Pork Saltimbocca and 26.2

Sharing is caring!

In a pinch and need a quick meal? In about 10 minutes or so you can have this for dinner! Lean, thin cut, pork cutlets sauteed in a buttery white wine sauce topped with prosciutto and a sage leaf. So simple with a ton of flavor, no wonder saltimbocca translated means, ” jump in the mouth”!

*First you’ll want to take your cutlets and pound them down a little to flatten them out a bit.
*Season your cutlets with salt and ground pepper.
*Take a slice of prosciutto and lay it on your cutlet, and gently pound it into the meat, add a sage leaf on top.
*Drizzle a hot pan with olive oil and prosciutto side down fry cutlets about 2 minutes on each side.
*Remove from pan and deglaze with 1 cup of white wine, scrapping up all the brown bits.
*Add 3T of butter to gloss the sauce.
*Return the cutlets back to the sauce and finish cooking. Buon Appetito!

2009 Chicago Marathon

I want to give a big shout out to my son for completing his 2nd Chicago Marathon which was yesterday. That’s him on the right in yellow ready to cross the finish line. He actually knocked 50 minutes off his time from last year! He amazes us all with his dedication and determination! The weather yesterday in Chicago was bitter cold, great for the runners, but not so great for the spectators, notice the gloves, hats, scarves and winter coats. I thought this was fall!

    We love saltimbocca! Such wonderful flavor combinations all in one. I’m lucky because my local butcher sells wonderfully thin lean pork cutlets..hardly any pounding required. I buy them often as they are much cheaper than veal.

  9. Saltimbocca is one of my favorites…I would love to make it at home. Yours looks delicious!
