Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Whole New Potatoes, Cut Green Beans and Harvest Apples

 

 

 

For Breakfast on this Sunday morning I fried 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausages and toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread that I lightly Buttered with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast went to Meijer, needed Bread and Buns. After Lunch went to see Dad for a bit. Back home all caught up on everything so it was an afternoon of NFL Football! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Whole New Potatoes, Cut Green Beans and Harvest Apples.

 

 

I picked up a couple of large Center Cut Pork Chops from the Meijer Meat Department and had them in the freezer. I laid one of them in the fridge overnight to thaw. Just love the Meijer selection and quality of all their meats, and all their products and produce. I like using these large Chops, plenty leftover for Breakfast or Lunch the next day!

 

 

 

 

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 oven to 400°. Combine all the ingredients; rub it all over the Chop. Let stand 20 minutes. I’ll be using a Cast Iron Skillet for the Chop. I love using Cast Iron Skillets, not only do the heat up evenly and retain that heat but you can also go from using it on the stove and right into the oven. So I start by heating the Extra Virgin Olive oil in the Cast Iron Skillet over medium-high heat. Add the Chop 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 gives a fantastic flavor and perfect browning to the Chop. The inside being so tender and moist! Love this seasoning on Pork.

 

For 1 side dish I heated up a can of Del Monte Whole New Potatoes. Just heat and serve, seasoned with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley, Parsley, and I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter.

 

 

 

 

 

Then I reheated the leftover Del Monte Cut Green Beans from last night’s Dinner, I love Beans!

 

 

 

 

 

Then for another side dish. I prepared a package of Stouffer’s Harvest Apples, first time I’ve tried this one. An easily prepared way to get a delicious and savory Apple Dish. Easy to prepare; It comes in a microwavable tray. Microwave on high for 6 minutes, let cool and serve! Apples and Pork Chops are always go great together. This is a good one to have in the freezer! For Dessrt later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

 

 

 

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.

I made some Grits for Breakfast, been a while since I’ve had any. I used Kroger Butter Flavor Instant Grits. I also had a toasted slice of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread (Lightly Buttered), and a couple of links of Jennie O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links. Outside the morning is a mess! It started snowing around 5:00 this morning and we only got a couple of inches but the ground was frozen so the snow was freezing on impact. Had all the roads and walkways a mess! The snow did stop around noon and it cleared up a bit. So not a lot going on outside today.

Today’s Menu: Cubed Steak Sandwich w/ Cut Italian Green Beans and Whole New Potatoes

 

Cubed Steak Sandwich w Cut Italian Green Beans and Whole New Pot 008
Cool and rainy morning to start. Had a light Breakfast and headed out to Kroger to pick up a couple of items for tomorrow night’s dinner. Back home did some laundry and then some house cleaning. Then we still had a couple of chairs and outside table that I moved into the shed for the Winter, it’s getting to be that time of year! For dinner tonight I prepared a Cubed Steak Sandwich w/ Cut Italian Green Beans and Whole New Potatoes.

 

 

Cubed Steak Sandwich Beef 001

I rarely use Beef anymore but when I do it’s usually my favorite Cubed Steak, Meijer Cubed Steak. When I go to Meijer I always pick up a package or two. The best Cubed Steak I have ever found by far. They’re good size patties so I’m able to cut them in half and get 2 meals out 1 pattie. I had a package in the freezer so I let it thaw overnight in the fridge. To prepare them I seasoned them with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper and I then dusted them in flour that I had mixed with a bit of Hungarian Paprika. Shook off the excess flour and pan fried them in Extra Virgin Oil, about 4 minutes per side. They came out delicious! Excellent flavor and very tender, especially for Cubed Steak which sometimes can be somewhat tough and stringy. Served it on toasted Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread and topped it with some Heinz Mushroom Brown Gravy. I’ll have the other half for breakfast in the morning.

 

Fried Walleye w Cut Roma Beans and Baked Roasted Fingerling Pota 002
Then for one side dish I heated a can of Allens Cut Italian Green Beans. My Aunt had grown some in her garden and brought us over some last Summer and loved them. Then just the other day while at Kroger I came across the Allens Cut Italian Green Beans, so I bought 4 cans of them. Prepared 1 can the other night. 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.

For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Mousse.

 

 

 

 
Cube SteakCubed Steak Sandwich w New Potatoes 001

Cube steak is a cut of beef, usually top round or top sirloin, tenderized by fierce pounding with a meat tenderizer, or use of an electric tenderizer. The name refers to the shape of the indentations left by that process (called “cubing”). Many professional cooks insist that regular tenderizing mallets cause too much mashing to produce a proper cube steak, and insist on either using specialized cube steak machines, or manually applying a set of sharp-pointed rods to pierce the meat in every direction. This is the most common cut of meat used for chicken fried steak.

 

In Canada as well as in some parts of the United States, cube steak may be called a minute steak, because it can be cooked quickly.
Others distinguish minute steak as:
* simply referring to the cut, which is not necessarily tenderized;
* thinner than cube steak (hence does not need tenderizing);
* cut from sirloin or round, while cube steak cut is from chuck or round.
The term “minute steak” is also used in the United Kingdom, where the term “cube steak” is little known.

Today’s Menu: Pan Fried Flounder w/ Cut Italian Green Beans and Whole New Potatoes

 

Pan Fried Flounder w Cut Italian Green Beans and Whole New Potat 011
Another cold and foggy morning out. Went out to get the morning paper and the fog mist was freezing on the ground in some areas. Fried up some Glier’s Turkey Goetta for Breakfast along with a Scrambled Egg and 2 slices of toasted Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. Throw in a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea and the morning papers, I was set to start the day! Not a whole lot going on today. Did some laundry and cleaned up around the house. For dinner tonight I prepared Pan Fried Flounder w/ Cut Italian Green Beans and Whole New Potatoes.

 

 

Pan Fried Flounder w Cut Italian Green Beans and Whole New Potat 005

When I was at Kroger yesterday I just couldn’t pass up a couple of items in their Seafood Department. They had some beautiful Flounder Fillets and Bay Scallops, best looking Bay Scallops I’ve seen in a while! So I’m preparing the Flounder for my dinner tonight.

 

 

Start by washing the fillets in cold water and pat dry. I’ll need the following; Flounder Fillets, Flour, Sea Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder and Hungarian Smoked Paprika, Egg Beater’s, and Shake and Bake Panko Bread Crumbs. Then I’ll be using 3 bowls for Breading the Flounder:
Bowl 1 – combine Flour, Sea Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder and Hungarian Smoked Paprika
Bowl 2 – 1/4 cup Egg Beater’s
Bowl 3 – Shake and Bake Panko Bread Crumbs

Pan Fried Flounder w Cut Italian Green Beans and Whole New Potat 008
Then bread the fillets. Dip the fillet in the Egg Beater’s, let excess drip off. Coat the fillets in the Flour-Spice mixture, dip in the Egg Beater’s again. Coat in the Panko. Then heat up a Cast Iron Skillet, over medium high. Add Extra Virgin Olive Oil to fully coat the bottom of the pan. The oil should be hot. Place the fillets in the hot oil, don’t overcrowd the skillet. Turn pan down to medium. Fry them 3 minutes per side. That time may be less or more depending on the size of the fillets. The fillets came out golden brown and delicious! A perfect combination of Spices gives a fantastic flavor.

Today’s Menu: 5 oz. Petite Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak w/ Boiled New Potatoes and Corn Souffle

 

5 oz. Petite Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak w Boiled New Potatoes and 005
Lot of rain overnight but it slowly cleared in the morning. Not a bad day, partly sunny and in the 60’s. Had an Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter and my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Did some housecleaning and finished up some laundry for Mom. After lunch I got the cart out for a while this afternoon. For dinner tonight my favorite Steak, I prepared a 5 oz. Petite Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak w/ Boiled New Potatoes and Corn Souffle.

 

 

Buffalo 10 oz. New York Strip Steak w Baked Steak Fries and Skil 005

 

I’ll be using Wild Idea Buffalo Petite Top Sirloin Steak (5 oz.). To prepare the Steak; I rubbed the Steak with a 1 teaspoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Then seasoned it with Dried Rosemary, McCormick’s Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. As the Steak rested I preheated a Cast Iron Skillet on medium heat. When the skillet was heated I added my Buffalo Sirloin, cooked it 4 minutes per side to a beautiful Medium Rare! The Wild Idea Buffalo Steaks are just incredible. So juicy and the best flavor of any Steak, Beef or Buffalo I’ve ever had.

 

 

 

Seasoned Haddock w Whole New Potatoes and Asparagus Cuts and Tip 002
For a side I heated up a can of Del Monte Whole New Potatoes, just emptied the contents of the can into a sauce pan and heated on medium heat until heated through.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Catfish Nuggets Corn Souffle 002

Then for another side, Stouffer’s Corn Souffle. Came across this one at Kroger. This is the second time I’ve had this, and love it. A Whole Grain Cornbread along with Sweet Corn, works for me! Just microwave for a total of 10 minutes and serve. This makes one hardy side, would go well with any Pork or Chicken dish also. Another easy to prepare and delicious side dish from Stouffer’s! For dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Chocolate Brownie.

Today’s Menu: Chili Rubbed Pork with Mango Salsa w/ New Potatoes

 

Chili Rubbed Pork with Mango Salsa w New Potatoes 014
For Breakfast I had an Egg Beater’s Egg White Scrambled Egg, 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, 2 slices of Toasted Aunt Millie’s Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Love a good Breakfast! After my morning workout it was house cleaning day. Ran the vacuum and dusted. Swept up and cleaned outside on the deck and driveway, getting a lot of leaves this year. After cleaning got the cart out for a while to enjoy another beautiful Fall Day, sunny and 70 degrees! Clouds and rain moving in though overnight and Saturday, much needed rain. For dinner tonight anew recipe, I prepare a Chili Rubbed Pork with Mango Salsa w/ New Potatoes.

 

 

I had come across this recipe from a McCormick Recipe email and had been wanting to try for some time, like dinnerChili Rubbed Pork with Mango Salsa w New Potatoes 001 tonight! To make this I’ll need the following; 1 package McCormick® Chili Seasoning Mix, 1 tablespoon packed Splenda Brown Sugar, 1 large ripe Mango (peeled) – seeded and finely chopped (1 cup), 1/3 cup finely chopped Red Onion, 2 tablespoons Orange Juice, 1 tablespoon chopped Cilantro, 2 Pork Tenderloins (about 1 pound each), and 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil. The ingredients of one delicious Pork Tenderloin! I used Splenda Brown Sugar instead of the regular Brown Sugar and I also used the McCormick® Chili Seasoning Mix instead of the Gluten-Free McCormick® Chili Seasoning Mix (Kroger was out of stock of it). The original recipe and web link is at the end of the post.

 
To prepare the dish I mixed the Seasoning Mix and Sugar in small bowl. For the Mango Salsa, mixed the Mango, Onion, Orange Juice, Cilantro and 1 teaspoon of the Seasoning Mixture in medium bowl. Covered and refrigerated Chili Rubbed Pork with Mango Salsa w New Potatoes 010until ready to serve.

I then brushed the Pork Tenderloins with Oil. Coated evenly with remaining seasoning mixture. Refrigerated for 1 hour, for extra flavor.

To prepare it preheat the oven to 375°. 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 5 minutes before slicing. I use this cooking method when I prepare my Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin and it always comes out perfect. The Tenderloin came moist and delicious! Love the McCormick® Chili Seasoning Mix along with Brown Sugar, nice crust and perfect flavor. A definite “Keeper Recipe”.

Cubed Steak Sandwich w New Potatoes 011
Just a flat out beautiful Summer’s Day out today! Got a whole night’s sleep and feel good today, a lot better than yesterday. After Breakfast I ran Mom to Walmart and the bank. Back home did a few things around the house and then got the cart out to enjoy the day! Sunshine and a high in low 70’s, incredible weather for August! For dinner tonight I prepared a Cubed Steak Sandwich w/ New Potatoes.

 

 

 

I used my absolute favorite Cubed Steak, Meijer Cubed Steak. When I go to Meijer I always pick up a package or two. The best Cubed Steak I have ever found or had. It’s about the only Beef I ever have, normally I have Buffalo, Fish, Chicken, or Pork. I had these in the freezer so I laid them in the fridge overnight to thaw. They’re good size patties so I was able to cut them in half and get 2 meals out 1 pattie, using the other one for breakfast in the morning. To prepare them I seasoned them with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper and I then rolled them in flour that I had mixed with a bit of Hungarian Paprika. Shook off the excess flour and pan fried them in Canola Oil, about 4 minutes per side. They came out delicious! Excellent flavor and very tender, especially for Cubed Steak which sometimes can be somewhat tough and stringy. Served it on a Aunt Millie’s Whole Grain Hamburger Bun and topped it with some Heinz Mushroom Brown Gravy.

 

Seasoned Haddock w Whole New Potatoes and Asparagus Cuts and Tip 002
For a side I reheated the Del Monte Whole New Potatoes up. Leftover from last night’s meal. For dessert later tonight a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.

Seasoned Haddock w/ Whole New Potatoes and Asparagus Cuts and Tips

 

Seasoned Haddock w Whole New Potatoes and Asparagus Cuts and Tip 010
Had one of those nights where I had to deal with those Phantom Pains all night. So needless to say I didn’t get very much sleep at all last night. The Pains continued to about Noon today. I got a few things done around the house then I caught up on some much needed sleep! For dinner tonight I prepared a Seasoned Haddock w/ Whole New Potatoes and Asparagus Cuts and Tips

 

 

 

Seasoned Haddock and Risotto 001

I had a fillet of the Haddock in the freezer that I let thaw overnight in the fridge. To prepare it I cut the fillet into smaller pieces. Then rinsed the fillet in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. I then seasoned it with just a bit of Sea Salt and put the pieces in a Hefty Zip Plastic Bag where I then added Zatarain’s Lemon Pepper Breading Mix. Shook until all the pieces were well coated. Shook off the excess and pan fried them in Extra Virgin Olive Oil, frying them about 3 minutes per side until golden brown. Haddock and Zatarain’s Lemon Pepper Mix, the perfect combo. The Zatarain’s Breading and Seasonings are my favorites.

 

Seasoned Haddock w Whole New Potatoes and Asparagus Cuts and Tip 002
For one side I prepared a can of Del Monte Whole New Potatoes. Easy way to get a delicious Potato dish and just as good as fresh! Then I also heated up a cam of Del Monte Asparagus Cuts and Tips.

Food is the Ingredient that binds us together.

Trust in Kim (she will guide thee)

On my ad-free cooking blog I only post recipes that people tell me they love - some are healthy, some are not, but they are all delicious! I record these recipes because I love to cook, and people tell me they appreciate looking at and trying out my recipes. Please write a comment if you have any thoughts about my posts so I know if I should keep experimenting with new recipes, documenting them, and paying to keep this blog advertisement-free. Thanks for the feedback! Enjoy!
