Tender & Thin Pork Cutlets with Tomatoes & Onions Gluten Free – Forget What You Know About Wheat(c) 2014

pork BOOK

These cutlets are really packed with flavor; you will feel like you just ordered something in your favorite restaurant!  The pork cutlets in this Tender and Thin Pork with Tomatoes and Onions recipe are pounded super thin and very lightly dredged in flour. The flour of the dredge provides bulk and body base to the delicious and almost tangy sauce the dredged pork cooks in.   I use ceci flour (garbanzo bean/chickpea) but other gluten free flours work really well for dredging.  The key is to not use a starch (like potato starch) because it will clump while cooking and it can not disperse properly in the heated liquid.  Sorghum and masa harina are also excellent for dredging.  These gluten free flours give the dish a special subtle flavor which harmonize. The taste of this recipe makes people say “what is that extra ingredient you used?  It is delicious but I can’t place it…”  I am not joking; this is one gluten free application where the gluten free flavors can be so enticing it makes those who can eat gluten choose not to.

Yields approximately 6 cutlets

1  pound thin boneless Pork cutlets (loin or even center cut can be used), pounded super thin

3  tablespoons Ceci* (Garbanzo Bean/Chickpea) Flour (can use Sorghum)

1 medium large Onion, thinly sliced ringlets

2 Garlic cloves, sliced thin

1  cup chopped tomatoes with liquid (fresh or canned)

1  cup Chicken Broth

2 tablespoons Olive Oil

:  Wash and pat dry the pork.  Pound the pork cutlets to super thin. Place pork between cutting board and plastic wrap.  Use a meat mallet to pound cutlets through plastic wrap.  Begin at the center and pound outward until ultimately reaching the ends.  Put thin cutlets in plate, place covered in fridge until ready to dredge and cook.

Slice onions into thin ringlets.  Make thin slices of the garlic.  Chop tomatoes if using fresh, or just use one cup of canned tomatoes.

In a heavy bottomed fry or sauté pan, heat the oil on medium high.  Add about a teaspoon or more of olive oil (just enough to coat pan). Once warm, add onions and sauté for a few minutes.  Then add the garlic and sprinkle with salt.  Cook for a bit, reduce heat to low, cover slightly and allow to completely wilt, cooking about 10 minutes.  Remove onions and garlic to a small bowl and place aside.

Place flour in shallow bowl.  Reheat pan to medium high, add about a tablespoon of olive oil.  Dredge the cutlets on each side in flour, then add to pan.  Be sure there is ample room between cutlets; you may have to make a few batches.  Cook cutlets about 2 minutes or less on each side.  Just enough to turn outer skin white and dredged coating begins to brown.  Remove from pan and place in plate,

leave aside.

Once all of the cutlets are pre-cooked and the pan is emptied of meat, place pan back medium heat.  Scrape bits of meat with spoon, add just a bit more olive oil to the pan, followed by the tomatoes, cook a few moments, then add the reserved cooked onions and garlic.  Pour the chicken broth into the pan, stir, lower heat and cook for a couple of minutes.  Return the cutlets to the pan.  Make sure cutlets are covered in liquid, place lid on pan slightly ajar.  Cook 15 minutes on medium low heat, flip cutlets and cook an additional 15 minutes.  The gluten free flour coating on the cutlets will provide bulk to the liquid and harmonizes to make a delectable sauce.

Serve with some of the liquid and vegetables ladled on top.
