Pork Cutlets Parmesan

Source: Everyday Food, January/February 2004

Ingredients

  • 12 ounces pork tenderloin
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1/4 cup plain dried breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • Coarse salt, for seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Lemon wedges and parsley sprigs, for serving

Directions

  1. Slice pork tenderloin into 12 rounds. Place rounds between two sheets of plastic wrap; with a meat mallet or small heavy skillet, pound to 1/8 inch thick.

  2. In a shallow bowl, beat egg whites with 1 tablespoon water. In another bowl, combine breadcrumbs and Parmesan. Place all-purpose flour in a third bowl. Season pork with salt. Dip pork in flour, then in egg mixture. Dredge in breadcrumb mixture; pat it in.

  3. In a large nonstick skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Saute half the cutlets until golden brown and cooked through, about 1 minute per side. Repeat with another tablespoon oil and remaining pork. Serve with lemon wedges and parsley sprigs.
