Kitchen Hint of the Day!

Our friend, the Onion…….

 

Yellow and white onions can be kept for a longer amount of time than the red ones, as they have a lower sugar content. Store in an open space that’s cool and dry, and away from bright light, which can make them bitter. Don’t store them anywhere that may become damp.

Today’s Menu: Cuban Hash w/ Tossed Salad

 

Cuban Hash w Tossed Salad 011
Well the headaches aren’t as bad finally, still nagging though. For Breakfast I had a couple of Eggo’s and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Finished up some laundry for Mom and then started on a few things around the house that needed done. The weather is leaving no doubts that Summer has set in the Ohio Valley. Hot and Humid is the forecast until at least next week. Friday through Sunday. Highs in the 90’s, extremely high humidity, and a heat index well over 100 degrees. But as hot as is it’s better than a blowing snow and below zero weather! i took Mom’s car up and had it washed and the inside cleaned and swept. Besides that I stayed indoors most of the day. For Dinner tonight I prepared Cuban Hash w/ Tossed Salad.

 

Came across this recipe on my favorite Pork Recipe site, Pork Be Inspired (http://www.porkbeinspired.com/) If you’ve never visited the Pork Be Inspired website, it’s full of delicious Pork Recipes along with Pork Cooking Tips, Pork Nutrition, and about anything you need to know about Pork!

 

Cuban Hash w Tossed Salad 001
So for Dinner tonight, it’s another new recipe, its Cuban Hash. To make this dish I’ll need; 1 Pound Ground Pork, 2 Teaspoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1 Cup Chopped Red Onion, 2 Cups Simply Potatoes Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes, 1 1/4 Cups Frontera Tomatillo Salsa, 1 Cup Meijer Frozen Sweet Corn (Thawed), 1/4 Cup Cilantro, and 1/4 Cup Supremo Queso Fresco Cheese (Crumbled). You know this has the makings of something good!

 

 

 

Cuban Hash w Tossed Salad 004
I love these I skillet meals, makes for one easy clean up! To prepare it start by heating the olive oil over medium heat in a large skillet; add the onion and sauté for about 5 minutes. Add ground pork, breaking into crumbles with the back of a spoon and turning frequently until browned on all sides.

Cuban Hash w Tossed Salad 006

Add the potatoes, salsa and corn; stir and cook 8-10 minutes or until heated through.Fold in cilantro and sprinkle with cheese. Then it’s time to enjoy a Cuban Hash Dinner! Flavor upon flavor this dish is loaded with it! Anything Pork I love, then the Tomatillo Sauce, Corn, Cilantro, and Queso Fresco just elevates it even more! Excellent Keeper Recipe.

Cuban Hash w Tossed Salad 009

To go with The Hash I had went to Kroger earlier today and I got a salad from the Salad Bar. Combined some Ice-Berg Lettuce, Mushrooms, Chick Peas, Olives, and Cheese. For a dressing I used Kraft Classic Catalina Fat Free Dressing. I don’t have Salads very often. My body has problems breaking down leafy green vegetables. I wish I could have them more often, I miss having a good salad! For dessert later a Skinny Cow Chocolate Truffle Ice Cream Bar.

CUBAN HASH
