Pork Paillards with Sour Cream-Paprika Sauce

Source: Martha Stewart Living, January 2010


  • 16 pork paillards
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil or safflower oil
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken stock
  • 1/3 cup sour cream (or more to thicken)
  • 1/4 teaspoon sweet or smoked paprika


  1. Season pork paillards on both sides with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 5 or 6 paillards, and saute on 1 side until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Flip, and saute paillards until cooked through, about 1 minute. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with remaining paillards.

  2. Add dry white wine to skillet, and deglaze the pan, scraping brown bits from bottom with a wooden spoon, until wine reduces by half, about 1 minute. Add chicken stock and any plate juices. Reduce heat to medium, and simmer until sauce reduces by half, about 2 minutes. Gradually stir in sour cream and paprika. Season to taste, and sprinkle with more paprika if desired.

Cook's Note

Other good flavorings for pork include onion, scallion, ginger, parsley, rosemary, sage, thyme, and grainy mustard. Try deglazing the pan with Madeira, orange juice, or cider.

    This is a popular menu item at our house. Easy and delicious. I caramelize onions or leeks first, adding them back in with the paillards. I also add thyme, and double or triple the sauce, depending on how much pork I cook. Easy and economical to buy a thick cut boneless chop and slice into thin portions.

    This was a lovely dish. It's definitely good enough to serve to dinner guests. I made exactly to receip, but may up the sauce components in order to drizzle the noodles as well as the meat.

    Delicious! I caramelized some onions and leeks and added them to the could add mushrooms, too. Serving over egg noodles tossed with a bit of butter, olive oil, and fresh chopped Italian flat leaf parsley, really good combination.
