Cumin Spiced Boneless Pork Loin Roast w/ Mashed Potatoes and Golden Hominy

Dinner Tonight: Cumin Spiced Boneless Pork Loin Roast w/ Mashed Potatoes and Golden Hominy

Had a light Breakfast of a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin topped with I Can't
Believe It's Not Butter. A quick morning workout and off to Walmart and Meijer. I wish one store would carry all items, instead you have to go to two or three different stores to find items. Back home got everything put away and cleaned the house, vacuum and dusting. Just puttered around the house after that. For dinner tonight it's a Cumin Spiced Boneless Pork Loin Roast w/ Mashed Potatoes and Golden Hominy.

I purchased the Pork Tenderloin Boneless Roast from Kroger and used only half of it and
froze the other half. So I grabbed the half out of the freezer and let it thaw overnight in the fridge.  To prepare it I’ll need; 1 Pork Tenderloin Roast, 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. I’ve been using the Cumin Spice Rub for a while now, my favorite Rub for Pork. I had come across the recipe a while back on-line, and use it all the time now. It gives the Pork a fantastic crust and great flavor. To prepare it preheat oven to 400°. Combined all the ingredients; rub it all over the Pork. Let stand 20 minutes. To Roast it I used a mall Broiler Pan with a Wire Rack in it. Sprayed the Rack with Pam Cooking Spray and put the Pork on it. I baked it for about 1 hour, until my thermometer registered 145° (slightly pink) Let stand 10 minutes before slicing. This is one delicious Pork Tenderloin Roast! Fantastic combo of Spices, which made one incredible Crust on the Pork with the inside being so tender and moist!

For one side I  reheated the leftover Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes from last night's meal. Just
microwaved for 1 1/2 minutes and serve, always as good as homemade, if not better. Then for another 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. My favorite is the Golden Hominy. If you’ve never tried it do, makes a delicious side dish!
