Even though this dish sounds fancy, we promise that it won't have you in the kitchen for too long! These pork cutlets only take about 2-3 minutes to cook, and taste delicious when paired with an easy grain or veggies. 

 

INGREDIENTS

4 very thin pork loin slices, boneless, trimmed of fat (about 4oz.-5oz.)

¾ cups all-purpose flour

salt & freshly ground black pepper

1 large egg

¼ cup milk

2 cups breadcrumbs, plain

3 TBSP. Kosterina extra-virgin olive oil

1 TBSP. fresh thyme

lemon juice and lemon slices

 

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Place each chop between two sheets of plastic wrap (or inside a zip lock bag) and gently pound them out until they are about ¼” thick or less.
  2. Put the flour in a shallow dish and season with salt and pepper. In a second shallow dish, whisk the egg and milk and season again with salt and pepper. Put the breadcrumbs in a third dish and season with salt and pepper. Lightly dredge each piece of the pork in the seasoned flour, then dip in the egg mixture and finally into the breadcrumbs, pressing the breadcrumbs onto the pork gently to achieve an even coating. Place the prepared slices in a platter.
  3. Place a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, and when hot, add the Kosterina olive oil. Gently lay the thin pork cutlets into the pan, sprinkle with the fresh thyme and cook until golden brown and crispy, about 2-3 minutes on each side, depending on the thickness. Transfer to paper towels to drain.
  4. To serve, transfer to a serving dish, season with a little salt, squeeze some lemon juice on and garnish with lemon wedges.

Note: Instead of pork loin, you can also use a small pork tenderloin (about 1lb.) trimmed of fat and silver skin and cut on an angle into six equal pieces. You still need to pound it gently.
