Paillards are simply pork chops (or chicken cutlets) that have been pounded to a uniform thickness for even cooking; because they are so thin, the pieces cook very quickly. The pork can also be cooked on a grill pan; heat the pan over medium-high for five minutes before adding paillards.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place a pork chop between two layers of plastic wrap on work surface. Using a meat pounder, pound to 1/4-inch thickness. Repeat with remaining pork chops. Transfer to a large resealable plastic bag or nonmetal container. Add balsamic vinegar and oil. Marinate, covered, in the refrigerator 15 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, heat a grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. Remove pork from marinade; season with salt and pepper. Grill until cooked through and browned on both sides, about 1 minute per side. Serve hot, garnished with basil and tomatoes.
