Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Jalapeno Cheddar Fried Potatoes and Corn on the Cob (Mini Ears)

 

 

Cumin Spiced Pork Chop Jalp Potatoes 005
It’s been another one of those beautiful early Fall Days here today, 40’s in the morning and a high of 70 degrees with a whole lot of sunshine! Got the car washed and then had to stop at the store and pick up a few items. Came back home and got the cart out and helped Mom with some yard work. A perfect day for it! For dinner tonight it’s Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Jalapeno Cheddar Fried Potatoes, Corn on the Cob (Mini Ears), and Baked Crescent Rounds.

 

 

 
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.

 

 

 

 

Jalapeno Cheddar Fried Potatoes
For a side dish for the Sliders I prepared Jalapeno Cheddar Fried Potatoes. I had come across this a while back in an issue of Cuisine at Home Magazine. Made some changes from the original recipe. I used Simply Potatoes Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes, Canola Oil instead of Peanut Oil, Scallions, 1 Jalapeno (sliced), Sea Salt and Ground Pepper, Sargento Reduced Fat Mexican Style Shredded Cheese, and I also added some diced Red Onion. To prepare it; Add the Canola Oil to a Cast Iron Skillet and heat on medium. Prepare the Diced potatoes according to the package instructions. About midway through the cooking process add the Diced Red Onion and continue cooking. Then Scallions and Jalapeno; saute 2 more minutes, then season with Sea Salt & Pepper. Off the heat sprinkle with the Sargento Reduced Fat Mexican Style Shredded Cheese. And another keeper Potato Dish! This has turned out to be one of my favorite Potato Side Dishes. 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 some Pillsbury Crescent Rounds; topped them with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter and Rubbed sage. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.
