Spicy Cuban Rotisserie Chicken
A whole chicken is marinated several hours in a zesty Cuban-style herb and lime juice marinade and roasted on a rotisserie spit.

Recipe Ingredients:
1 large broiler-fryer whole chicken
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 shallot, minced
2 large cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon grated lime peel
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
Cilantro sprigs for garnish
Lime wedges for accompaniment

Cooking Directions:
1 – Truss chicken or tie drumsticks together.
2 – In large glass bowl, mix together lime juice, olive oil, shallot, garlic, lime peel, oregano, salt, cumin and pepper. Place chicken in mixture, turning to coat completely. Cover and refrigerate several hours or overnight, turning chicken several times.

Storing spices…..

To prolong the life of your spices, keep them in a cool, dark place. Don’t store them on top of the stove, as heat and humidity can alter their flavor.

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

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

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a couple of Nuti Grain Eggos and heated up a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Sausage Links. I also made a cup of the Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside its showers and thunderstorms with a high of 68 degrees. Cleaned the house today, dusted and ran the vacuum. That was about it for the day. So for dinner tonight I prepared Cumin Spiced Pork Chops w/ Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans and Potatoes.

 

 

 

 

 

On my last visit to Meijer I picked up a couple of huge Bone – In Pork Loin Chops and had them in the freezer. I grabbed 1 of the Chops from the freezer and let it thaw overnight in the fridge. Then to prepare my Chop I’ll need; The Cumin Spiced Rub which consists of 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 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 pork to pan; cook 3 minutes, browning both sides. From the stove to the oven and bake at 400° for 20 minutes until the thermometer registered 150° (slightly pink), turning after 5 minutes. Let stand 10 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!

 

 

 

I love the trio of a Pork Chop, Golden Hominy, and Green Beans/ Potatoes. I have these 2 sides quite often when having Pork Chops. For a side dish I opened up a can of one of my favorite side dishes, Kroger Brand Golden Hominy. For those that 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. My favorite is the Golden Hominy. If you’ve never tried it do, makes a delicious side dish!

 

 

 

 

 

Then I also heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans and Potatoes. As everything was cooking I also Baked a Loaf of Garlic Loaf Bread. This has become the family’s favorite Baked Bread. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

 

 

 

 

 

 


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.

Slow-Cooker “Corned Beef” and Cabbage
This warming slow-cooker stew has all the flavors of corned beef and cabbage but with much less sodium, plus it’s ready in half the time of traditional corned beef and cabbage.

Vegetarian Pressed Italian Sandwich
Typically, pressed sandwiches are a celebration of many meats. Here, we’ve opted for grilled eggplant slices, artichokes and arugula to make a satisfying vegetarian version. Giardiniera, a type of Italian relish typically made from bell peppers, celery, carrots, cauliflower, olives, vinegar and spices, perks up the flavors of any sandwich. You can use convenient prepared giardiniera or homemade. Choose a hot or mild version, depending on your preference for heat………
