I was looking for a quick dinner tonight using a pound of ground pork I had thawed. I just mixed a few things up into this meat, formed patties and seared them off until done. Man, oh, man, were they ever tasty! Hubby really liked them, too! I picked the right two spices for these for sure! This recipe just made my go-to, quick and easy dish list!! They went together in about 5 minutes flat and cooked in about 20 minutes. They cooked so quickly, I found myself waiting on the squash and cauliflower to get done!! The first spice I used for this recipe is my Dad’s recipe for poultry seasoning posted here on my site.The other is a spice I bought at Marshall’s for half price that I’ve REALLY grown to like a lot! It’s called No Salt Lemon Pepper, made by Victoria Gourmet. Not like any other lemon pepper mix I’ve ever tried before. It’s more like Mrs. Dash (No Salt) than a lemon pepper, really. It is a blend of onion, garlic, lemon peel, red bell pepper, turmeric, some proprietary spices, and lemon oil. I catch myself grabbing it often and haven’t put it on a thing I didn’t LOVE it on!! It’s delicious on baked meats, fish, poultry and even enhances BBQ sauce! They have a website if you want to check out their complete line of spices. http://www.vgourmet.com/Seasoning-Blends/c/VictoriaGourmet@SeasoningBlends. There is a wee bit of demarara sugar in their lemon pepper blend, much to my dismay, but clearly < .5 g since the label reads “zero” carbs. This delicious meat recipe is suitable for the Atkins Induction phase.
