Recipe For Cumin Crusted Pork Fillets

For my cumin crusted pork fillets I made use of both whole and ground spices. I much prefer to make my own rubs, marinades, curry blends, stocks and sauces than buy premade, salty, full of all sorts of unpronounceable’s! To this end I have a drawer packed full of spices and herbs and often this is my inspiration for a meal. If you are going to make your own rubs etc. you will need a non stick pan for dry frying them, a mortar and pestle for rough grinding, and a spice (read coffee) grinder for fine grinding. Remember, if you use a coffee grinder for your spices do not use it for coffee!
