The other white meat...

I'm always looking for great recipe applications for pork. I love pork and since I don't get much fish around here, it's a nice break from the all too often chicken and beef. This is a new favorite pork recipe. It's juicy and full of flavor. It's also great on the waist line with only 230 calories per serving. Pair it with some yummy veggies and it's a healthy dinner to counter all those holiday goodies that just keep rolling in.

(Recipe adapted from Cuisine at Home)

¾ C. chicken stock
¼ C. onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic
1 T. Dijon mustard
1 T. Worcestershire sauce
2 T. tomato paste
4 boneless pork chops, loin chops or cut of choice (I pound mine to make them a little thinner)
2 T. veg. oil

1. Blend the broth, onion, garlic, mustard, Worcestershire, and tomato paste in a food processor or blender until onion is minced.
2. Season pork with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large sauté pan over high heat. Add the pork and sear 2-3 minutes per side, or until browned.
3. Remove pork from the pan and keep warm.
4. Add the broth mixture to the pan, scraping up any brown bits. Bring to a boil and simmer 3 minutes, or until slightly thickened.
5. Return pork to the pan along with any dripping; simmer to warm through.
6. Season to taste, spooning sauce over cutlets.
7. Serves 4.
