Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin w/Roasted Butternut Squash and Golden Hominy

 

 

To start my morning off I prepared Turkey Goetta, Hash Browns, and Toast. For the Turkey Goetta I used Glier’s Turkey Goetta, best by far! I just sliced a few slices off and lightly fried them in Extra Light Olive Oil. Then I also prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns. I also toasted a slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread that I topped with some Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I did a couple of loads of laundry. Then after Lunch I took my car up and had it washed and I vacuumed the inside. Then went to the ATM and then dropped off a few letters at the Post Office. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin w/ Roasted Butternut Squash and Golden Hominy.

 

 

 

 

I purchased the Simple Truth Pork Tenderloin from Kroger yesterday, 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!

 

 

 

Then for one side I prepared some Roasted Butternut Squash, easy recipe for some delicious Butternut Squash! I purchased 1 small package of Diced Butternut Squash at Kroger. They sell packages of it that they dice up. This is a lot easier than peeling and seeding one yourself, especially if you don’t have a good knife to cut it. I’ll need; 1 package of Diced Butternut Squash, Walnut Pieces, 1 tablespoons Extra Light Olive Oil, 1 1/2 teaspoons McCormick Grinder Sea Salt, and 1 teaspoon McCormick Grinder Peppercorn Medley.

 

 

 

 

 

To prepare it; Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Place the Squash on a sheet pan and drizzle with the Olive Oil, add the Walnut Pieces, Salt, and Peppercorn and toss well. Arrange the squash in one layer and roast for 25 to 30 minutes, until the Squash is tender, turning once with a spatula. And done, very easy to prepare. With the small amount of Seasoning and Olive Oil, it really brings out the flavor of Butternut Squash! The Walnuts work perfect with the Squash. I really love Butternut Squash!

 

 

 

 

 

For another 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/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin Fillet w/ Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans

 

 

To start my morning off toasted a couple Nutri Grain Eggos and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 60 degrees and cloudy out today. Did some light cleaning around the house and then a load of laundry. Later on got the Hand-Vac out vacuumed my car insides and the got Mom’s car for her and cleaned the windows inside and out on both cars. That was about it for the day. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin Fillet w/ Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans.

 

 

 

 

 

I had no clue what to have for Dinner so I did some digging into the freezer. I came across a Meijer Pork Tenderloin Fillet and I had my Dinner, Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin. I sat it in the fridge to thaw overnight.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.

Then I also heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Just empty the can into a sauce pan and heat until heated through. I just love Green Beans, all Beans! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn along with 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.

To start my morning off I prepared French Toast and Sausage. For the French Toast I used Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, Egg Beater’s, Ground Nutmeg, and Ground Cinnamon.

One of America’s Favorites – Pork Tenderloin Sandwich

November 26, 2018 at 6:02 AM | Posted in One of America's Favorites | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

Pork tenderloin sandwich (large)

The pork tenderloin sandwich contains a breaded and fried cutlet similar to the Wiener Schnitzel and is popular in the Midwest region of the United States, especially in the state of Indiana. The sandwich can first be traced back to the Nick’s Kitchen restaurant in Huntington, Indiana (near Fort Wayne).

The primary differences between a Pork Tenderloin sandwich and a Wiener Schnitzel are that the Pork Tenderloin sandwich is made exclusively using pork loin and it is deep fried instead of pan fried. The Pork Tenderloin sandwich is also usually served on a bun. There is a grilled variant of the Pork Tenderloin that omits the breading and grills the tenderloin instead of deep frying it.

A Pork Tenderloin sandwich is traditionally prepared from a thinly sliced piece of pork tenderloin, hammered thin with a meat mallet. The meat is then dipped in flour, eggs and breadcrumbs or crushed saltine crackers before being deep fried in oil. After cooking, the prepared Pork Tenderloin is then served on a hamburger bun, with the meat overlapping the bun considerably. The sandwich can be served with condiments such as mustard, lettuce, onions, pickles, and mayonnaise.

The sandwich is usually served with a side of french fries, though onion rings are often provided instead.

The primary variant of the prepared pork tenderloin is a grilled prepared pork tenderloin. This is a healthier variation as the pork is grilled instead of fried. The meat is seasoned or marinated and then placed on a grill. After cooking, the meat is placed on a hamburger bun and topped with condiments.
