Cajun Pork Roast

Low calorie, easy and delicious!

Low calorie, easy and delicious!

Another day at home with little water.  I am clean though.  Just took a bath in about 2 inches of water.  Brought me back to the  days of  staying  at my grandmother’s farm with no running water.  It was fun when I was 5 years old , but now you could say I am spoiled!  The news is that it could be into next week before our water is back to normal.  It could be worse.

I usually grill pork tenderloin , but with all the rain I pulled out an old recipe from  pork The Other White Meat.   Pork is so versatile.  I serve this with Hashbrown Casserole ( I will share the recipe later ) or a baked potato and something  green like asparagus, broccoli, or green salad.  All of this is quick and easy to do.  Here is the recipe.


Cajun Pork Roast

  • 2 lb. boneless pork loin roast
  • cooking oil
  • 3 Tbs. paprika
  • 1/2 tsp. red pepper
  • 1 Tbs. garlic powder
  • 2 tsp. oregano
  • 2 tsp. thyme
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. white pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. cumin
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
Combine all the seasonings

Your prep time  is only about 5 minutes and the oven does the rest.  After taking out of the oven let it rest for about 10 minutes.  This serves  6 at 196 calories each.  ENJOY!!

    usually, i never mix all of the ingredients together before putting them on! i normally do it one at a time, but i learned that it’s better to mix them first!
