Pork Scaloppine Recipe

Pork Scaloppine Recipe
Pork scaloppine, also known as escalopes or fritter, is a classic ingredient in many Italian dishes including, but not limited to, pork parmesan, pork marsala, and pork saltimbocca. It is characterized by a thin piece of pork loin that has been butterflied, beat with a mallet, breaded, and deep fried or pan fried. This should always be served with a sauce as the pork itself is fairly boring and is the featured ingredient in my pork marsala recipe. I prefer to use the pork over the chicken as it has a more distinctive savory flavor and adds more character. Especially when paired with marsala wine sauce. Tasting Guidelines: Taste is savory. Weight is heavy but can be balanced with sauce. Texture is crunchy. Good for people with low to moderate treatment side effects. Best categorized as classic Italian fare.
