Smothered with sautéed peppers, these cornmeal-dusted and fried pork cutlets are a fast and fun weeknight meal.

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless pork rib-end chops, 3/4- inch thick
  • 6 Tbs cornmeal
  • 4 Tbs flour
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, cut in strips
  • 1 medium sweet red bell pepper, cut in strips

Directions

  • Pound pork to 1/4-inch thickness. Blend well the cornmeal, flour, paprika, garlic salt, onion powder, pepper, and cumin. Dip pork in water; allow excess water to drip off. Coat with cornmeal mixture on both sides. In large skillet heat olive oil. Cook pork over medium heat for 4 minutes. Turn over and add pepper strips to skillet. Cook 4 more minutes or until pork is nicely browned and just slightly pink in the center. Remove pork from skillet. Cook peppers 1-2 minutes more if necessary until tender. Serve pork with peppers.

Serving Suggestion: Serve with vinegar coleslaw and mashed potatoes.

Cooking Tip: Do not overcrowd pork cuts when sautéing. Leaving space between them will allow them to brown and cook more evenly.
