Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin w/ Roasted Potatoes and Sugar Snap Peas

 

 

Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin  Red Potatoes Sugar Snap Peas 011
Not a good day out there today. Had the 3 H’s going on- Hazy, Hot, and Humid! It’s about 94 degrees out and very humid. They are warning people with breathing problems to stay in today. Had a light Breakfast and my morning workout. Cleaned and straightened the pantry and then sorted out our spice drawer, had to pitch a couple that had expired. For dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin w/ Roasted Potatoes and Sugar Snap Peas.

 

 

 

Most of the time when I’m preparing Pork I use the Cumin Spiced Rub, as I did tonight. I had the Simple Truth Pork Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin  Red Potatoes Sugar Snap Peas 008Tenderloin 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!

 
I make a Potato Dish quite often, tried this new Roasted Potato Dish that uses Turkey Bacon with the Potatoes. To Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin  Red Potatoes Sugar Snap Peas 004make the Potato Dish I’ll need; 2 Slices of Jennie – O Turkey Bacon, Sea Salt Ground Black Pepper, 1/2 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and quartered Small red Potatoes. Heat a cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add Turkey Bacon to pan; cook 5 minutes or until crisp. Remove Bacon from pan; crumble. Add Potatoes to drippings in pan; cook 4 minutes or until lightly browned, turning once. Then bake at 375° for 12 minutes or until Potatoes are fork tender. Sprinkle Bacon and Parsley over Potatoes; serve with pork. Excellent Potato Dish. Fantastic side with Pork.

 

 

Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin  Red Potatoes Sugar Snap Peas 002
Then I also prepared some Sauteed Sugar Snap Peas. To prepare them I heated 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Olive Oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Added the Sugar Snap Peas, tossing occasionally for 5 to 6 minutes, until the Sugar Snap Peas were crisp tender. Another favorite Side Dish of mine. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.

When making a Meatloaf keep this in mind – The higher the grade of ground meat, the less fat and shrinkage will result. However, keep in mind that less fat means less flavor and moistness.

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

 

Cubed Pork Steak Sandwich w Baked Fries 004
Up early and hungry! Started my day off with 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, 1 Egg Sunny Side Up, 2 slices of Wheat Toast, and a hot cup of Bigelow decaf Green Tea. Love a good Breakfast! Did my morning workout and started a load of laundry. Went outside and swept all leaves off the drive and ramp. I got to get a cordless leaf blower, my next helpful investment. For dinner tonight I prepared a Cubed Pork Steak Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

 
I purchased the Cubed Pork Steak at Kroger. To make I’ll need; 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Sea Salt, Ground Cubed Pork Steak Sandwich w Baked Fries 002Black Pepper, 1/2 tablespoon Flour, and 1/2 cup Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs. To prepare it; I sprayed a medium size skillet with Pam Cooking Spray and added the Olive Oil and preheated the pan on medium heat. As the pan was heating I seasoned the Cubed Pork with Salt and Pepper, dredged it through the flour, and rolled it in the Bread Crumbs. I then fried it for 4 minutes a side. it came out a perfect golden brown. The Bread Crumbs gave it a good crust while the meat was moist and tender! To serve it, I used a Kroger Lite Wheat Hamburger Bun. Topped the Pork with a bit Sweet Hot Stone Ground Mustard and Boston Bib Lettuce. One delicious Sandwich! They were big enough Steaks that I’ll get 4 Sandwiches out of them, I’ll use the others for Breakfast or lunch.

 

For a side I baked some Ore Ida Steak Fries, served these with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup for dipping. For dessert later a bowl of Del Monte No Sugar Added Slices.

EVENT LOCATION
The Square at Union Center
9285 Centre Pointe Dr

WEST CHESTER TWP.

– The smell of barbecue and the sounds of the blues will fill The Square at Union Centre this weekend.

That’s where the Rotary Club of West Chester/Liberty will host its fifth annual Buckeye BBQ Fest fundraiser featuring a Kansas City BBQ Society-sanctioned competition for the third year.

“It’s really exciting to see how it’s grown – both the barbecue and quality of music,” said Sandy Likes, marketing chairwoman for the event and a member of the Rotary’s board. “The barbecue teams are really into their barbecue.”

The festival runs from 5-11 p.m. Friday and from noon to 11 p.m. Saturday at The Square, 9285 Centre Pointe Drive. Admission is $5 for adults; children ages 12 and younger are admitted free.

About 36 teams will be competing for cash, awards and bragging rights – plus an entry into the lottery for admission into the Jack Daniel’s World Champion Invitational Barbecue.

Teams will be competing in several categories including pork ribs, pork shoulder, beef brisket and chicken.

A separate People’s Choice event from 2-4 p.m. Saturday offers a $15 card that allows spectators to sample pulled pork from 12 competitors and vote for their top choice.

There will be non-stop music both days through a partnership between the Rotary Club and the Cincy Blues Society. The society arranged for performances from 10 different bands.

Headlining Friday night is the Stacy Mitchhart Band, which begins its two-hour show at 8:45 p.m. The Noah Wotherspoon Band is Saturday’s main band, beginning its performance at 9 p.m.

About 50 vendors – including 14 selling barbecue – will be at the festival this year selling pies, kettle corn, ice cream and other goodies. There will be a beer garden on site featuring micro-beers and wine. Non-alcoholic beverages will also be sold.

There will be a Kids Zone with face painting, inflatables and a 12-animal, free, petting zoo from noon to 7 p.m. Saturday. Tickets for the inflatables cost $2 each; six for $5; or 15 for $10.
