Cumin Spiced pork Tenderloin Potato Salad 004
It’s been one hot and humid day around here today, about 93 degrees and as I said very humid. Went to the bank, post office, and Kroger early and got back home. If you have any breathing problems today is not the day to be out. For dinner tonight a couple of new ones, I prepared Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin w/ Sliced Carrots and Cheddar and Bacon Potato Salad.

 

 

 

 

 

Cumin Spiced pork Tenderloin Potato Salad 001

Look at that Beautiful Crust!

I found the Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin recipe a while back on-line, several variations of it. To prepare it I’ll need; 1/2 tbsp Roasted Cumin, 1 tsp Garlic Powder, 1 tsp Chili Powder, 1 teaspoon Sea Salt, 1/2 teaspoon Hungarian Paprika, 2 teaspoons Dried Oregano, and 1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper. To prepare it preheat oven to 350°. Combine all the ingredients; rub it all over the pork. Let stand 20 minutes. Heat the oil in a Cast Iron Skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork to pan; cook 4 minutes, browning on all sides. Bake at 350° for 15 minutes or until a thermometer registers 155° (slightly pink), turning after 7 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Then get ready to enjoy one delicious and moist Pork Tenderloin! Fantastic combo of Spices, which made one incredible Crust on the Pork.

 

 

 

 

For one side dish I prepared another new one, Cheddar and Bacon Potato Salad. This one comes from the Simply Potatoes website (http://www.simplypotatoes.com/) To make this one I’ll need; 1 package Simply Potatoes® Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes, 1/2 cup Kraft Reduced Fat Chipotle Mayonnaise, 1/2 cup Daisy Light Sour Cream, 2 tablespoons chopped fresh Chives, 1/4 teaspoon Garlic Salt, Ground Pepper to taste, 1/3 cup Sargento Reduced-Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese, 1/4 cup Oscar Mayer Turkey Bacon Bits, and 1/4 cup finely chopped Red Onion. To prepare it Place 1 package Simply Potatoes® Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes in a medium saucepan with 1/2 cup water. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium-low and cover. Cook about 10 minutes or until potatoes are just tender. Let cool. As the Potatoes are cooling mix mayonnaise, sour cream, chives, garlic salt, and pepper in a large serving bowl until well blended. Then gently stir the Potatoes into dressing until well coated. Sprinkle with Cheese, Bacon, and Red Onion; cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. Stir toppings in just before serving. Another keeper recipe, not a huge Potato Salad fan until now! I also heated up a can of Walmart Brand Sliced Carrots along with a slice of Klosterman Wheat Bread. For dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Bean Ice Cream.
