Classic Sesame Noodles with Chicken
Classic sesame noodles become a healthy meal with lean chicken and tons of veggies in this quick recipe for Asian noodles.

Swap 5 cups of raw zucchini, carrot or other veggie “noodles” for the cooked pasta………

Black Bean-Smothered Sweet Potatoes

Cast Iron Skillet Buffalo Hanging Steak w/ Baked Potato and Bourbon and Brown Sugar Beans

Today’s Menu: Cast Iron Skillet Buffalo Hanging Steak w/ Baked Potato and Bourbon and Brown Sugar Beans

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared an Egg, sunny side up. I also prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Nice start to a chilly November Morning. 31 degrees out there this morning. It was mostly cloudy and a high of 42 degrees. Mom had some things to do today so i did the laundry for her and looked after Dad. Did a few chores around the house after Lunch. Everything done, I watched some College Football the rest of the afternoon. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cast Iron Skillet Buffalo Hanging Steak and Mushrooms w/ Baked Potato, Bourbon and Brown Sugar Beans, and baked Texas Toast.

 

 

Wild Idea Buffalo had their 16 oz. Hanging Tender Steaks on sale a couple of weeks ago and I ordered a couple of them and I’m having one of them for Dinner tonight. I had it in the freezer so I laid it in the fridge overnight to thaw. To season it I’ll need; McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Grinder Peppercorn Medley, Dried Rosemary, and Extra Light Olive Oil.

 

 

 

For the Steak; I rinsed the Hanger Steak and pat it dry. Then I grabbed a sharp fillet knife and ran the knife along one side of the sinew that runs down the center, creating two fillets. Remove the sinew from fillet that it remains attached to with knife. When I first found this recipe I didn’t know what the word “sinew” meant. I looked it up and the definition is; sinew – a piece of tough fibrous tissue uniting muscle to bone or bone to bone; a tendon or ligament. Learned something new! Which is why I enjoy cooking so much, you’re always learning something! To continue, next I rubbed the steaks with the Olive Oil, Sea Salt, Pepper, and Rosemary . Cover and allow it to rest at room temperature for 2 hours. I cut the other half of the Steak in half again and I’ll be having them for a couple of Steak and Eggs Breakfasts with that!

 

To start I got out a Cast Iron Skillet out. Sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray and added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated the Skillet on medium heat. Next I preheated the oven to 400 degrees. Then to start I pan fried it, on medium heat about 2 minutes per side. Starting out cooking it on the stove gave it a nice sear to start. Then I put the Skillet in the oven and roasted it until it had internal temperature of 145 degrees for a medium rare, and it came out perfect, love using Cast Iron Skillets; from the stove to the oven! After removing it from the oven I put the Steak on a plate and lest it rest for 5 minutes before serving. These Steaks are so moist and tender and have that distinct Wild idea Buffalo flavor. The juices off the Steak was just incredible! I also prepared some sauteed Mushrooms to go with Steak.

 

For a side I prepared a Baked Potato. Seasoned that with the McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter.

 

 

 

 

 

Then for another side I prepared some Bush’s Grillin’ Beans Bourbon and Brown Sugar. Not sure if I’ve had these before or not, but they sure are good! As all Bush Beans are. I just emptied the can into a small sauce pan and heated them until they started to simmer and the Beans heated. Love these Bush Beans! I also baked a slice of the New York Bakery Garlic Texas Toast. For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

 

 

 

 


Wild Idea Buffalo – 16 oz. Hanging Tender Steak
Also known as the hanger steak, this is a coveted favorite of butchers. The deep rich flavor and delicate tenderness requires less cooking time. Roast whole or cut for medallions or kebabs. 1 lb.

A TASTE OF TENNESSEE
BUSH’S® BOURBON AND BROWN SUGAR GRILLIN’ BEANS®

When you’re grilling your favorite meats, you want a side that can hold its own—like the bold taste of BUSH’S® Bourbon and Brown Sugar Grillin’ Beans®. We slow-cook plump navy beans in a robust sauce generously seasoned with brown sugar, molasses, a bold blend of spices and a touch of natural bourbon flavor for a side dish that’s decidedly different.

Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Seasoned Pinto Beans and Mashed Potatoes

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Seasoned Pinto Beans and Mashed Potatoes

 

 

 

I had a light Breakfast this morning. Toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English and lightly Buttered it with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. A bit nippy out there this morning, 38 degrees. We had a high of 57 degrees and it was sunny. I just love the Fall Season, my favorite time of the year! After Breakfast I headed to Meijer for a few items. Stopped by the bank and dropped off some letters at the Post Office before heading back home. So for Dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Baked Multi Grain Bread.

 

 

 

I picked the Chop up at Meijer earlier today. I really love the Meijer selection and quality of all their meats, and all their products and produce. They have some of the finest Pork Chops you can find.

 

 

 

 

 

So 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. I always have some of the Rub made up in a large Spice Jar I have 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 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 150° (slightly pink), turning after 5 minutes. Let stand 5 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 one side I heated up a can of Margaret Holmes Seasoned Pinto Beans. I purchased a few of cans of this at a nearby Walmart, they carry a good selection of a lot of the Margaret Holmes Products. To prepare it just empty the contents into a medium saucepan. Cover it and bring it to a boil. Stir and reduce the heat to slow simmer and serve when ready. And I have delicious side dish! I love Beans of all kinds and these Seasoned Pinto Beans are delicious, love the Seasoning.

 

 

 

For a second side I prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. I also baked a loaf of LaBrea Multi-Grain Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet peach Snapple 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.
