Hormel’s latest marinated product was the brainchild of a 24-year veteran of the company.

Feng Walkup, an international account manager, came up with the Sweet Garlic Ginger Pork Loin, which is now available at select retailers nationwide.

Walkup has been preparing and enjoying sweet garlic ginger pork for years, as the recipe has long been a family staple, according to Hormel.

She recently prepared the dish for an office potluck, and the resulting response from her co-workers brought more than just praise.

They loved it so much, they asked her to help bring the flavor to life for the company’s marinated-meats product line.

The Mongolian-inspired flavor tastes as good fresh out of the oven as it does on the grill or in a slow cooker, according to Hormel.

Sweet Garlic Ginger Pork Loin is available for a suggested retail price of $8.99 for a 1.5-pound pork loin filet.

“Asian cuisine resonates with consumers across generations,” said Hailey Tranchitella, Hormel associate brand manager for the company’s Retail segment. “Expanding our Asian flavor offerings will allow us to service our current loyal consumers and begin to penetrate new households as well.”
