Outer Spice Pork #Recipe and a Spice Giveaway

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
Outer Spice is a brand new spice company that has created four all natural seasoning blends. This Austin-based family-owned business hand selects the highest quality ingredients from around the world to create delicious No Salt and Low Salt seasonings. Outer Spice artisanal seasonings are gluten-free, rich in anti-oxidants, and contain no MSG. Their spices are finely ground and packaged the same day to ensure peak freshness. I love how versatile these spice blends are, because I can use them in a marinade, use them as a rub, or just sprinkle them on top of already prepared food. Outer Spice makes meal preparation faster and easier for me, plus these seasonings allow me to make a healthy, gourmet meal at home.
"Outer Spice makes everything immediately taste better, while saving on costly ingredients, time, and frustration in the kitchen. Using Outer Spice makes you look like a professional chef with minimal effort. It will boost your confidence in the kitchen and make every plate taste delicious,” said Ben Stevens, founder of Outer Spice. "Not only does this blend of herbs and spices make every dish taste better it is also an extremely healthy way to make food without compromising health." 
Outer Spice Pork Recipe

Ingredients:
3-4 pork cuts
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon Outer Spice

Directions:
8 hours before dinner, add 3-4 pork cuts to a zip-closure bag. Add 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil and 1 tablespoon any variety of Outer Spice (I chose the spicy with no salt). Close bag securely and gently toss bag from hand to hand to coat the pork cuts with oil and spice. Marinate 7.5 hours in the bag in your fridge. To cook, place a large skillet on stovetop at high heat, add 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil to the pan, then add spiced pork cuts and cover with a lid. Since these were fairly thin pork cuts, they were pan-fried for about 3 minutes on each side, so if you choose thicker cuts, increase the cooking time. The Outer Spice Pork was moist and incredibly delicious!

Notes: Adding Outer Spice to my pork cuts eliminated my need for adding any other spices and marinating them allowed the spices to seep into the meat. I also spiced up my broccoli cuts just before eating them by adding Outer Spice Original with Himalayan Sea Salt as a table seasoning.
