Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin w/ Roasted Red Potatoes and Cut Green Beans


Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin 001


A wee bit colder this morning, about 26 degrees and a wind chill to boot! Had a light Breakfast and then an early morning workout. I went to Meijer and Kroger then. About a mile from the house on my way to Meijer, they had a light snow on the ground. And the further away from the house the more snow! Had to make a Meijer/ Jennie – O Turkey run. Meijer has the best selection of Jennie – O Turkey in our area. Stocked up a couple of rolls of the Ground Turkey Breakfast Sausage, some Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, and Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast. Thank you Meijer and Jennie – O Turkey! For dinner tonight it’s a Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin w/ Roasted Red Potatoes and Cut Green Beans.




Cumin Spiced Pork Roast Tri Color Pot 006

I had come across the Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin recipe a while back on-line, and use it all the time now. I purchased the pork Tenderloin from Kroger, Simple Truth Natural Pork Tenderloin. To prepare it I’ll need; 1 pork Tenderloin, 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 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 Pork Tenderloin! Fantastic combo of Spices, which made one incredible Crust on the Pork with the inside being tender and moist! This is my favorite Pork recipe!




Roasted Red Potatoes

For one side I prepared Roasted Red Potatoes. I put these in the oven as I started Roasting my Pork Tenderloin, same temperature of 400 degrees. Then to prepare them I needed; 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1 tablespoon minced fresh or Dried Rosemary, 1 tablespoon Dried Thyme, 1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt, and 1/4 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper. I start by heating up a Cast Iron Skillet on medium heat and as that’s heating up quartered the Red Potatoes. Combined all ingredients in a large bowl and added the Potatoes. Toss to coat Potatoes and add them to to the Skillet. Fry them about 4-5 minutes and transfer the Skillet to the oven, for about 15 – 20 minutes until they are fork tender. This is why I love using Cast Iron Skillets, from the stove to the oven, and easy clean up. I also heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans and baked a Sour Dough Mini Boule.

The Saboscrivner

The Saboscrivner is a librarian who writes about food in Orlando, Florida, and beyond. I was inspired by Chew, a brilliant, bizarre, food-obsessed comic book series about characters with food-related super powers. Creators John Layman and Rob Guillory introduced their saboscrivner in Chew #3 with a description: "[A saboscrivner] can write about food so accurately, so vividly and with such precision – people get the actual sensation of taste when reading about the meals [he] writes about."
