Today’s Menu: BBQ Shredded Pork Sandwiches w/ Potato Chips

 

 

 


For Breakfast this morning I fried up a couple of Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links along with some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns. Also had that morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Lot of rain out there today. Showers on and off all day, had a high of 55 degrees. Good day to stay in and I did! So today I cleaned the house, vacuum and dusted. Then cleaned the fridge and oven in the Kitchen. Later on caught up on some shows I had recorded. For Dinner tonight i prepared BBQ Shredded Pork Sandwiches w/ Potato Chips.

 

 

 

I had used the Hormel Slow Simmered Pork Roast Au Jus but it had been a while since I’ve used it. It comes fully cooked in a sealed microwavable plastic tray. To prepare it first remove the outer sleeve and place vacuum-sealed tray in microwave, do not pierce or vent film. Then heat on high for 4 minutes. Self-venting film expands as it heats, forming a bubble to lock in flavor and juiciness. Let stand for 2 minutes. Peel back film and serve! Excellent Pork!

 

 


I served it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hamburger Bun. I topped the Pork with some Jack Daniel’s Honey Smokehouse BBQ Sauce. For a side I had some Ruffle’s Reduced Fat Potato Chips. Also had an Ice-Cold Diet Dr. Pepper to drink. For Dessert later a Breyer’s 100 Calorie Vanilla Ice Cream Cup.

Today’s Menu: Dry Rubbed Chili Lime Boneless Pork Brisket w/ Savory Potatoes and Golden Hominy

 

 

 

For Breakfast on this March morning I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, lightly fried slices of Boar’s Head Sweet Sliced Ham, and 1 slice of Sargento Reduced Fat Swiss Cheese.Love these Breakfast Sandwiches! I also had that morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Lunch went to see Dad at the rehab center. For Dinner tonight a couple of new items. I prepared a Dry Rubbed Chili Lime Boneless Pork Brisket w/ Savory Herb Potatoes and Golden Hominy.

 

 

 

Second time we’ve had these, and love them! I wasn’t a fan of Brisket of any kind but this one has changed my mind on Brisket! It comes already seasoned; Dry Rubbed Chili Lime. It comes packaged in 2 pieces. I used our large Cast Iron Skillet to cook it in. To prepare it; Preheated a lightly oiled, used Extra Light Olive Oil, Cast Iron skillet over medium-high heat. Removed meat from package and coated the Brisket lightly with Pam Cooking Spray and placed in skillet. Sauté approximately 10 to 12 minutes before turning. Turn the brisket and cook another 6 to 7 minutes. Sauté until the internal temperature reached 145˚F in the thickest part of the meat.

 

 

 

 

Removed from skillet and let it rest for 3 minutes. Sliced and served! It came out delicious! It had a nice char on the outside and was tender and moist, cooked perfectly. Another good item to have handy from Swift Premium.

 

 

 

Another 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.

 

 

 

For a side dish I opened up a can of one of my favorite side dishes, Kroger Brand Golden Hominy, and its been a while since I’ve any. For those that has 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. There is White and Golden Hominy, my favorite is the Golden Hominy. If you’ve never tried it do, makes a delicious side dish! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Dry Rubbed Chili Lime Boneless Pork Brisket w/ Cheddar and Bacon Mashed Cauliflower and Green Beans

 
For Breakfast on this snowy March morning I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, lightly fried slicesdry-rubbed-chili-lime-boneless-pork-brisket-w-cheddar-and-bacon-012 of Boar’s Head Sweet Sliced Ham, and 1 slice of Sargento Reduced Fat Swiss Cheese. And I had my Breakfast Sandwich! I also had that morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside another snow squall moved through the area, just like yesterday morning and about the same time of morning. Some areas had 2″ or more, we had a little over a 1/2″. Guess Old Man Winter wanted everyone to know it’s still Winter! Back into the 60’s by Monday though. After Lunch went to see Dad at the rehab center. He wasn’t looking too good today. I’m starting to really worry about him, hope he can turn it around. For Dinner tonight a couple of new items. I prepared a Dry Rubbed Chili Lime Boneless Pork Brisket w/ Cheddar and Bacon Mashed Cauliflower and Green Beans.

 
First time we have tried the Swift Premium Dry Rubbed Chili Lime Boneless Pork Brisket. We’ve tried a few of the dry-rubbed-chili-lime-boneless-pork-brisket-w-cheddar-and-bacon-005others so we thought we would try the Brisket. I’m not normally a fan of Brisket of any kind but this one has changed my mind on Brisket! It comes already seasoned; Dry Rubbed Chili Lime. It comes packaged in 2 pieces. I used our large Cast Iron Skillet to cook it in. To prepare it; Preheated a lightly oiled, used Extra Light Olive Oil, Cast Iron skillet over medium-high heat. Removed meat from package and coated the Brisket lightly with Pam Cooking Spray and placed in skillet. Sauté approximately 10 to 12 minutes before turning. Turn the brisket and cook another 6 to 7 minutes. Sauté until the internal temperature reached 145˚F in the thickest part of the meat.

Removed from skillet and let it rest for 3 minutes. Sliced and served! It came out delicious! It had a nice char on the outside and was tender and moist, cooked perfectly. Another good item to have handy from Swift Premium.

 

 
For one side dish I tried another new item, the Green Giant Cheddar and Bacon Mashed Cauliflower. I found it dry-rubbed-chili-lime-boneless-pork-brisket-w-cheddar-and-bacon-008Meijer the other day. I read the reviews on it and it seemed everyone enjoyed the taste but a common complaint was it too watery and thin. So I added a teaspoon of flour too it during the final 10 minutes of baking time and it seemed to cure that problem. It comes frozen in microwavable or baking tray, I baked mine. To prepare it; Preheated the oven to 425 degrees. i cut 2 slits near the center of the plastic to vent. Placed it on a baking sheet and placed it in the oven and baked it for 30 minutes. Removed it from the oven after the 30 minutes and peeled back the plastic and stirred. I also added a teaspoon of flour to it to thicken it up a bit. Replaced the film back on top and baked an additional 12 minutes. Removed it from the oven and let it stand 1 minute. Stirred it and served! Excellent taste and the flour thickened up just enough. Nice change of pace side dish.

 

Fried Walleye w Risotto and Cut Green Beans 004

 

Then I also heated up a can of my favorite, Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Just empty the can into a small sauce pan and heat to a light boil and heat until warmed. I also heated up the leftover French Bread. For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

I fasted overnight I had to got the Urologist for my yearly checkup at 8:00 this morning. After that I headed off to Meijer, I just needed a few items. Back home I did some house cleaning and finished up a couple of loads of laundry for Mom. After Lunch I went to spend the afternoon with Dad at the rehab center. He’s taking therapy twice a day still and getting stronger!. So for dinner tonight I prepared a Panko Crusted Cubed Pork Steak w/ White Gravy, Mashed Potatoes and Vegetarian Baked Beans.

 

 

I bought a of packages of Cubed Pork Steak at Kroger the other day. To prepare them, I got the big three out to bread it with; Flour,Egg Beater’s, and Panko Bread Crumbs. I seasoned the Steak with Sea Salt and Black Ground Pepper. Cubed Pork Steak Sandwich Shake and Bake 001Next I seasoned the Flour with Hungarian Paprika and rolled the Cube Pork in that and shook off the excess. Then I dipped it in the Egg Beater’s shaking off the excess and then pressed both sides in the Shake and Bake Seasoned Panko Bread Crumbs, making sure both sides was well covered. I heated up a medium size skillet, that I drizzled with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, on medium high heat. Added my Cubed Pork and fried both sides about 4 minutes per side, till each side was golden brown. Topped it with some Pioneer Peppered White Gravy. The Cubed Pork Steak came out delicious! Moist and very tender with a good flavor from the Paprika and all the other ingredients. As you can tell in the picture, the Steaks are huge so I cut them half, I’ll have the other half for Breakfast in the morning.

For Breakfast this morning i toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin that I topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Also, as usual my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mom needed a few items for Dad so after Breakfast I went to the Kroger up the road. While there I picked up a package of the Swift Premium Dry Rubbed Kansas City Style BBQ Pork Loin Boneless Backribs. The Pork Loin Boneless Backribs are just over 1 lb. and already Rubbed and Seasoned. Second time we’ve had these, really enjoyed them the first time!

 

 

 

I chose the Baking Method to prepare it. I preheated the oven on 350°F. Removed the meat from package and bbq-pork-loin-boneless-backribs-w-baked-potato-and-mini-ears-of-004placed cut side up in an uncovered roasting pan. The instructions said to cook approximately 40 to 45 minutes or until internal the temperature on a meat thermometer reaches 145°F in the thickest part of the meat. After 20 minutes I put a light glaze of Jack Daniel’s Honey Smokehouse BBQ Sauce. It took about the full 45 minutes to reach the 145°F. Removed from oven and let rest 3 minutes. Then carve and serve. Lean, moist, and seasoned perfectly! Just an excellent flavor and very tender. A very good item to have handy in the freezer!

Mom’s favorite meal is my Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs and she’s been wanting some Ribs. So “what Mom wants Mom gets”. So Ribs it is for dinner tonight. She I picked up a package at Kroger yesterday, they always have top quality Pork. And these were some Pork Back Ribs, 4 1/2 lbs. worth! Last night before I went to bed I cut the Ribs in half, so they’ll fit in the Crock Pot, and put each half in a Hefty Gallon Plastic Bag then seasoned them with JB’s Fat Boy All Purpose Rub and then covered the Ribs in JB’s Fat Boy Haug Waush BBQ Sauce to marinate all night in the fridge.

 
Then this morning I got out the Crock Pot, lined it with a Reynold’s Crock Pot Plastic Liner, and sprayed that with Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs 002Pam Non-Stick Spray. Got the Ribs out of the fridge, discarded the Hefty Bags, and put them in the Crock Pot where I let them cook and simmer, on low, for about 8 hours. Long up in the afternoon you can start smelling the aroma of the Ribs, Rib intoxicating! After 8 hours their ready and now for the hard part of cooking them, getting them out whole without breaking them up! Their that tender, when eating them you need no knife, the bones just slide out. Tender, moist and just full of flavor! For us JB’s Fat Boy Sauces and Rubs can’t be beat. The Ribs were incredible! Plus I love using that Crock Pot, no mess and with the plastic liner in the Crock Pot little to no clean-up. Just wipe it down and store it for the next time. I would like to thank who ever invented the Crock Pot Liners! I always use them when using the Crock Pot.

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin w/ Roasted Savory Herb Potatoes and Whole Baby Carrots

 

 

cumin-spiced-pork-tenderloin-w-roasted-savory-herb-potatoes-and-003
To start the morning off I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and topped it with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. I also had my early morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast and my morning workout I headed of to Meijer. Mom needed some items as I did also. Cold morning, in the 20’s with a cold breeze. For the day it was a high around 45 degrees and partly sunny. After Meijer I had to stop by the bank and stopped and got gas. Not a lot going on this afternoon so I relaxed and got caught up on shows I had recorded. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin w/ Roasted Savory Herb Potatoes and Whole Baby Carrots.

 
Most of the time when I’m preparing Pork I use the Cumin Spiced Rub, as I did tonight. I had the Simple Truth Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin Red Potatoes Sugar Snap Peas 008Tenderloin Roast, Kroger Brand, in the freezer, I sat it in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare it I’ll need; 1 Simple Truth Pork Tenderloin, For the Rub: 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. Bake at 375° for 15 minutes or until a thermometer registers 145° (slightly pink), turning after 7 minutes. 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!

So easy to prepare and no clean up.

Today’s Menu: Cubed Pork Steak Sandwich w/ Baked Crinkle Fries

 

 
For Breakfast this morning I reheated the Skillet Potatoes and Ham leftover from Breakfast yesterday. I used 1 Cubed Pork Steak Sandwich w Baked Fries 007package of Simply Potatoes Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes and a package of Meijer Diced Ham to prepare it. Just cook the Potatoes according to the package instructions and with about 5 minutes of cooking time left add the Diced Ham. I topped everything with a fried Sunny Side Up Egg and a sprinkle of Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar. I went out to get the Sunday Morning Papers and it is down right cold out there! About 24 degrees with one cold wind blowing, chill factor in the teens. Had a of 40 degrees and cloudy out for the day. After I had Breakfast I went to McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom and Dad. Not a lot to do today so I got the paper shredder out and shredded a few months of past bills and old insurance statements. After that it was an afternoon of NFL Football. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cubed Pork Steak Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

 
I had a of package of Cubed Pork Steak that I purchased from Walmart a day ago. To prepare it I got the big three of Cubed Pork Steak Sandwich Shake and Bake 001breading out to bread it with; Flour, Egg Beater’s, and Panko Bread Crumbs. I seasoned the Steak with Sea Salt and Black Ground Pepper. Next I seasoned the Flour with Hungarian Paprika and rolled the Cube Pork in that and shook off the excess. Then I dipped it in the Egg Beater’s shaking off the excess and then pressed both sides in the Shake and Bake Seasoned Panko Bread Crumbs, making sure both sides was well covered. I heated up a medium size skillet, that I drizzled with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, on medium high heat. Added my Cubed Pork and fried about 4 minutes per side, till each side was golden brown. The Walmart Cubed Pork Steaks were very good, tender and moist.

 

Cubed Pork Steak Sandwich w Baked Fries 001
The Cubed Pork Steak came out delicious! Moist and very tender with a good flavor from the Paprika and all the other ingredients. Served it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Hamburger Bun and topped with some French’s Brown Spicy Brown Mustard. I fried both patties in the package, I’ll have the other one for Lunch tomorrow. The Pork and Panko are a perfect match and the Spicy Brown Mustard tops everything off. First time I had tried the Walmart Cubed Pork Steaks. They were very good, tender and moist.
