Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Fresh Green Beans and Sweet Corn on the Cob

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea to start this morning. 81 degrees and partly cloudy out today. After Tea I took Mom out to Ross, Ohio to pick up fresh Corn, Green Beans, and Tomatoes. On the way home she wanted to stop by Jungle Jim’s Market also. Back home I took my car up and had it washed and then I vacuumed the inside out. Back home just did a few small chores around the house. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Fresh Green Beans and Sweet Corn on the Cob.

 

 

I had picked some Pork Chops a while back at Jungle Jim’s earlier. To 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 the 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 160°, turning after 5 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Fantastic combo of Spices, which makes one incredible tasty Crust on the Chop with the inside being tender and moist! Love this seasoning on Pork!

 

I also prepared a Quart Jar of the Canned Green Beans. I cooked them with a piece of Fatback Pork in a kettle. Love these Canned Green Beans, they are so fresh tasting! I could have Green Beans every day, love them!

 

 

 

 

For another side I boiled a couple of Ears of Sweet Corn. It came out so good. I seasoned it with Morton’s Light Salt and Blue Bonnet Light Butter. Ross, Ohio ihas the best Sweet Corn grown anywhere! Quite a Meal tonight! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with a dab of 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.

 

 

 

 

 

Green Beans Health Benefits………….
You should learn to love green beans with all of your heart – their powerful combination of fiber, folate, and the minerals magnesium and potassium make green beans a super food for cardiovascular health. Green beans are a healthy addition to almost any eating plan because they are a low-calorie, low-fat source of energy.
