Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin w/ Roasted Asparagus and Mashed Potatoes

 

 

To start this morning off I prepared a packet of Pioneer Peppered White Gravy, toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, fried 2 Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. , 89 degrees, humid outside, and passing showers out today. Cincinnati Bell came today and replaced and buried our new lines for the phone and cable TV. Heavy rain came in just after Noon so that stopped my yard work for the day. Anyway for Dinner tonight its a Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin w/ Roasted Asparagus and Mashed Potatoes.

I finally found a Pork Tenderloin at Kroger! They’ve been hard to come by the last couple of months, no local grocery stores have had any. So I purchased the Simple Truth Pork Tenderloin from Kroger the other day, just over 1 1/2 lbs. 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 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. 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 by far!

For a side I prepared Roasted Asparagus. I love pairing Asparagus with Potatoes! To prepare it I’ll need; 1 bunch of Asparagus (fibrous bases removed), 1 Tablespoon of Crumbled Bacon or Bacon Bits, Ground Garlic Salt, Sea Salt, Freshly Ground Black Pepper, and 1 tbsp Extra Light Olive Oil. To prepare it is easy; Preheat the oven to 400F. Place the Asparagus in a baking tray sheet. Add the Bacon, Garlic Salt, Salt, Pepper, and Extra Light Olive Oil and toss to coat. Bake for 8 minutes. Remove from oven. Cool a couple of minutes and serve! Comes out tender and delicious!

For another side I prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. Then I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. For Dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Chocolate Ice Cream.

One of America’s Favorites – Oysters Rockefeller

Oysters Rockefeller consists of oysters on the half-shell that have been topped with a rich sauce of butter, parsley and other green herbs, and bread crumbs, then baked or broiled. Lemon wedges are the typical garnish.

Oysters Rockefeller topped with bacon

The original sauce may or may not include spinach, a popular shortcut for achieving the dish’s signature bright green color. Many contemporary adaptations use diced oysters instead of whole. Also, diced bacon often appears as a non-traditional topping in addition to or in place of the sauce.

The dish appears as a popular restaurant appetizer throughout the United States and is served as a brunch item in the South.

Oysters Rockefeller was created in 1889 at the New Orleans restaurant Antoine’s by Jules Alciatore, son of founder Antoine Alciatore. Jules developed the dish due to a shortage of escargot, substituting the locally available oysters. The recipe remains unchanged, with an estimated three and a half million orders having been served.

The dish was named Oysters Rockefeller after John D. Rockefeller, the then-wealthiest American, for its extreme richness. It consists of oysters on the half-shell topped with a green sauce and bread crumbs, then baked or broiled. Though the original sauce recipe is a secret, it includes a purée of a number of green vegetables that may include spinach. Similar versions of the dish have proliferated in New Orleans, with none noted as an accurate duplicate.

Chef Alton Brown states in the “Shell Game” episode of his Food Network series Good Eats that Alciatore took his recipe to the grave and any version since is merely an assumption. While many achieve the sauce’s trademark green color simply using spinach, Antoine’s chefs have repeatedly denied the dish contains it. A 1986 laboratory analysis by William Poundstone in Bigger Secrets indicated its primary ingredients were parsley, pureed and strained celery, scallions or chives (indistinguishable in a food lab), olive oil, and capers.

Pernod Fils absinthe liqueur, a popular Victorian-era inclusion that fell out of production in 1915, is a possible original ingredient. Malcolm Hébert, native Louisianan, cookbook author and wine and food editor, decries spinach, and adds the anise-flavored liqueur Herbsaint. It is not possible that Herbsaint was in the original recipe, as Herbsaint debuted in 1934, nor Pernod Fils, which did not appear until after the First World War.
