Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans and Potatoes

 

 


I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. Mostly Sunny and 95 degrees outside today. Still suffering through these allergies! And from what the local news said, everyone is fighting them. I did go out for a bit and got the leaf blower out of the shed. I cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. Then trimmed up the vines along the driveway. After that time to get back inside! Anyway for dinner tonight I prepared Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans and Potatoes.

 

 

On my last visit to Meijer I picked up a couple of huge Bone – In Pork Loin Chops and had them in the freezer. I grabbed 1 of the Chops from the freezer and let it thaw overnight in the fridge. Then to prepare my Chop 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 pork to pan; cook 3 minutes, browning both sides. From the stove to the oven and bake at 400° for 20 minutes until the thermometer registered 150° (slightly pink), turning after 5 minutes. Let stand 10 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 a side dish I opened up a can of one of my favorite side dishes, Kroger Brand Golden Hominy. For those that never had or heard of Hominy; Hominy is a food made from kernels of corn which are soaked in an alkali solution of either lime or lye. The corrosive nature of the solution removes the hull and germ of the corn and causes the grain itself to puff up to about twice its normal size. My favorite is the Golden Hominy. If you’ve never tried it do, makes a delicious side dish!

 

 

Then I also heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans and Potatoes. As everything was cooking I also Baked a Loaf of Garlic Loaf Bread. This has become the family’s favorite Baked Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Coke Zero to drink.

 

 

 

 

 


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.
