Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin w/ Mashed Potatoes and Italian Cut Green Beans

Dinner Tonight: Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin w/ Mashed Potatoes and Italian Cut Green Beans

For Breakfast I had Scrambled Eggs, Jennie - O Turkey Breakfast sausage Links, Aunt Millie's
Toasted Whole Grain Toast, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Good way to start a rainy Monday Morning. Lot of rain today, temps in the 50's. All caught up on house work and laundry so did some much needed cleaning on and around my computer desk. Got that done and did some cleaning of the computer, deleted some old files and programs. Not much else going on today. For dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin w/ Mashed Potatoes and Italian Cut Green Beans.

I’ve been using the Cumin Spiced Rub for quite some time now. I purchased the Simple Truth Pork
Tenderloin from Kroger and had it in the freezer. I let it thaw overnight in the fridge. To make the dish I’ll need; 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1 pork Tenderloin, 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. From the stove to the oven; Bake at 350° for 15 minutes or until a thermometer registers 155° (slightly pink), turning after 7 minutes. Remove from the skillet into a platter or dish and 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!

For one side I heated some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Microwave for a total of 6 minutes and done.  Then for another side dish I heated a can of Allens Cut Italian Green Beans. To prepare them just empty the can into a small sauce pan and simmer until heated. Just season with a bit of Sea Salt and it’s ready! I could have Beans every day and never get tired of having them. For dessert later a Skinny Cow Chocolate Truffle Ice Cream Bar.

Simple Truth Natural Pork comes from pigs raised humanely on family farms, and fed an all-
