Today’s Menu: Peppercorn and Herb Crusted Pork Tenderloin w/ Savory Herb Potatoes and Seasoned Pinto Beans

 

 

 

For Breakfast on this morning i toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. I topped it with a Poached Egg and I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Yesterday morning was cold and this morning its even colder! It’s a minus 8 degrees. It was sunny out today but only a high of 18 degrees. So with the cold weather outside I stayed indoors. Today was computer cleanup day. Cleaned off the desk and did some rearranging. Then I did some computer cleaning and maintenance. Ran all the scans, deleted old files, and up dated some passwords. Then I unhooked everything and cleaned the inside of the processor. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Peppercorn and Herb Crusted Pork Tenderloin w/ Savory Herb Potatoes and Seasoned Pinto Beans.

 

 

 

I purchased the Pork Tenderloin at our local Kroger up the road. It’s a Smithfield Pork Tenderloin. Usually I use my Cumin Spiced Rub when having a Pork Tenderloin so I thought I would give the Peppercorn and Herb Rub a try. To prepare it I’ll need; the Pork Tenderloin, Extra Light Olive Oil, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt, McCormick Grinder Peppercorn Medley, Dried Parsley, and Dried Thyme.

 

 

 

To prepare it; preheat oven to 350°. Combine all the ingredients, except the Peppercorn, in a small bowl. Next rub a light coat of Extra Light Olive Oil all over the Pork. Then rub the combined ingredients on all sides of the Pork. I then got a plate, and got the McCormick Grinder Peppercorn Medley and ground the Peppercorn on to the plate. Took the Pork Tenderloin and rolled in the Peppercorn. I then let the Pork rest for 5 minutes. As that was resting I got a Cast Iron Skillet sprayed it with a light coat of Pam Non-Stick Cooking Spray and added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated the Skillet on medium high heat. Add the Pork to the skillet and cook 2 minutes per side. From the stove to the oven; Bake at 400° for 10 minutes or until a thermometer registers 155° (slightly pink), turning after 7 minutes. Remove from the skillet into a platter or dish and let stand 10 minutes before slicing. That’s one excellent Pork Tenderloin! Moist, juicy, and love the seasoning. The Peppercorn Medley gives it great flavor and a nice crust. Served it with Horseradish Sauce and baked a loaf of La Brea Multi Grain Bread.

 


For one side I prepared Potatoes; the Little Potato Company Savory Herb Potatoes. I have these quite often and really enjoy them. The Potatoes come in a microwavable tray. Just pop the tray in the microwave for five minutes and mix in the seasoning pack and you have a nutritious and tasty Potato Dish. These are definitely a good item to have in the pantry! So easy to prepare and no clean up.

 

 

 

 

For another side I heated up a can of Margaret Holmes Seasoned Pinto Beans. I purchased a few of cans of this at a nearby Walmart, they carry a good selection of a lot of the Margaret Holmes Products. To prepare it just empty the contents into a medium saucepan. Cover it and bring it to a boil. Stir and reduce the heat to slow simmer and serve when ready. And I have delicious side dish! I love Beans of all kinds and these Seasoned Pinto Beans are delicious, love the Seasoning. I also baked a loaf of La Brea Multi Grain Bread. So easy to prepare and no clean up. For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Divine Triple Chocolate Ice Cream Bar.
