Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin w/ Roasted Potatoes and Sugar Snap Peas

Dinner Tonight: Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin w/ Roasted Potatoes and Sugar Snap Peas

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 Tenderloin 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 make 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.

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.
