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

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

Wow, some weather we had in the past day! Yesterday started off windy but by Noon it was a strong
wind around 40 mph. By 2:00 the winds were 50-60 mph. and that's when things started going bad. We kept our power, but a brief flicker, but some finer optic lines came down across  I - 75 which blocked the interstate for about 4 hours and we lost our internet service. Ours was down from around 2:00 till well after Midnight. Some of our neighbors lost their internet, cable tv, and phone service. They have the Time Warner Bundle which you have service for all 3 items. I never did like that for that very reason that happened, one goes and you lose everything. I have internet service through them but have DirectTV and phone service through Cincinnati Bell. It was only 28 degrees this morning and went up to around 50 degrees, but sunny out and just a light breeze. Had to do some cleaning outside, a lot of tree limbs, leaves, and debris scattered about. So anyway for dinner tonight I prepared a Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin w/ Mashed Potatoes and Cut Italian Green Beans.

I purchased the Simple Truth Pork Tenderloin from Kroger the other day, a small one at just over 1 lb. 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 400° for 10 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 by far!

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.
