Pork Scaloppine in White Wine Sauce
Based on the ingredients I had on hand, I decided I would take a stab at making Pork Scaloppine in a White Wine Sauce.
I’m so glad that I followed through on this one after work. The result was a relatively quick but extremely tasty meal. In fact, the hubby rated it an A+ attempt. (It may have something to do with the fact that he’s a lover of pasta and all things resembling a cutlet…but I’ll take it anyway). And, I have to agree with him that it was mighty yummy.
- 4 – 3oz boneless, lean pork cutlets or chops– thin sliced or pounded thin
- 1 cup fresh mushrooms
- 2 Roma Tomatoes, diced
- 2 cloves garlic, diced
- 1 cup white wine
- 2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- ½ cup white flour
- ½ cup egg white
- Salt, pepper to taste
- 1 Box Pasta, Cooked Per Directions ( I used mostaccioli)
- Fresh Parmesan Cheese, Grated
Making Your Dish:
- Bring saucepan with water to boil over medium-high for Pasta.
- Cook Pasta per Instructions
- Heat 1 Tbsp oil (each) in 2 large skillets (1 with high walls) to med-high heat
- Mix flour, salt and pepper to taste for your scaloppine batter
- Dip the pork in egg white & coat each side evenly with flour mixture. Set aside
- In deep skillet, sauté garlic for 1-2 minutes then add mushrooms
- Continue sautéing mushroom garlic mixture until liquid is released – 2 to 4 min
- In other skillet, cook pork chops 4-5 min per side until you get a light brown crust
- Remove pork chop pan from heat and set aside
- Add diced tomato to mushroom mixture and sauté for 3-5 minutes
- Salt and Pepper sauce to taste
- Pour in White Wine & bring to a simmer 1-2 minutes
- Place pork chops in wine sauce & cook 2-3 minutes per side in pan with cover
- Remove pork from sauce one more time and set aside
- Pour pasta into white wine & veggie sauce and mix thoroughly
- Serve pasta in bowl with grated cheese (optional) and a pork chop on top
And voila..the finished dish…mmm mmm good:
Outside of having to deal with washing a few pans at the end of this recipe, it really is simple, filling, and full of flavor. I think the hubby has the right idea – you can’t go wrong with bringing a little pasta together with a well-cooked & seasoned protein – like pork. Delicious!
