Today’s Menu: Dry Rubbed Santa Maria Boneless Petite Pork Shoulder Roast – Pulled Pork Sandwiches w/ Savory Herb Potatoes and Sliced Carrots

 

 

 

To start the morning off I fried up some Queen City Sausage Goetta Patties. They come fresh packaged and 12 Patties to the package. I had never had these before so I thought I would give them a try. Goetta is tough to keep in a patty form if you’re making them from fresh. But these come already cut into Patties, much easier to fry up. They fried up perfect and seasoned just right. I froze up the unused Patties. To go with the Goetta Patties I Scrambled a couple of Eggs and toasted a couple slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Went out to grab the morning paper and it was 47 degrees. It was mostly sunny and a high of 67 degrees, clouds moved in late. Cool weather for this time of year around here. Got the cart out of the shed and caught up on some yard work most of the day. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Dry Rubbed Santa Maria Boneless Petite Pork Shoulder Roast – Pulled Pork Sandwiches w/ Savory Herb Potatoes and Sliced Carrots.

 

I had picked up a Swift Premium Dry Rubbed Santa Maria Boneless Petite Pork Shoulder Roast at Kroger the other day and preparing it for Dinner tonight. The Dry Rubbed Santa Maria Boneless Petite Pork Shoulder Roast comes packaged already seasoned. You can roast this in the oven or use the Slow Cooker as like I am today. I got my Crock Pot out and put a plastic liner in it and sprayed that with Pam Cooking Spray.First remove the Shoulder Roast from the package and place in slow cooker with 1 inch of water in bottom. Put the lid on and cook on high for 4 hours or until fork tender. And as always a special “Thank You” goes out to whomever invented the Crock Pot Liners! You’ve made cooking so much easier! Cover and cook on high for 4 hours.

 

Removed the Roast from slow cooker and allow to cool slightly. Then shred meat with two forks for my Sandwiches. The Roast came out mouth-watering delicious! Tender, moist, and well seasoned. So tender it broke apart while taking it out of the Slow Cooker. I’m serving it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hamburger Bun and topped with some Jack Daniels Honey Smokehouse BBQ Sauce. This is a Sandwich! I’ll use the leftovers for Sandwiches for Lunch the next few days.

 

 

 

A favorite I always pick up at Meijer are 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.

 

 

 

Then I also heated up a can of Del Monte Sliced Carrots. These are so much easier to prepare than boiling fresh Carrots, and they taste just as fresh. For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Divine Triple Chocolate Ice Cream Bar.

Today’s Menu: Dry Rubbed Santa Maria Boneless Petite Pork Shoulder Roast w/ Rustic Smashed Potatoes with Sea Salt

 

 

 

 

 

To start this sunny Monday morning off I prepared a Poached Egg, served it with a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, and my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. It’s sunny out but 31 degrees out there this morning! One cool May morning! It was a bit warmer out today, a high in the 60’s. A good day to get catch up on some yard work and cleaning. The last few days we’ve had a lot of rain with local flooding. Had everything done and took a ride around the neighborhood in the cart. For Dinner tonight its a Dry Rubbed Santa Maria Boneless Petite Pork Shoulder Roast w/ Rustic Smashed Potatoes with Sea Salt.

 

 

 

I had picked up a Swift Premium Dry Rubbed Santa Maria Boneless Petite Pork Shoulder Roast at Kroger yesterday and preparing it for Dinner tonight. The Dry Rubbed Santa Maria Boneless Petite Pork Shoulder Roast comes packaged already seasoned. You can roast this in the oven or use the Slow Cooker as I am today. I got my Crock Pot out and put a plastic liner in it and sprayed that with Pam Cooking Spray.First remove the Shoulder Roast from the package and place in slow cooker with 1 inch of water in bottom. Put the lid on and cook on high for 4 hours or until fork tender.

 

 

Remove the Roast from slow cooker and allow to cool slightly. Then shred meat with two forks for Sandwiches or you can slice it, I’m having it sliced. The Roast came out mouth-watering delicious! Tender, moist, and well seasoned. So tender it broke apart while taking it out of the Slow Cooker. I’ll use the leftovers for Sandwiches.

 

 

 

 

 

For a side dish I prepared Rustic Smashed Potatoes with Sea Salt. I’ve made Smashed Potatoes before and thought I would give this recipe a try. I came across this recipe on the Swift Premium site while reading about the Shoulder Roast I’m having tonight. I’ll need the following to prepare the dish; Yukon gold new potatoes, Blue Bonnet Light Butter (melted), Extra Light Olive Oil, Garlic Powder, and McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley Pepper.

 

 

 

 

To prepare the dish; Cook potatoes in gently boiling heavily salted water for 12 to 15 minutes or just until tender. Drain well and cool slightly. Transfer the potatoes to a large baking sheet lined with foil. Gently press each potato with the bottom of a cup until slightly crushed and flattened, but not falling apart. Next preheat oven broiler. Combine the butter, oil and garlic powder. Brush half of the butter mixture on potatoes. Broil 3 inches from heat for 3 to 5 minutes or until golden and slightly crisp. Carefully turn potatoes over using a wide spatula. Brush with butter mixture; lightly sprinkle with salt and pepper. Broil for another 2 to 4 minutes or until golden. Let cool and serve! Excellent Smashed Potato Recipe! If you love Potato Dishes as much as I do, you’ll like this recipe. The full recipe and web link is below. For Dessert later a jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Boneless Pork Loin Roast w/ Mashed Potatoes, Cut Italian Beans, and Baked Italian Loaf Bread

 
Started the day off with a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast finished up somCumin Spiced Boneless Pork Loin Roast  Mashed Potatoes Cut Ita 001e house cleaning. Then outside we have a huge vine 1/2 the length of our driveway that I had to trim up. It started growing out into the driveway. Cloudy and temperatures in the 60’s with rain in the late afternoon. I had just read an article on we’ve had so much rain local farmers can not get their crops out. I couldn’t make it over to see Dad today at the rehab center, I had to wait around the house today for the carpet cleaners. I had the house carpets all cleaned today. Later on for dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Boneless Pork Loin Roast w/ Mashed Potatoes, Cut Italian Beans, and Baked Italian Loaf Bread.

 
I used my favorite Rub for Pork, Cumin Spiced Rub. I had come across the recipe on-line, and use it all the time now. It gives the Pork a fantastic crust and great seasoning. I purchased the Pork Tenderloin Boneless Roast from Kroger Cumin Spiced Boneless Pork Loin Roast  Mashed Potatoes Cut Ita 011yesterday. Using Butcher’s Twine I tied the Roast together. Then to prepare it I’ll need; 1 Pork Tenderloin Roast, 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°. Combined all the ingredients; rub it all over the Pork. Let stand 20 minutes. To Roast it I used a mall Broiler Pan with a Wire Rack in it. Sprayed the Rack with Pam Cooking Spray and put the Pork on it. I baked it for about 70 minutes, until my thermometer registered 145°. Let it stand 10 minutes before slicing. Then sliced into one delicious Pork Tenderloin Roast! Fantastic combo of Spices, which make one incredible Crust on the Pork and the inside being so tender and moist! The only thing I can compare it to would be Prime Rib, delicious!

 

Fried Walleye w Cut Roma Beans and Baked Roasted Fingerling Pota 003
For one side I made some of my favorite Mashed Potatoes, Bob Evans Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve. Just as good as homemade, if not better. Then for another side dish I heated a can of Allens Cut Italian Green Beans, our family’s favorite Bean Side. To prepare them just empty the can into a small sauce pan and simmer until heated. I love the taste of these, just season with a bit of Sea Salt and it’s ready! I could have Beans every day and never get tired of having them.

 

 

Italian Loaf Bread
Finally I baked a loaf of Pillsbury Italian Loaf Bread, family’s favorite baked bread. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Double Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Oven-Roasted (Pork) Boston Butt w/ Mashed Potatoes, Asian Beans, and Baked French Bread

 

 

Oven-Roasted (Pork) Boston Butt w Mashed Potatoes, Asian Beans, 009
Started off with a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and some Fried Bologna, Breakfast Sandwich. Mom and Dad went on to Church this morning and I did a few things around the house this morning and a couple of loads of laundry. After that an afternoon of some NFL Football! For dinner tonight a new Pork recipe. I prepared a Oven-Roasted (Pork) Boston Butt w/ Mashed Potatoes, Asian Beans, and Baked French Bread.

 

 

 

Oven-Roasted (Pork) Boston Butt w Mashed Potatoes, Asian Beans, 002

Came across this recipe while looking at Food Blogs on-line, on the blog of Mae’s Kitchen (http://maeskitchen.blogspot.com/2011/05/oven-roasted-boston-butt.html). When you get a chance check her blog out, full of recipes! Anyway the recipe that caught my eye was the Oven-roasted Boston Butt (recipe from Bobby Flay). I love using pork Shoulder/Boston Butt and the spices for this one sounded too good not to try! To make it I’ll need; 3 tablespoons paprika, 1 tablespoon garlic powder, 1 tablespoon brown sugar (I used Splenda Brown Sugar}, 1 tablespoon dry mustard, 3 tablespoons coarse salt (I used Sea Salt}, and 1 (4 1/2 pound) Pork Shoulder/ Boston Butt.

 

Oven-Roasted (Pork) Boston Butt w Mashed Potatoes, Asian Beans, 001
I did this part on Saturday afternoon. To prepare it I mixed the paprika, garlic power, brown sugar, dry mustard, and salt together in a small bowl. Then rubbed the spice blend all over the pork and marinated it overnight, covered, and in the refrigerator. This looked so good after marinating all night!

 

 

 

 

Oven-Roasted (Pork) Boston Butt w Mashed Potatoes, Asian Beans, 003

Next day preheated the oven to 300 degrees. Put the pork in a roasting pan and baked for about 6 hours. Baked until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registered 170 degrees.Removed the pork roast from the oven and transferred to a large platter. Allowed the meat to rest for about 10 minutes. The roast came out almost falling apart itself, and the spices kicked up the flavor another 2 notches with a beautiful crust on it! While still warm, I used my set of Bear Claws and pulled the meat apart shredding it. Put the shredded pork in a bowl. I then added JB’s Fat Boy Haug Waush BBQ Sauce. It’s our favorite BBQ Sauce, they have several different kinds along with their selections of Rubs. Mom and Dad made Sandwiches with it, I just had mine in a plate. There’s plenty leftover which will make some great Sandwiches for Lunch. A “Keeper Recipe” for sure! The original recipe along with the web link is at the end of the post.

Asian Chicken Thighs w Asian BBQ Beans 004

For one side I heated up some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Microwave for a total of 6 minutes and done. Then for a second side dish I heated up a can of Bush’s Asian BBQ Beans. To prepare the Beans I just opened the can and emptied the Beans into a medium saucepan and heat to simmer. Heat and serve, that’s one easy Bean Dish. Second time I tried these. They are incredible! Red beans in an Asian-inspired BBQ sauce with a hint of ginger. Excellent Bean Side Dish! Pork,Potatoes, Beans, a winning trio for dinner. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Oven-roasted Boston Butt (recipe from Bobby Flay)
Dry Rub:

Mix the paprika, garlic power, brown sugar, dry mustard, and salt together in a small bowl. Rub the spice blend all over the pork and marinate for as long as you have time for, as little as 1 hour or up to overnight, covered, in the refrigerator.

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.

Put the pork in a roasting pan and bake for about 6 hours. Basically, roast the pork until it’s falling apart and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 170 degrees F.

After baking…
Remove the pork roast from the oven and transfer to a large platter. Allow the meat to rest for about 10 minutes. While still warm, take 2 forks and “pull” the meat to form shreds. Using 2 forks, shred the pork by steadying the meat with 1 fork and pulling it away with the other. Put the shredded pork in a bowl.

Note: don’t add the BBQ sauce if you are not eating everything. Package using freezer bags and save it for another day.

Homemade Cider Vinegar Barbecue Sauce (from Bobby Flay)Oven-Roasted (Pork) Boston Butt w Mashed Potatoes, Asian Beans, 003
1 1/2 cups cider vinegar
1 cup yellow or brown mustard
1/2 cup ketchup
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 garlic cloves, smashed
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cayenne
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

To make the barbecue sauce: combine the vinegar, mustard, ketchup, brown sugar, garlic, salt, cayenne, and black pepper in a saucepan over medium heat. Simmer gently, stirring, for 10 minutes until the sugar dissolves.

I didn’t like breaking the meat. It took me a while but it was so worth it. The whole Boston butt made so much pulled pork I actually froze three bags.

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

 

Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin w Mashed Potatoes and Italian Cut G 003
For Breakfast I had Scrambled Eggs, Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast sausage Links, Aunt Millie’s Toasted Whole Grain Toast, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Good way to start a rainy Monday Morning. Lot of rain today, temps in the 50’s. All caught up on house work and laundry so did some much needed cleaning on and around my computer desk. Got that done and did some cleaning of the computer, deleted some old files and programs. Not much else going on today. For dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin w/ Mashed Potatoes and Italian Cut Green Beans.

 

 

Cumin Spiced Pork Roast Tri Color Pot 006

I’ve been using the Cumin Spiced Rub for quite some time now. I purchased the Simple Truth Pork Tenderloin from Kroger and had it in the freezer. I let it thaw overnight in the fridge. To make the dish I’ll need; 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 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. From the stove to the oven; Bake at 350° for 15 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. Then get ready to enjoy one delicious Pork Tenderloin! Fantastic combo of Spices, which makes one incredible Crust on the Pork with the inside being tender and moist! This is my favorite Pork Recipe!

Today’s Menu: Cuban-Style Pulled Pork Roast Sandwich w/ Red Potato Wedges and Mini Carrots

 

Cuban-Style Pulled Pork Roast Sandwich 008
A beautiful Saturday out today, sunny and 63 degrees! But I wasn’t out much to enjoy it, the FLU! I had been taking care of Mom and Dad, early Flu victims, and now it’s been passed to me. I’d rather have it than them though, with their age it’s tougher for them to recover. So after getting some daily chores out of the way it was back to bed for me. Thank goodness for leftovers! Sure didn’t feel like cooking tonight so I warm up that mouth-watering Cuban-Style Pork and sides. Tonight it’s a Cuban-Style Pulled Pork Roast Sandwich w/ Red Potato Wedges and Mini Carrots.
I warmed up all the leftovers from last night. I pulled the Cuban-Style Pork Roast and made a sandwich out of it, using a Kroger Lite Hamburger Wheat Bun. Then for my sides I also reheated the Red Potatoes and Mini Carrots. Had a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink. If you need a great Pork Recipe you have to try this one! No dessert tonight. Hopefully this Flu Bug passes quick. Below is the post from last night with recipe and the link to the recipe website.

 

 

 

 

As I said, another new recipe tonight, Cuban-Style Pork Roast. This one comes from the latest issue of Rachael Ray Every Day Magazine. Several good recipe ideas in it but this one just stood out to me. To make the dish I’ll need; 1 tablespoon Hungarian Paprika, 1 tablespoon Dried Oregano, 1 tablespoon Roasted Ground Cumin, 1 1/2 teaspoons Garlic Powder, 1 5 pound Boneless Pork Shoulder Roast (tied if needed), 1/4 cup fresh Orange Juice, and 2 tablespoons fresh Lime Juice.

 
To prepare it, quite easy. In a large bowl, combine the paprika, oregano, cumin and garlic powdCuban-Style Pork Roast 008er with 1 1/2 tsp. salt and 1 1/2 tsp. pepper. Add the pork and rub all over with the spice mixture. Transfer the pork to a resealable plastic bag, adding any seasoning that didn’t adhere. Add the orange and lime juices. Seal the bag; turn a few times to distribute the mixture. Placed it in a large bowl and refrigerated for about 20 hours, turning once or twice. When ready to cook it I moved the pork and pat it dry. Position a rack in the lower third of the oven; preheated to 325 degrees . In a 5-to 6-quart Dutch oven, arranged the pork, fat side up. Cover and cooked 1 hour. Removed the pot from the oven and turn the pork, fat side down. Covered and continue to cook until the pork is fork- tender, about 1 1/2 hours longer. Increase the oven temperature to 375 degrees . Uncovered the pot, turn the pork, fat side up, and continue to cook, basting occasionally, until the top began to brown and sizzle, about 35 minutes. Transferred the pork to a platter and let rest 10 to 20 minutes. Discarded the excess fat from the pot. Added 1/3 cup water and bring to a simmer, scraping up any browned bits, to make the sauce. Carved the pork and served with the sauce. We got a winner, winner Pork dinner! Came out so moist and tender with an incredible flavor. The Spices combined with Orange Juice and Lime Juice makes the Pork Roast Rock! As last night we got us another “Keeper Recipe”.

Cuban-Style Pork Roast 005
To go with the Pork I prepared some Cast Iron Skillet Red Herbed Potatoes. Seasoned these baby’s with 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn, Dried Rosemary, Dried Thyme, and a couple of shakes of Garlic Powder. Quartered the Potatoes, adding to a large bowl and seasoned them with all the above ingredients. Added the Potatoes to a Cast Iron Skillet that I preheated on medium heat. Fried them on medium heat until they were fork-tender. Then for a second side dish I boiled some Mini Carrots, again till they were fork-tender. I also baked the other half of the Sourdough Loaf leftover from last night. For dessert later a Del Monte No Sugar Added Peach Chunk Cup.

Today’s Menu: Bacon-Wrapped Blackberry Pork Roast w/ Green Beans & Potatoes and Boiled Carrots

 

 

 

Blackberry Bacon wrapped Pork Roast 011
The weather is something around here! In some places we have 4-5 inches still on the ground, then this morning it was pouring the rain along with thunder and lightning. Then as the afternoon hit, the sun came out briefly and it warmed up to the mid 50’s. Then tonight some heavy rain and wind coming through, welcome to Southwest Ohio! Hopefully Spring Weather is coming soon! Well for dinner tonight another new recipe, Bacon-Wrapped Blackberry Pork Roast w/ Green Beans & Potatoes and Boiled Carrots.

 

 

 
Came across this recipe from the Food Network Magazine and it looked and sounded too good not to give it a try! Come on Pork Roast marinated in Blackberry Preserves, sounded good to me. To prepare it I needed; 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard, 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme, Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, 1 4 -to-5-pound boneless center-cut pork loin, trimmed, 1 clove garlic (smashed), 2 red onions, quartered, and 8 slices turkey bacon. Sounding good now doesn’t it! I used Polaner Sugar Free Blackberry Preserves, only 10 calories and 2 net carbs per serving, and for the bacon I used Jennie – O Turkey Bacon which is only 30 calories and 0 carbs per slice. I also used a smaller Pork Loin than what the recipe called for.

 

 

Blackberry Bacon wrapped Pork Roast 002

Then to prepare it was very easy. I combined the preserves, with 1 tablespoon vinegar, the mustard, thyme and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a small bowl. Poked the pork in a few spots with a paring knife, then rubbed with the garlic; seasoned with salt and pepper. Then rubbed the pork all over with the preserves mixture, then transferred to a large Hefty resealable bag and refrigerated overnight.

 

 

 

Then today, about 20 minutes before roasting, I removed the pork from the refrigerator and preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Put the red onions in a metal roasting pan and set a rack on top. Wrap the pork with the bacon, then set on the rack. Roasted until the bacon was crisp and a thermometer inserted into the center of the pork registered 145 degrees F, about 1 1/2 hours. Let it rest 10 minutes before serving. It called for making a gravy out of the drippings but I decided not to make the gravy. The Pork came out with just an incredible flavor! The sweetness of the Blackberry Preserves along with the smokieness that the Turkey Bacon provided along with all the other ingredients worked perfect with Pork. Everyone enjoyed this one, another keeper recipe! If you’re a fan of Pork Roasts you have to try this one. I’ve left the original recipe along with its web link at the bottom of the post.

 

 

 

Then for the side dishes it was the Big 3 of Vegetables, Green Beans, Potatoes, and Carrots. I heated up a can of the Del Monte Cut Green Beans & Potatoes. Then I boiled some whole Mini Carrots. Also had a slice of Klosterman Wheat Bread. For dessert later a bowl of Del Monte No Sugar Added Peach Chunks.

 

 

 

 
Bacon-Wrapped Blackberry Pork RoastBlackberry Bacon wrapped Pork Roast 004

Recipe courtesy of Food Network Kitchens
Ingredients
1/4 cup blackberry preserves
3 tablespoons white wine vinegar or champagne vinegar
2 tablespoons dijon mustard
2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
1 4 -to-5-pound boneless center-cut pork loin, trimmed
1 clove garlic, smashed
2 red onions, quartered
8 slices bacon
2 tablespoons instant flour (such as Wondra)
3 cups low-sodium chicken broth

Directions
Combine the preserves, 1 tablespoon vinegar, the mustard, thyme and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a small bowl. Poke the pork in a few spots with a paring knife, then rub with the garlic; season with salt and pepper. Rub the pork all over with the preserves mixture, then transfer to a large resealable bag and refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight.

About 20 minutes before roasting, remove the pork from the refrigerator and preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Put the red onions in a metal roasting pan and set a rack on top. Wrap the pork with the bacon (see below), then set on the rack. Roast until the bacon is crisp and a thermometer inserted into the center of the pork registers 145 degrees F, about 1 1/2 hours. Transfer the pork to a cutting board; let rest 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, make the gravy: Discard all but 2 tablespoons of the drippings from the pan. Place the roasting pan over 2 burners over medium-low heat and whisk in the flour until incorporated. Add the chicken broth and whisk until thickened, about 5 minutes. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons vinegar and season with salt and pepper.

Serve with the onions and gravy
