Stir It Up: Pork Scaloppini, Romano Noodles & German Chocolate Caramel Cake

Posted: Updated:

Pork Scaloppini

3 pounds pork sirloin cutlets, or pork tenderloin (this recipe will work with chicken or turkey cutlets)

1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup canola oil

2 tablespoons butter

1 medium onion, chopped

7 ounce jar roasted sweet red peppers, chopped

4 teaspoons minced garlic

1 can (14-1/2 ounces) reduced-sodium chicken broth

2 tablespoons dried basil

1/4 to 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar

1/2 teaspoon pepper

Trim the fat from the pork cutlets and place between two pieces of plastic wrap and pound to about 1/4 inch thick. If you are using a pork tenderloin, cut into slices or rings and pound as above. Place flour in a pie plate and coat both sides of the cutlets with flour, feel free to pound some flour into the meat. Heat canola oil and butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat and brown cutlets on both sides in batches. Do not over crowd the skillet. Remove the cutlets and keep warm. Add the onions and red peppers to the same pan and sauté until the onions are tender. Add the garlic and cook about another minute. Add the broth, basil, pepper and balsamic vinegar and mix well. Return the cutlets to the skillet, cover and cook over low heat for 15 to 20 minutes or until the meat is tender.

 

Romano Noodles

1 package (16 ounces) egg noodles

1 cup half-and-half cream

1/2 cup grated Romano cheese

1/2 cup butter, cubed

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Cook noodles according to package directions. Drain and while still hot, stir in the cream, cheese, butter, pepper and garlic powder.
