Leave the meat alone……

 

It’s always important to let a roast beef, pork, lamb or poultry, sit a little while before carving. That allows the juices to retreat back into the meat. If you carve a roast too soon, much of its goodness will spill out onto the carving board.

Today’s Menu: Roasted Garlic and Cracked Black Pepper Pork Tenderloin w/ Roasted cauliflower and Cut Green Beans

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a Breakfast sandwich. I toasted a couple of slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain roasted-garlic-and-cracked-black-pepper-pork-tenderloin-011Bread. Then, Mom had a package of Bob Evans Pork Sausage Patties and I fried one the Patties. Been a while since I had one of these. They fry up easy and make one good Sandwich. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Green Tea. Mom went to Church so I had to stay home to keep an eye out on Dad. So after Breakfast I cleaned the house and did a load of laundry for Mom. Had everything done by noon so I had Lunch, I had Smoked Salmon and Ritz Whole Wheat Crackers. For the rest of the afternoon, watching NFL Football. So for Dinner tonight I prepared Roasted Garlic and Cracked Black Pepper Pork Tenderloin w/ Roasted Cauliflower and Cut Green Beans

Hard to beat a good Pork Roast on a Sunday Afternoon! I’m using a Smithfield – Roasted Garlic and Cracked Black Pepper Fresh Pork Tenderloin. Kroger had them on sale so I picked one up. It comes already seasoned, Roasted Garlic and Cracked Black Pepper. I just added a bit of McCormick Grinder Sea Salt.

To prepare it I preheated the oven at 425 degrees. I then took a small roast pan and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray and 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. As I said the Roast is already seasoned with Roasted Garlic and Cracked Black Pepper, I lightly Salted it with some McCormick Grinder Sea Salt. I then baked until I had an internal temperature of 150 degrees, a total of about 31 minutes. Very impressed with the Smithfield Roast. Seasoned perfectly, excellent taste, and very moist!

To go with my Pork Roast, I Sauteed some Baby Bella Mushrooms. Seasoned them with Ground Thyme, Ground Rosemary, Ground Roasted Cumin, and McCormick Grinder Sea Salt. I love having Mushrooms with about any dish. Easily prepared and low calorie and low carb side dish.

 

 

 

 
I also prepared some Roasted Cauliflower. I used a package of Kroger Packaged Cauliflower Florets. So I made some Buffalo Sirloin Steak w Buffalo Roasted Cauliflower and Cut Gree 007Buffalo Cauliflower with them! To prepare them I needed; 1 Package of Cauliflower Florets, 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil, sea salt and pepper to taste, 1/4 cup or more) hot sauce, and blue cheese or ranch dressing for dipping. Then to make it is really easy I just tossed the cauliflower florets in the oil, seasoned with salt and pepper, arranged in a single layer on a baking sheet and roasted in a preheated 400 degree oven until lightly golden brown, about 20-30 minutes. Then, the good part, toss the cauliflower in the hot sauce! I served it with Litehouse Lite Bleu Cheese Dressing/Dip for dipping. It’s one delicious side dish! The recipe and website link is at the end of the post.

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin w/ Roasted Savory Herb Potatoes and Whole Baby Carrots

 

 

cumin-spiced-pork-tenderloin-w-roasted-savory-herb-potatoes-and-003
To start the morning off I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and topped it with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. I also had my early morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast and my morning workout I headed of to Meijer. Mom needed some items as I did also. Cold morning, in the 20’s with a cold breeze. For the day it was a high around 45 degrees and partly sunny. After Meijer I had to stop by the bank and stopped and got gas. Not a lot going on this afternoon so I relaxed and got caught up on shows I had recorded. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin w/ Roasted Savory Herb Potatoes and Whole Baby Carrots.

 
Most of the time when I’m preparing Pork I use the Cumin Spiced Rub, as I did tonight. I had the Simple Truth Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin Red Potatoes Sugar Snap Peas 008Tenderloin Roast, Kroger Brand, in the freezer, I sat it in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare it I’ll need; 1 Simple Truth Pork Tenderloin, For the Rub: 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. Bake at 375° for 15 minutes or until a thermometer registers 145° (slightly pink), turning after 7 minutes. 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!

 

Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w Savory Herb Potatoes and Cut Green Bea 012

While at Meijer I picked up a package of the Little Potato Company Savory Herb Potatoes. I had these a few times now and really enjoyed them. The Potatoes come in a microwavable tray. Just pop the tray in the microwave for five minutes and mix in the seasoning pack and you have a nutritious and tasty Potato Dish. These are definitely a good item to have in the pantry! So easy to prepare and no clean up.

 

 

 

 

Buffalo Tenderloin-Tips w Noodles and Whole Baby Carrots 011
Then I also heated up a can of Kroger Brand Whole Baby Carrots. These are so much easier to prepare than boiling fresh Baby Carrots, and they taste just as fresh and good. I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. Then for Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

Today’s Menu: Cubed Pork Steak Sandwich w/ Baked Crinkle Fries

 

 
For Breakfast this morning I reheated the Skillet Potatoes and Ham leftover from Breakfast yesterday. I used 1 Cubed Pork Steak Sandwich w Baked Fries 007package of Simply Potatoes Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes and a package of Meijer Diced Ham to prepare it. Just cook the Potatoes according to the package instructions and with about 5 minutes of cooking time left add the Diced Ham. I topped everything with a fried Sunny Side Up Egg and a sprinkle of Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar. I went out to get the Sunday Morning Papers and it is down right cold out there! About 24 degrees with one cold wind blowing, chill factor in the teens. Had a of 40 degrees and cloudy out for the day. After I had Breakfast I went to McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom and Dad. Not a lot to do today so I got the paper shredder out and shredded a few months of past bills and old insurance statements. After that it was an afternoon of NFL Football. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cubed Pork Steak Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

 
I had a of package of Cubed Pork Steak that I purchased from Walmart a day ago. To prepare it I got the big three of Cubed Pork Steak Sandwich Shake and Bake 001breading out to bread it with; Flour, Egg Beater’s, and Panko Bread Crumbs. I seasoned the Steak with Sea Salt and Black Ground Pepper. Next I seasoned the Flour with Hungarian Paprika and rolled the Cube Pork in that and shook off the excess. Then I dipped it in the Egg Beater’s shaking off the excess and then pressed both sides in the Shake and Bake Seasoned Panko Bread Crumbs, making sure both sides was well covered. I heated up a medium size skillet, that I drizzled with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, on medium high heat. Added my Cubed Pork and fried about 4 minutes per side, till each side was golden brown. The Walmart Cubed Pork Steaks were very good, tender and moist.

 

Cubed Pork Steak Sandwich w Baked Fries 001
The Cubed Pork Steak came out delicious! Moist and very tender with a good flavor from the Paprika and all the other ingredients. Served it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Hamburger Bun and topped with some French’s Brown Spicy Brown Mustard. I fried both patties in the package, I’ll have the other one for Lunch tomorrow. The Pork and Panko are a perfect match and the Spicy Brown Mustard tops everything off. First time I had tried the Walmart Cubed Pork Steaks. They were very good, tender and moist.

Today’s Menu: BBQ Pork Shoulder Roast Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

 

 

bbq-pork-shoulder-roast-sandwich-w-baked-fries-010
I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam for Breakfast. Also had the morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I went Meijer for some items I needed. I’ve been noticing the price of Tea just keeps going up and up! I was at Walmart last week and it’s now $2.36 a box up from $2.18 a box about a year ago and at Meijer its up to $2.68 a box. Of course Kroger has the highest price at $3.12 a box! And it’s not just Tea that’s rising in cost its everything practically. Having to really watch for sales and coupons. Outside today we were near a record high out today, 81 degrees! Highs back in the 60’s by the weekend though. Raked what leaves I could with the help of my neighbor. Still a lot of leaves left in some of the bigger trees herein the neighborhood but the smaller ones are almost bare now. For Dinner tonight I prepared a BBQ Pork Shoulder Roast Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

 

bbq-pork-shoulder-roast-sandwich-w-baked-fries-001
A while back I tried the Swift Premium Dry Rubbed Carnitas Boneless Petite Pork Shoulder Roast , which turned out so good! I had purchased 2 of them a while back and still had one left in the freezer. So I sat it in the fridge overnight to thaw for use for tonight’s Dinner, BBQ Pork Shoulder Roast Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

 
For the BBQ Pork Shoulder Roast Sandwiches I’ll be using the Swift Premium Dry Rubbed Carnitas Boneless Petite bbq-pork-shoulder-roast-sandwich-w-baked-fries-005Pork Shoulder Roast again! And preparing it one of my favorite ways, the Slow Cooker. It’s a super easy recipe to make. Start by lining my Slow Cooker with a Reynolds Slow Cooker Liner. Using the liner makes for little or no clean up. Next, removing meat from package. Place the Roast in slow cooker with 1 inch of water in bottom. Then across the top I added a thin coat of Jack Daniel’s Honey SmokeHouse BBQ Sauce. Cover and cook on HIGH for 4 hours or until fork tender. Then remove from slow cooker and allow to cool slightly. Next shred the meat with two forks, or a pair of Bear Claws which is what I used, in a large bowl and add the BBQ Sauce. You can add the BBQ Sauce now or you can add the Sauce on to your Sandwich instead. I used Jack Daniel’s Honey SmokeHouse BBQ Sauce, you can always use your favorite. I served the sandwich on a Healthy Life Whole Grain Sandwich Bun The Pork comes out incredible! As the other Swift Premium product it came out moist, juicy, and delicious! These products are so easy to prepare and top quality. Another great product to have handy in the frig or freezer.

 

Grilled Cheese and Baked Fries 003
To go with the BBQ Pulled Pork sandwiches I baked some Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. I seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 18 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, excellent Shoestring Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans/Potatoes

Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

For my Breakfast I toasted a couple of Eggo Waffles and had that morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Shortly Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans and P 007after Breakfast I headed out to Walmart. You have to go as early as possible when shopping at Walmart if you are dependent on using the electric shopping carts. Walmart has very few of them and if you go later in the day the batteries are usually dead because no one plugs them up to recharge. Anyway I went there to pick up some blankets and sleeping bags. Our Church runs a Meal and Aid center for the homeless and the Church has requested a need for those items with Winter approaching. It breaks my heart to think that people are in need of these basic items just to survive! After Walmart I stopped at Costco and picked up a few cases of canned goods for the Church and a local Homeless Center (Reach Out Lakota). Showers and only a high of 59 degrees out today, Winter is coming! So for dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w/ Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans/Potatoes.

 

 

Cumin Spiced Pork Chop w Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans and P 002
I grabbed a couple of Pork Chops from the freezer, that I had purchased from Meijer, and let them thaw overnight in the fridge.

 

 

 

 

 

Then to prepare my Chops I’ll need; The Cumin Spiced Rub which consists of; 1 tbsp Roasted Cumin, 1 tsp Garlic Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans and 005Powder, 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 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.

 

Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w Golden Hominy and Harvest Apples 002
For a side dish I opened up a can of one of my favorite side dishes, Kroger Brand Golden Hominy. 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!

 

 

Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans and 012
Then for another side dish I heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans and Potatoes. I really like using the Del Monte Cut Green Beans and New Potatoes, contains 2 of my favorite vegetables (Green Beans and Potatoes). I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. For dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Divine Chocolate Delight Ice Cream Bar.
