These BBQ Grilled Pork & Vegetable Rice Bowls are the perfect summer dinner! Cubed pork tenderloin, broccoli, and tomato with BBQ sauce and cheddar cheese, served over brown rice - you need this recipe!




This is my first summer with three children and I have one word to sum it up: exhausted!

I would definitely add fun to that description, but it's mainly exhausted! Silas and Wesley spend the mornings out back riding bikes, using sidewalk chalk or bubbles before the heat really kicks in. Then they proceed to bring all that boy energy in the house, which involves running around, building forts, and eating snacks. Lots and lots and lots of snacks.





Add in 9 month old Reuben, who is perpetually teething and getting himself into everything, and you can see why I'm super tired this summer! We've had an awesome summer so far with various activities, day trips, and visiting family. I find myself barely able to think ahead to dinner most days! 

Smaller, quick meals are better for us during these busy summer days. We fire up the grill several times each week because it's just so easy and of course the flavor is amazing! These BBQ Grilled Pork & Vegetable Rice Bowls are the perfect summer weeknight meal!
