When roasting a pork loin, cook it with the fat side down for the first 20 minutes, so that the fat begins to liquefy. Then turn the roast over for the balance of the cooking time, and the fat will baste the meat.

 

* Note * I’ve found that this works better with larger roasts than the smaller ones that require less cooking time.

Today’s Menu: Herb Crusted Pork Tenderloin w/ Mashed Potatoes, Boiled Mini Carrots, and Wheat Bread.

 

 

 Pork Loin 006

Big difference in the temperature this morning, 34 degrees! The snow they called for came in as rain then switched to flurries late afternoon. This afternoon we went to purchase our annual Prime Rib Roast for Christmas Day. It was just shy of 8 lbs., the price for Prime Rib just keeps going up every year. For dinner tonight it’s a Herb Crusted Pork Tenderloin w/ Mashed Potatoes, Boiled Mini Carrots, and Wheat Bread.

 

 

 

I preheated the oven to 450 degrees F. and placed the pork loin on a rack in a roasting pan. I then combined Sea Salt, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Minced Garlic, Thyme, Rosemary, and Basil in a small bowl. Then with my fingers, massaged the mixture onto the pork loin, covering all of the meat and fat. I roasted the pork for 20 minutes, make sure you have your stove overhead fan running as it start to smoke somewhat after about 20 minutes. I then reduced the heat to 425 degrees F and roasted it for an additional 20 minutes. Test for doneness using an instant-read thermometer. When the internal temperature reaches 155 degrees F, remove the roast from the oven. Allow it to sit for about 20 minutes before carving. It will continue to cook while it rests. then be ready to slice one delicious and juicy Pork Tenderloin! I left the recipe below. I didn’t have to roast this one as long as the recipe calls for because it a small roast. This is my favorite way to prepare Pork Loin Tenderloin Roasts, just the right amount of Herbs and Garlic and it comes out a perfect medium rare.

 

 

 

For my sides with the Roast I used some leftover Mashed Potatoes from last night’s dinner, Bob Evan’s Brand Mashed Potatoes. I also boiled some Mini Carrots and had a couple of slices of Klosterman Wheat Bread. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Vanilla Bean Frozen Yogurt.

Today’s Menu: Herb Crusted Pork Roast w/ Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Wheat Bread

Herb Crusted Pork Tenderloin 007

 
The weather, still on a roll here! Spent the morning taking my Mom to Jungle Jim’s Market, she wanted Watermelon, Green Beans and a few other items. Of course I wasn’t going to miss the chance to go, love going there always find something new and different. I was amazed at the Ostrich Eggs again! Their big enough to several families. While there I picked up a couple of Boar’s Head Meats to make lunch with and a new type of Wisconsin Sharp Cheddar they had, Wisconsin Sharp Cheddar Small Business Exempt. I’ll have to do some research on this one to find out about it. It’s possibly some of the best Sharp Cheddar I’ve ever had. For dinner tonight I prepared a Herb Crusted Pork Roast w/ Mashed Potatoes, Brown Gravy, Green Beans, and Wheat Bread.

 

 
This is my favorite Pork Loin Roast recipe, Herb Crusted Pork Roast. It seems the more you prepare one of your favorite dishes the better it gets. As you make more you add a pinch of this and that to the point where you have tuned a perfect dish! And this is how this recipe is now. Preheat your oven on 450 degrees, you’ll reduce the heat to 400 after 15 minutes. You combine 2 tablespoons olive oil, Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper (to taste), 4 cloves garlic, minced, 1 teaspoon dried thyme or 2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme leaves, 1 teaspoon dried basil or 2 teaspoons fresh basil leaves, 1 teaspoon dried rosemary or 2 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary, with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper for seasoning. You combine all the ingredients in a bowl and stir until well mixed. You then rub into your Pork Roast which will create the Herb Crust as it bakes. Roast the pork for 15 minutes, then reduce the heat to 400 degrees F and roast for an additional 30 minutes or heated till the correct temperature. Test for doneness using an instant-read thermometer. When the internal temperature reaches 155 degrees F, remove the roast from the oven. Allow it to sit for about 20 minutes before carving. It will continue to cook while it rests. The Pork comes out perfect! The Herb Crust gives that extra taste to make it one delicious Roast! Love this recipe. Both my Mom and Dad agreed, this one perhaps was the best yet (and I agree).

 

 

 

For sides to go with the Roast I prepared some Bob Evans Mashed Potatoes, microwave a total of 6 minutes and their done and just as good as anyone’s homemade Mashed Potatoes. I heated up a small jar of Heinz Gravy/ Pork to top the Mashed Potatoes and sliced Pork with.Then my Mom fixed the Green Beans she had bought this morning. It was a stick to your ribs type of dinner tonight! I also had a couple of slices of Klosterman Wheat Bread. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Chocolate Swirl Frozen Yogurt.

Today’s Menu: Pork Loin Boneless Roast w/ Roasted Carrots and Red Potatoes

 

 
Wow its miserable outside today! I went out to get the paper this morning at 6:30 am and it was so humid then you couldn’t breathe. Pork Loin Boneless Roast 002Very humid and a chance of some severe storms coming our way later tonight, have to keep the weather radio on tonight. For dinner tonight I prepared a Pork Loin Boneless Roast that was rubbed with JB’s Fat Boy Premium All Purpose Rub. Dinner; Pork Loin Boneless Roast w/ Roasted Carrots and Red Potatoes.

 

 
The Roast was about 2.5 lbs and Rubbed with JB’s Fat Boy Premium All Purpose Rub. A perfect blend of spices for Pork or Beef. To prepare the Roast heat your oven to 375 degrees F. Place roast in shallow roasting pan and roast for 45-60 minutes. Roast until internal temperature on a thermometer reads 145 degrees F. Remove roast from oven; let rest about 10 minutes. I took the juice and scrappings from the pan and poured them back over the Roast as it was resting. The Roast came out mouth watering delicious! The flavor of the Roast with the rub just incredible.

 

 
For a side to go with the Roast i prepared Roasted Red potatoes and Carrots. This dish also was baked at 375 degrees F. To prepare it I needed Red Potatoes, 8 to 10 small to medium size, Carrots, 1 bunch, Dried or Fresh Sage, 2 to 3 tablespoons, Dried or Fresh Rosemary, 1 to 2 tablespoons, Dried or Fresh Thyme, 1 to 2 tablespoons, Vegetable Broth, 1 cup, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper to taste. To prepare it I scrubbed the potatoes and cut them into quarters. Then rinsed and peeled the carrots, slicing them into thick rounds. Then toss the vegetables and herbs together in big roaster pan. Season with salt and pepper and drizzle with a little olive oil. Stir it all together until the vegetable are well coated with the oil. Add the broth. I use it to keep them from getting too browned and sticking to the pan. It also added a little extra flavor. Bake at 375 for 45 minutes to an hour, or until they’re tender. Stir them up in the roaster pan to mix all the herbs, oil and remaining broth. Paired with the Roast a delicious and hearty dinner. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Double Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Pork Loin Boneless Roast w/ Green Beans and Bacon and Ranch Red Potatoes

 

Well this is the coolest Memorial day weekend that I can remember in quite sometime. It was in the low 40’s this morning with high of in the low 60’s but with a real cool breeze, but mostly sunny! Started the Holiday off with a delicious dinner, a Seasoned Rubbed Pork Loin Boneless Roast w/ Green Beans and Bacon and Ranch Red Potatoes.

 

 

I purchased another of the Pork Loin Boneless Roast with a JB’s Fat Boy Premium Rub already on it from Kroger yesterday. The last Boneless Pork Roast 003one was incredible!! To prepare it I laid the Roast out for about 20 minutes to get it to room temperature. I then opened the Roast up and applied about 3/4 cup of JB’s fat Boy BBQ Sauce to it, rubbed it in real good, and rolled it back up. I placed the roast in a shallow pan and roast in a 350 degrees F. oven for 1 hour (about 20 minutes per pound), until internal temperature on a thermometer reads 145 degrees F. Removed it from oven; let rest about 10 minutes before slicing to served. It will serve about 6-7, with leftovers! The Roast came out moist and delicious, the JB’s Fat Boy Rub along with the Sauce gave it a fantastic flavor. The juice and drippings from the Roast were incredible! I also had a side of the JB’s Fat Boy Haugwaush Sauce on the side for dipping but used very little because I kept readding the juices and drippings to the Roast and it needed no other flavor or seasoning.

 

 

I made a couple of sides to go with the Pork Roast, Idahoan Steakhouse Bacon and Ranch Red Potatoes and Cut Green Beans. I prepared the new one from Idahoan; Idahoan Steakhouse Bacon and Ranch Red Potatoes. I really love using these Idahoan Products, they’re all delicious and so easy to prepare and this new one is no different. Great seasoning and taste and love the added Bacon and Ranch to it. Another great option from Idahoan. the Green Beans were Del Monte Cut Green Beans. I also baked a loaf of La Brea Artisan Multi Grain Loaf Bread. For dessert my favorite treat, Jif Reduced Fat Creamy Peanut Butter! I had Peanut Butter on Ritz Whole Grain Crackers.

 

 

 

 

Idahoan Steakhouse Bacon and Ranch Red Potatoes

Idahoan Steakhouse Bacon & Ranch Red Potatoes start with world-famous Idaho® red potatoes in a premium ranch sauce, then finish with a real bacon topping! These Steakhouse Bacon & Ranch Red Potatoes will add premium restaurant quality flavor to any meal. Gotta love real bacon!

Sort of a long day, I had some routine blood work done a couple of days ago while at a checkup with my new family doctor and I was Boneless Pork Roast 003told today that the blood work came back showing an elevated Liver count. Which is more than likely being caused by the Cholesterol Meds I’m taking. But when I hear of something off or not normal it always brings back some real bad memories. Staying positive, go back to the Doc on Wednesday. Then on top of that I got a letter stating that my Anthem Medicare Supplement insurance was going up $12.02 a month. Plus because I’m not 65 no other options are available so I’m at their mercy, pay it or don’t have any. I’ve had better days! on a more positive note, for dinner I prepared a Pork Loin Boneless Roast w/ Green Beans and Mashed Potatoes.

 
I purchased the Roast from Kroger yesterday, a Pork Loin Boneless Roast with a JB’s Fat Boy Premium Rub already on it. To prepare it I laid the Roast out for about 20 minutes to get it to room temperature. I placed the roast in a shallow pan and roast in a 350 degrees F. oven for 1 hour (about 20 minutes per pound), until internal temperature on a thermometer reads 145 degrees F. Removed it from oven; let rest about 10 minutes before slicing to served. It will serve about 6-7, with leftovers! The Roast came out moist and delicious, the JB’s Fat Boy Rub gave it a great flavor. The juice and drippings from the Roast were incredible! I also had a side of the JB’s Fat Boy Haugwaush Sauce on the side for dipping but used very little because I kept readding the juices and drippings to the Roast and it needed no other flavor or seasoning.

 
I made a couple of sides to go with the Pork Roast, Mashed Potatoes, Brown Mushroom Gravy, and Cut Green Beans. The Mashed Potatoes were my favorite, Bob Evans Mashed Potatoes. The Gravy was Heinz Brown Mushroom Gravy and the Beans were Del Monte Less Sodium Cut Green Beans. A hearty and delicious dinner to end sort of a bad day. For dessert later a Skinny Cow Ice Cream Fudge Bar.

Today’s Menu: Herb Crusted Pork Roast w/ Sliced New Potatoes, Green Beans, and Baked Harvest Grain Bread

Herb Crusted Pork Roast 005

 
Well my Dad was released this afternoon from the physical rehab center after a few weeks finally. It’s great having him back home. I wanted to make a good welcome dinner for him and my Mom so I prepared a Herb Crusted Pork Roast w/ Sliced New Potatoes, Green Beans, and Baked Harvest Grain Bread. I had everything timed perfect for their arrival home, except knowing they had stopped and eaten at Wendy’s! So much for a surprise dinner.
Anyway I prepared my favorite Pork Loin Roast recipe, Herb Crusted Pork Roast. You combine 2 tablespoons olive oil, 4 cloves garlic, minced, 1 teaspoon dried thyme or 2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme leaves, 1 teaspoon dried basil or 2 teaspoons fresh basil leaves, 1 teaspoon dried rosemary or 2 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary, with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper for seasoning. You combine all the ingredients except the Salt and Pepper in a bowl and stir until well mixed. You then rub into your Pork Roast which will create the Herb Crust as it bakes. Roast the pork for 30 minutes, then reduce the heat to 425 degrees F and roast for an additional hour. Test for doneness using an instant-read thermometer. When the internal temperature reaches 155 degrees F, remove the roast from the oven. Allow it to sit for about 20 minutes before carving. It will continue to cook while it rests. The Pork comes out perfect! The Herb Crust gives that extra taste to make it one delicious Roast! Love this recipe.
For side dishes for the Roast I prepared Del Monte Sliced New Potatoes and also Del Monte Low Sodium Cut Green Beans. I also baked a small loaf of Meijer Bakery Harvest Grain Bread. Then for dessert/snack later something I haven’t had in 10 years or more, Baked Soft Pretzels Bites. Their the Super Pretzel Brand, just bake them at 400 degrees for 12 minutes. Served with French’s Yellow Mustard.

When roasting a pork loin, cook it with the fat side down for the first 20 minutes, so that the fat begins to liquefy. Then turn the roast over for the balance of the cooking time, and the fat will baste the meat.

Today’s Menu: Baked Country Style Pork Loin Boneless Ribs w/ White Sweet Corn, Baked Potato, and Whole Grain Bread

One last warm day before it’s predicted to turn a lot cooler! Started the day off by going to Costco and loaded up on some great meat and fish Items. We’ll be having Top Sirloin Steak, Pork Chops, Country – Style Boneless Pork Loin Ribs, and Tilapia for a while, found some really great buys today. Also found out they’ll be getting their Prime Rib in for the Holiday’s on Nov. 21. on to dinner.

 

 

I prepared Baked Country Style Pork Loin Boneless Ribs w/ White Sweet Corn, Baked Potato, along with Whole Grain Bread. I believe it’s the first time I prepared the Country – Style Ribs.Their really a nice lean cut of Pork. I preheated the oven on 325 degrees. I started off by making a rub for them consisting of 1/2 teaspoon of Roasted Ground Cumin, 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Salt, 1/2 teaspoon Parsley Flakes, and a healthy couple of shakes of Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper. Made sure the Rub covered all sides of the Ribs and then basted them with JB’s Fat Boy Haugwaush BBQ Sauce. I baked them for 1 hr and 30 minutes. I basted them every 30 minutes with the Haugwaush. The Ribs came out fantastic! Moist and tender and full of flavor. I’ll be having these again soon.

 

 

For my side dishes I had Green Giant White Sweet Corn, a Baked Potato, and Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. The White Sweet Corn was leftover from last night’s meal so I just warmed that up in the microwave. For my Baked Potato I topped that with Sea Salt, Ground Pepper, and I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. For dessert later I’m sticking with just some fruit, a Mini Banana and some Honey Crisp Apple slices.

What Are Country Style Ribs?

*Country-style ribs – Country-style ribs are cut from the blade end of the loin close to the pork shoulder. They are meatier than other rib cuts. They contain no rib bones.
