Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and French Bread

 

 

So to off my morning off I had a bowl of Kroger Brand Bran Flakes also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast went to the local Kroger for a couple of items for Mom and stopped at McDonald’s to pick Breakfast for Mom. Did some laundry for and cleaned up a bit inside and outside. After Lunch I went up to see Dad for the rest of the afternoon. So for Dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and French Bread.

 

 

 

On my last visit to Meijer I picked up a large Center Cut Pork Chops from the Meijer Meat Department. I really love the Meijer selection and quality of all their meats, and all their products and produce.

 

 

 

 

 

So to prepare my Chops I’ll need; The Cumin Spiced Rub which consists of; 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. Start by heating the Extra Virgin Olive oil in a Cast Iron Skillet over medium-high heat. Add Chops to pan; cook 3 minutes, browning both sides. From the stove to the oven and bake at 400° for 15 minutes until the thermometer registered 150° (slightly pink), turning after 5 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing. Fantastic combo of Spices, which makes one incredible Crust on the Chop with the inside being tender and moist! Love this seasoning on Pork.

 

For one side I prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better.

 

 

 

 

 

For a second side I made a kettle of the fresh Green Beans we left. I love Beans, especially Fresh Green Beans! Then I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pork Facts….
One serving of pork is 3 ounces, or about the size of a deck of cards, according to the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. An image of the portion size is important because a thick pork chop can be twice that size and without realizing it you can eat double the calories. You’ll get 137 calories and 4 grams of fat from a 3-ounce pork chop. Pork is similar to chicken, with 3 ounces of chicken breast containing 140 calories and 3 grams of fat. A pork chop has 65 milligrams of cholesterol, compared to 72 grams in chicken breast, but they both have just 1 gram of saturated fat.
