Pork Scaloppine in White Wine Sauce

Yesterday, I woke up with a craving for Pasta and some sort of protein. I knew I wanted it to be in a white sauce and I was leaning towards giving Pork a try.

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.

 

The Ingredients:

  • 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!

Do you like to experiment with Pork in your pasta dishes?
