal kit at your local grocery stores in Texas like Walmart, Kroger, or HEB, and you do not have to worry about a subscription. Win-win!

(Now for those of you not in Texas, Tyson Tastemakers Meal Kits are available in select markets via Amazon Fresh, Amazon Prime Now, and for delivery to your home and at your convenience.)

The first meal kit I explored was the Tuscan-Style Pork Loin and Pork Belly Pasta, inspired by traditional Italian porchetta. This recipe included flavorful pork loin and pork belly seasoned with rosemary, garlic, fennel, and sage. There was also gemelli pasta, zucchini, red onion, and white wine beurre blanc sauce.

Overall, this meal kit was so incredibly easy to prep and make. I basically chopped up the zucchini and red onion and combined everything in a large pot to cook. It was THAT easy, which was great because I could not wait to taste the dish and believe me it was DELICIOUS! I even topped off my plate with some parmesan cheese. Yum!

I believe this dish took about 30 minutes or less to complete and I did not dirty up many dishes, which was great when it came to clean up. Additionally, since I mostly cook for one, I was able to pack up my leftovers to eat for lunch during the week.

If you are in Texas and are interested in trying the Tyson Tastemakers Meal Kits, I definitely recommend it. There are a variety of recipes to choose from, so there is bound to be something for everyone.

Tyson Tastemakers Meal Kits can be found in your grocer’s fresh meat section for suggested retail price of $19.99. Each meal kit contains three servings.

Head over to the Tyson Tastemakers website to find the latest meal kits and a grocer near you.

Stay tuned for my upcoming review of the Citrus Rum Glazed Chicken meal kit!

    I would love to have meal kits like this! I know there’s a bunch of mail delivery services out there, but part of me worries about timing the delivery. I’ll be on the lookout for options near me.

    I wish we had something like Tyson Tastemakers Meal Kits here in South Africa. I’m not a very good cook and this would make my life so much easier

    This recipe sounds so delicious, I love experimenting with pasta and different types of recipes. And it’s even better when you get all the ingredients in one place and all you have to do is cook them.

    I like the pasta a lot. 🙂 It looks so yummy but being a veggie that’s all i can eat from all the things in the dish.

    This seems like a super easy kit. I love minimalist kits where one doesn’t have to do a whole lot. Sometimes they are a life saver.
