    Ingredients for Pork Scaloppine with A Warmed Tomato Ginger Sauce

      for the warmed tomato ginger sauce

      • 1/4 cup olive oil
      • 1 large shallot minced
      • 2 teaspoons ginger grated
      • 1/2 teaspoon cumin ground
      • 1/2 teaspoon fennel ground
      • 12 ounces cherry tomatoes halved
      • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
      • 1 tablespoon cilantro fresh, finely chopped
      • 1 teaspoon brown sugar light, packed ** NOTE - I omit this ingredient to avoid the added sugars with no real resulting affect to the final taste - the nutritional info below reflects the brown sugar as ADDED.
      • salt and pepper to taste

      for the pork scaloppine

      • 1 2 1/2 to 3 pound pork tenderloin trimmed of excess silver skin and fat
      • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
      • 2 teaspoons Kosher salt
      • 1 teaspoon thyme fresh, minced
      • 1 teaspoon parsley fresh, minced
      • 1 teaspoon black pepper
      • 2 tablespoons olive oil I am using Thea

      Instructions

      The Method

        for the warmed tomato ginger sauce

        • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat until shimmering.
        • Add shallot, ginger, cumin, and fennel and cook until fragrant, about 15 seconds. Stir in tomatoes and ⅛ teaspoon salt and cook, stirring frequently, until tomatoes have softened, 3 to 5 minutes.
        • Off heat, stir in cilantro, vinegar, and remaining 1 tablespoon oil. Season with pepper to taste.
        • Keep on a back burner over very low heat to maintain warmth while you prepare the scaloppine.

        for the pork scaloppine

        • Slice the loin into 12 equal slices, approximately 1 1/2-inch thick, and then one by one, cover with plastic wrap and pound with a meat mallet until each slice is flat and even. You are striving for 1/4-inch thickness. You will need 12 slices to meet the 6 servings per this recipe. It is okay if they are slightly larger or slightly smaller than the 1 1/2-inches in order to have enough servings.
        • Season the flour with salt and pepper, thyme and parsley and then dredge the pork in the seasoned flour.
        • Heat the olive oil in a heavy bottom non-stick saucepan over medium-high heat. Once the oil is shimmering, add the scaloppine to the pan and allow to cook until browned, 2 minutes. Reduce the heat, flip, and repeat the process on the second side until finished cooking, 45 seconds to 1 1/2 minutes. Once cooked, remove from the pan to a warmed plate/platter and tent with foil. Repeat the process until all the scaloppine is cooked.

        to plate this dish

        • Arrange warm scaloppine on a large serving platter. Spoon the warmed tomato ginger sauce over top the scaloppine and serve immediately.

        Notes

        ** MAKE AHEAD - the paillards can be made ahead of time. Purchase pork tenderloin or chicken breasts in bulk. Cut or slice and pound to 1/4" thickness and place in freezer vacuum bag(s). Once vacuum-sealed, toss in the freezer to save for an easy meal another time.
        ** I OMIT THE BROWN SUGAR - I guess I forgot and left it out once by accident, but the result was just as delicious as if I'd incorporated it. The nutritional info herein reflects the recipe WITH the sugar.
