Pork Scallops Impanati With Lemon Wedges

Serves: 6
Difficulty: Easy

In Italian cooking "impanati" refers to lightly breading thin pieces of meat and quickly sauteeing. You can use this same technique with pounded out boneless cutlets of chicken, beef, lamb or veal.

12 medium center cut pork chops, removed from the bone and trimmed
2 t. fresh Parmesan
pinch nutmeg
1 t. finely grated onion
salt and pepper
2 – 3 eggs, beaten
2 ½ cup lightly toasted fresh breadcrumbs
6 T. unsalted butter
3 T. olive oil
1 lemon, cut in wedges

Pound each pork cutlet between 2 sheets of waxed paper to about ¼” thickness. Beat the cheese, nutmeg, onion, salt and pepper with the egg in a glass pyrex baking dish. Marinate the cutlets in the egg mixture in the refrigerator for up to 3 hours.

Spread the breadcrumbs on a piece of waxed paper. Heat the butter and oil in a large skillet until hot. Immediately before cooking, dip cutlets into the crumbs, coating completely and sauté quickly until golden on both sides. Do not crowd pan. Keep cutlets warm on a cookie sheet lined with paper towel while you complete the rest. Serve immediately with wedges of fresh lemon for squeezing a the table.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
