Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Mashed Potatoes, Corn on the Cob, and Rustic French Bread

It’s been another hot and humid day outside again. From what I hear it’s going to worse as the week goes on! Went and checked on Dad early this morning at the rehab center and then off to do some grocery shopping. Went to Kroger, they had some items on sale we needed. For dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Mashed Potatoes, Corn on the Cob, and Rustic French Bread.

 

 

 
To prepare my Chops I’ll need; 1 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 400°. Combine all the ingredients; rub it all over the pork chop. Let stand 20 minutes. Heat the oil in a Cast Iron Skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork to pan; cook 3 minutes, browning both sides. From the stove to the oven and bake at 400° for 11 minutes or until a thermometer registers 155° (slightly pink), turning after 5 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Then get ready to enjoy one delicious Pork Chop! Fantastic combo of Spices, which made one incredible Crust on the Chop with the inside being tender and moist! By far my favorite Pork recipe anymore, great on Tenderloins, Roasts, or Chops.

 

 

 
For one side dish I prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes, my favorite Mashed Potatoes by far. Just microwave and serve. Then I boiled some Green Giant Mini Ears of Sweet Corn. As good and sweeter than some fresh Corn on the Cob. I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury Rustic French Bread, my Mom’s favorite so I bake her some whenever I can. Delicious dinner tonight! For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.
